    I have a feeling that there may be one 24 marker on childhood as it hasn't came up for a couple of years.. it only came up as the smaller markers like 6 and 12

    Good luck for tomorrow!!!

    if it is on childhood I hope it is a open question on childhood

    I'm revising all the perspectives (functionalism, Marxism, feminism & new right) and going to revise social policy as they're my weaknesses
    I've been advised by my teacher not to overdo the revision othere is my brain may go into overload and I'll totally blank out in the exam so I'm just taking it easy.. I know everything to the best I can so I've just got to pull it out the bag..
    I'm sure it's the same for everyone.. We all have the knowledge.. don't forget those A02s haha

    Yeah, I actually quite liked the social policy one but childhood was a bit of a mess... Especially as I was running out of time. Anyway, hope it goes okay for all of us! And good luck with your other exams!

    Can anyone here predict what the Unit two exam could be on? There's another thread for it but we can't work it out!

    Can anyone predict (accurately) what might come up as the predictions for this morning's exam were brilliantly close to what came up!

    Think I messed up childhood. I was worried it wasn't about being a social construct so I didn't solely base my exam on that although I included so many authors such as shorter, Aries, Benedict, Womack, pollock and palmer
