    Here's some social policy examples you could use:

    - Divorce Reform Act 1969 = Made divorce much easier to obtain, gave women more choice to leave their oppressive husbands, leads to an increase in lone parent families and re-constituted families.

    - Equal Pay Act 1970 = Gives women (and men) a right to equal pay at work for equal work, Decline in patriarchal families (Supporting gender equality at work and indirectly to the family)

    New Labour:

    - Civil Partnership Act 2004 = Gay and lesbian couples allowed to have civil partnerships and also allowed these couples to adopt children (Supporting family diversity)

    However they also introduced policies supporting conventional families.

    - They gave employees the right to time off work for family reasons
    - They introduced a Working Families Tax Credit which helped with the finances of families.

    New Right (governments of Margaret Thatcher and John Major):

    - They changed the taxation policies so that cohabiting couples could no longer claim more on tax allowances than married couples. (supporting the conventional nuclear family)

    However:
    - They made divorce easier to obtain in 1984 though liberal divorce laws
    - They gave illegitimate children the same rights as those born withing marriage.

    Well I'm revising the several topics that have a likely chance of coming up in the exam. I'm trying to revise a good range to increase my chances but I'm not revising everything as It will take too long and I've also got 3 other subjects to revise for. I'm also ruling out the specific topics and questions that came up last year.

    For Family and Households I've revised: Domestic roles and relationships i.e division of labour, decision making and domestic violence. As well as Childhood, social policy, and family diversity.

    For Education I'm revising: Class, Ethnicity, Education, and also labelling, policies + education market and Class + policies which are likely to come up.

    I'm trying to revise all of research methods, but the ones I'm focusing on are questionnaires, unstructured interviews and personal + historical documents as these are the most likely to come up.

    Ahhh that seems smart
    I would leave family diversity and demography and revise the rest!
    Those two came up last year and I doubt they will come up again tbh!

    Yeah they did come up so I'll just leave them as they're unlikely to come up again ^^

    Methods in context questions can be quite annoying tbh

    would you recommend a certain way of revising as no matter what I do, I can never remember the names and dates!

    Well by looking at all the past papers of an exam, organizing each essay question that has come up for each year into a grid, you can figure out a sort of pattern and also see what hasn't come up at all, hasn't come up in a long time or scarcely comes up at all. And also my teacher has told me her predictions. They're just predictions, so they just give you an idea of which topics to prioritize but there is a possibility that something unexpected comes up so prepare for anything really.
