I really think I've done bad in my AQA sociology exam,that I can't stop thinking about it,I just want to see an insight on how people think they have done.

To be honest I think I got a C(very low);A D in Family and Households and maybe a B or a C in Education=Overall a C

This is good for me,but the feeling of me just about missing it makes me even more nervous and upsetting

I did the same units you did Try not to worry about it too much and keep as busy as you can. Personally I think I got a C at best, I've always been very bad at predicting my grades though...

I went to Brunel,the environment felt really positive and the course with in sociology and anthropology was really linked into my hobbies,but Roehampton had a more serious feel,which could really get me somewhere because it was linked more into careers.

The question i' m really panicking from education,was the social policy,I only talked about my class,which was common with my friends as well;didn't even knew from that time what social groups meant.

same! i didnt even revise gender or ethnicity policies. my teacher said they are considered hard questions when they say groups. i'm hoping you dont get bound to a certain band for not mentioning the two, but i think at least mentioning one is better.yeah i royally f*cked up :-)

No one liked Official Statistics either,and the questionnaire linking to ethnicity required a bit of thinking to do,but anyways hopefully these grade boundaries for this years sociology is lower,to put us more in hope

That question was pure luck for me, my mock question was very similar. I'm really hoping the boundaries are low too though

I feel I may end up with a C... Last night I had a bit of a panic attack and started wondering whether I might get a D (or even worse!), basically because I messed up the first exam big time. The second went better but I'm not sure if it'll be enough to bring my grade up much overall. I did F&H and Health. Good luck with results everyone

oh I miss Sociology - good luck you guys and try not to let the worry get to you. If you are at AS then you have another year to fix it if something doesn't go quite right!

all the best

My only strength in Sociology is Social Policy, so I got lucky somehow. I hated the Childhood question though, it was my downfall
