I can't stop thinking about the paper yesterday, how did you find it?
For the 6 marker that asked about policies of why girls achievement has changed in the last 40 years and I wrote about Equal pay act and sex discrimination act but my friends wrote about GIST and WISE and things like that. What did you put?
Also for the 10 marker asking about how the functions of the school can influence educational achievement, what did you write about? I put marxists legitimising inequality and feminists patriarchy which stops girls reaching their own potential. However, other people put factors such as labelling and streaming and I am really confused. What did you write about?
Good luck for the rest of your exams!

I wrote about GIST & WISE, the equal pay act and the divorce reform act for my 6 marker.
Then for the 10 marker I wrote about the functionalist view of role allocation, then criticised it with the Marxists view, then as my second point I wrote about the correspondence principle then criticised that with the New right view.
I found the exam relatively easy!Last edited by aishah28; 18-05-2016 at 21:18.
