    How did everyone else approach the 20 marker for families? Functionalism in depth and discussing the other theories?
    i did like 2 main paragraphs on functionalism so in depth for 2 then the other paras focusing on different theories but with a functionalist criticism sometimes, but they way you did it is just as fine...everyone has their own little structure haha

    Evaluate functionalist views on the role of the family. I gave Functionalism in depth and touched on the main ideas for Marxism, Feminism and the New Right. Did you know if we needed give all the theories in detail or focusing more on Functionalism and just discussing the others as Functionalism was the focus for the question. I'm really sorry about all of this just want to see what other people did

    You have done fine, focus on functionalism and evaluate with any other theories. There is no correct way to do this. Lots of different ways to approach the question. Different schools do different structures.

    In the AS level sociology exam there was a question on the evaluation of the materialist approach to social class differences in health for 20 marks. If I talked about cultural and behavioural approaches instead and had only one small paragraph on the materialist approach would I get any marks?

    Yeah you would still get marks! Don't be worrying probably half the marks not sure since you addressed the other areas in depth
