Hi there,

desperately needing help on the key terms used on how to describe different social classes
- closed/open society
- ascribed/achieved status
- absolute/relative mobility
- intergenerational/intragenerational mobility
- social closure
- meritocratic society

Also I have just come across a study on mobility by David Glass 1954 which he 'found evidence of short range social mobility, equally upward and downward' Also another keyword Im stuck on is 'long range social mobility'

If someone could please help me with this or equally lend me notes on stratification and social class I'll forever be grateful - im reading through my own notes completely LOST

Thanks!

My exam board is OCR but I'm doing this topic and I'm also kinda struggling haha I can tell you that ascribed status is when an individual is assigned a status at birth like how the royal family are born into high class, or they've inherited it from their parents. On the other hand achieved status is when someone works for their status like Alan Sugar or David Beckham. They work their way up the social hierarchy. Hope this helped!
