What predictions do you guys have for the beliefs in society paper tomorrow?? Any thoughts will help. I haven't bothered looking at conservative force because it already came up in the previous 2017 mock and I've left science and ideology as I don't have time to revise it!! PLEASE HELP THANK TOU !!
Also what could possibly come up in the families and households section aswell? As I need to unfortunately rely on luck and pick 3 topics to revise tmrw morning before the exam

Chill friend, I'm only just starting revision for the paper but there is still trine. First off, science and ideology is quite important so maybe skim over that, I think it's likely that they will make questions relevant to the modern world and so will probably ask questions on changing roles in the family and just general social change, e.g. Position of children and childhood, demography and changing patterns, also surveillance, and finally sociology of personal life. For beliefs, I think a question on secularisation is possible along with questions on religion as a force for change.

Finally, make sure you know each perspectives views on both family and households and beliefs, and also the difference between a social action approach and a structural one

Sociology is definitely graded more towards essays which utilise the item and fully address the actual question you are asked, you can still do well without memeorising every study etc but you need a really good understanding of how everything fits together, it's important to get the fundamental differences between and main perspectives on a theoretical levels and how this affects how they study society and individuals, also it's important to understand the progression of both families and belief systems from traditional societies to modernity/post modernity, and how this relates to perspectives in sociology and their assumptions
