    I have a major question in relation to mainly the Crime and Deviance exam.

    So I've noticed that in the blue sociology textbook, all of the practice questions begin with an 'evaluate sociological explanations of/evaluate the view that...'.

    Going back through pastpapers, i've noticed that the majority of questions star with 'assess the functionalist (or whatever) explanations of crime'

    Every practice question in the textbook asks to evaluate - never assess. The specimen does this aswell. Does this mean that sociology questions will always ask us to 'evaluate' and never 'assess'?

    Every single practice question in the textbook asks to evaluate - never assess. The specimen does this aswell. I'm wondering whether anyone else has noticed this? Does this mean that all 30 mark sociology questions ill always ask us to 'evaluate' and never 'assess'?

    Hope I didn't confuse anyone here
    yeah ive noticed that too having a flick through the little revision books...'assess' has been removed from the command words as well so its unlikely they'll ask it by the looks of it...but assess and evaluate basically mean the same thing anyway so it wouldnt matter too much if it does come up randomly haha

    ive just been writing notes up from class and then putting them into powerpoints then writing them out again another 3 times and testing myself with kahoots and quizes (gotta make revision somehow!), recently every night i do revision on last years units..it took me a week of about an hour or two at night to cover education and then another week for families
    how about you?
    and i know the content is sooo excessive

    Yep i agree ethnicity could come up for education. Or possible state policies.
    difficult to predict for crime and deviance though
