    It obvs depends on the questions, so for 30 markers I do an intro, minimum 6 paragraphs of content and evaluate at the end of each paragraph, I generally do another paragraph with synoptic links and then conclusion

    Hi guys,
    Last years paper consisted of a 4 marker on cultural factors in ethnic differences, 6 marker on gender and subject choice, 10 marker on influence of parental choice on achievement and the 30 marker was on the role of the education system in transmitting ideas and values.
    Methods in Context - Labelling and Field experiments
    The final 10 marker was on practical advantages of documents.
    Seems like an alright paper, what do you guys think?

    Hi everyone !! Glad I found this thread as I'm struggling with sociology this year. Basically last year I had and amazing teacher who was brilliant and I got an A. However this year my teacher ain't so great. She teaches us in note form with no detail and contradicts how my teacher last year taught us to do essays. I barely know anything and when I tell her I don't understand something she tells me I do and doesn't help. If we were to have an essay on functionalism I'd bring in Marxism and feminism to evaluate it but today she said don't bring that in the question only asks for functionalism. However I always use that structure and my teacher last year said she taught us to A2 standard with that structure. I would just like to know how you guys structure the essays? Thank u !!

    I’m teaching myself sociology in my gap year and your advice would be really helpful! I’ve never had a teacher for it so I’m not sure exactly what is the best way to revise and how much content I should be learning from the textbooks
