    Looking at your answers I have a feeling I didn't do so well.

    What the f--k was I meant to know about Science?

    I guess I did okay in the one about opium of the people.

    and I know I didn't do well on the 33 marker (I did about why people join Sects/NAMs)... How was I meant to know why? They could have at least just asked us to describe sects and NAMs :/

    My Sociology teachers sent our classes a word document enlisting the topics that haven't come up for long, alongside the topics that have come.

    I'd post it on here if I knew how to.

    That 33 marker was basically social groups and religious organisations together. Could've talked about Matza and drift so young people are able to leave society and join a sect, could've talked about how Bruce says middle aged/middle class women join cults because they have time and money etc etc.

    Also I thought it was new religious movements not new age movements?

    My one definitely said "New Age Movements" :|
    However, I did bring in Religious Movements too.
    I don't even know who Matza is.
    I talked about the stuff like (Heelas and) Woodhead's Kendal Project, and stuff about Scientology and Transcendental Meditation and Heaven's gate (cult) and People's temple and David Koresh and the Branch Davidian's.

    I hope I do better in the next exam, because I got an A for Sociology last year and I need to maintain that

    Yeah I think I just got confused myself, wrote religious movements even though i meant new age the whole way through the essay haha

    And Matza comes up in crime and deviance but its possible to use his theory for this too.

    I feel the same way about the next exam but I definitely feel more confident about it. Good luck!

    I think that social policy could be a 33 marker to come up this year, and then possibly suicide or realism/crime prevention strategies, or maybe green crime also.
