    Hey there,
    Firstly I think the best thing to do is to print the spec for each of your exams. To accompany this I recommend you buy a decent revision guide for each of your exams. It is best if they are made by the same exam board. Set a specific time to revise a certain topic for a certain test (personally timetables, I feel are not a good idea because if your like me your schedule changes all the time). After you finished revising highlight any parts of the spec you are unsure of and re revise it. When you are ready and feel like you have covered everything, move onto past papers. Closer to the exam review all past paper questions and use the spec inconjunction with this to predict any questions for the exam- only do this once you have covered the whole spec! I know for sociology state crime and post modernism were not asked/not asked recently and therefore I predicted it and it came up! It was the same technique I used for geography and that to had worked out perfectly. Good luck with your revision and remember the earlier you start revision the more prepared you will be.
    I hope this helps

    You should invest in the "success at sociology" Alevel revision books they are fantastic and a great resource for breaking topics down 😀
