I'm resitting both exams for A2 Socio next month and as this resit paper is the last paper of the previous spec I was wondering whether anyone knows if that means suicide is included (as in I should cover enough revision to answer an essay on suicide?)

I'm not re-sitting sociology (already completed the a level) but I think it would be a good idea to cover everything in the specification (including suicide) as I feel that exam boards won't be recycling questions anymore :^) good luck for your exams though, you're gonna ace them!

I'm doing this paper but not retaking
I'm doing sociology all in one year... decided to do the old syllabus

I think the predictions are for crime
33 marker - social policy, values or action theories I think

Which papers are you retaking?
For FAMILIES: i think one of the perspectives/ childhood
For education: I think ethnicity/ class (kind of hard to predict for education)
For beliefs: Its so hard to predict but i think that social change will come up as one of the 33 markers
And for crime: im sure values/ sociology as a science will come up

i got an A last year in AS sociology, but for this year, especially as i am doing Beliefs in Society, Crime and Deviance and Theory and Methods... it will be so difficult.

I really don't understand state crime or green crime... and theory and methods, well... there's way too much to learn!! my first exam is the 8th June, and i don't know anything & i have a horrible feeling the exam questions will be on difficult topics. i am absolutely doomed.

what's everyone else's thoughts?

i am dreading it... especially because they are in 2/3 papers there's way too much new information & some of the content just doesn't make much sense!!

I can send you state and green crime if you like I've got a simplified PowerPoint from class, and I have the same feeling as well, and same I find it annoying that our a grades from last year are now meaningless they should have entered us into just the a2 exams
