The item stated about something to do with education with fragmentation. I used it from the item and associated this word with marxism (correspondence principle) by setting the ruling class belief by preparing people for the future labour force. I've seen the word fragmentation before used by marxists but apparently it's also to do with postmodernism. Does this mean I am wrong?

Hey, unfortunately 'fragmentation' refers to postmodernist. They are critical of Marxist as an outdated, structuralist theory. I understand why you associated it with Marxism, but postmodernist argue that instead of schools teaching us the 'correspodence priniciples', the curriculum is diverse and directs us towards a specialised market place, in an era of post-Fordism. But i wouldnt worry too much, if u stated key marxist ideas like class exploitation u will be fine! How did u find the rest of the exam?

I used the word 'fragmentation' once luckily but yeah i did indeed base that entire paragraph solely on marxists beliefs as well as my other two paragraphs based on marxism . I even used the post-fordism era as the criticism correspondence principle point strangely enough. So I won't get penalised for that small fragmentation mistake right?

Other than that the exam was fine although I said positivists dislike documents for one of the 10 mark paragraphs because it's more likely to be qualitative than the preferred quantitative (but I think that's wrong).

I personally think you will be fine, it's a minor error, so they will probably ignore it because the rest of your essay makes sense.

Also, the documents question was a slightly restrictive. It asked for 2 practical disadvantages, I talked about access and time, so as long as you related postivism to a practical issue you should be okay!

Btw, it always feels worse when people say they put something different, just he optimistic and ace the next two exams as well Goodluck!!
