If you're doing the sociology paper this Thursday (Education unit) can you guess any potential questions that can come up. Also what theory and methods questions do you think will come up. Do you also have any general tips and advice?

Hi ! I heard that ethnicity hasn't come up in a while, so that could be in there (which would be a nice essay to get I think). I also believe you are likely to get a question on structured interviews, unstructured interviews, or questionnaires because they are the most relevant when studying education! That's what I'm telling myself anyway. The only tips I could give you is to basically make quizzes and get someone to ask you them over and over again, this can really help remember the sociologists. Condense your notes down to one sentence per topic and include all the keywords. When you're doing your essay on methods in context remember to include classrooms, pupils, teachers and school system and how they affect the research. Goodluck!

Thanks these seem like really good tips and advice! Also you know the 10 marker for theory and methods what do you potentially think could come up.
