    Hi, so does anyone know of any predicitions that have been made for the 2017 AS sociology Education with Methods in Context exam?- My teacher predicts ethnicity or gender will appear. Also, for paper 2, what research method do you think is highly likely to come up?

    Thanks

    Oh, I haven't revised social policies yet :/ but i've been revising by learning key studies and evalaution points for each sub- topic e.g Social Class Internal factors etc. Revision is going okay, just going to re-cap things over the weekend, but been studying a lot for my other A levels that count 50% towards the whole A level. How about you?

    I'm struggling to remember names of sociologists ( every time I remember one I forget another hahaha

    And ye I didn't give too much dedication to socio & focused much more in my other subjects!! I really hope the 20 marker is something on underachievement and ethnicity or gender haha, thanks & all the best to you too

    Oh yeah, theres alot but I don't think you will loose many marks unless its a key sociologist like Durkheim or Gilbourn for example. What other subjects do you do? and yeah I definetley dont think social class underachievement will come up, as that was the 20 marker last year; but I reckon its a high chance the 20 marker will be on ethnicity or gender too! - Hoping for 'Explain why ethnic differences underachieve as a result of factors outside of school' and Thank you!

    Economics and history wbu?

    Oh Law and Media - I also started off with History, but dropped it because I lost interest in it and was too time consuming. Do you do Nazi Germany and Italy?

    [QUOTE=x_Megan_xo;71409258]Germany and Spain it might be the same course you're referring to tho because we actually get a choice of doing either Italy or Spain - but our department chose Spain.

    I used to do Eng Literature but i became too stressed with 4 AS haha, it was nice to get the weight off my back

    and IK what you mean with History, as someone who loves history & plans to study it at uni, the A level can get a bit tedious in some aspects & its quite content-heavy :/

    Oh fair enough- Yeah history has so much content & I never understood the structure of the essays, hence why i dropped it after mock exams in feburary. What university are you hoping to go too?

    This has no relation to sociology anymore but oh well haha

    [QUOTE=x_Megan_xo;71409438]Hahaha oh well 😂 and it all depends on my AS grades. If I do get my desired AAA (doubt I will with current lack of revision tho!!) then i'd love to apply somewhere in London, such as UCL, or KCL - perhaps even be a little ambitious and go for Camb. Just depends how I do this year tho!

    I need to have a proper visit of the different unis at some point to see which I prefer most in terms of atmosphere & location

    Do you have any ideas of where you'd like to end up?
