    Just wondering, anyone out here who did well in sociology at A-level, how many names and statistics did you include in your answer? I'm being overloaded with names and I don't know whether I should be memorising them all or whether more marks are awarded for detail.

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    You dont need to remember every name, mentioning 5-10 names is probably ideal though. However I think the general structure and points of your answers are more important though.

    I found it extremely hard to remember the name so I only learn the commons ones like Marx and Durkheim etc. and I was still able to get an A.
