Hey I looked at the examiners reports and past papers and I'm guessing there will be a question on like feminism, Marxism etc.

I've been focusing on learning differences in achievement for CAGE (class, age, gender and ethnicity)
I need to do a bit on government policies cause I think that could come up as well.

Anything you're particularly not feeling that strong on?

I think something will come up, maybe not directly but you'll probably have to write it in your answers so that it's more detailed.

I took the education paper last year and one of the 20 mark questions were on government policies on education policy, so its therefore unlikely to come up again this year. So I wouldn't put to much time into it unless it comes up in the six marker.

By Government policies, do you mean marketisation and privatisation policies? E.g Ema, league tables, globalisation etc?

If you look at the specimen paper, the 20 mark is on internal factors in education on "social groups" meaning CAGE ( class, age, gender, ethnicity), what does this mean?? Is it likely it's not going to be asked as a 20 mark? What else could b?

I think its either going to be Marxism or ethnicity because those two haven't come up. I hope it's ethnicity because I'm really struggling with Marxism.

GUYSSS, I'm so confused....let's say gender comes up, do we need to evaluate it with ethnicity?

If so, what if a theory Q comes up? (Like marxism or functionalism) I'm so confused

It don't think it will be social class because aqa gave an example of that in the new specification paper but it was internal factors so external factors of social class could come up.
