I'm actually struggling man :'(

I need to get a B in sociology to get into uni... I'm currently on a D/E OMGGG

My question is:

HOW DO I ACE THIS DEVIL SUBJECT

For AS I am studying:
EDUCATION
FAMILIES AND HOUSEHOLDS

For A2, I am studying:
CRIME AND DEVIANCE
MEDIA
I do try to revise the basics, it's just memorising theories and all that

I enjoy working with mindmaps, which I've also attempted

What annoys me is that since it is linear this year, ALL THE EXAMS FOR THESE TOPICS WILL BE SAT AT SIMILAR TIMES FGSSS

I feel like there's just too much content to be put into a mindmap, so if You lot have any other revision techniques, PLEASE LET ME KNOW

Much appreciated

Just clarify for me, which syllabus are you doing? It looks to me like you've listed the old syllabus structure so I just want to check.

Either way, for content, the Collins A level books are the best. They are discontinued because there are newer resources for the new syllabus now but the content is excellent. Memorise it and refine your exam/writing technique. The Collins books are the red ones on amazon/ebay. The front covers of the four books are fish, ladybirds, penguins etc.

Thanks for your reply!

Forgot to mention, this is the NEW syllabus for AQA.
We are using the A LEVEL SOCIOLOGY text book in Blue for A2, and red for AS

Okey dokey

Condense theories from textbooks into a list of bullet points to help with memorising.
