    Hi, I'm in year 12 at the moment and In October i got an E on my first assessment. But now I've been trying really hard on every essay and so far have gotten all As and a few A*s. i really want to achieve a high mark on my next assessment which is on Wednesday 7th of March. Does anyone have any tips? i feel like the only reason why I'm not doing well in the assessments is because i can't seem to remember all the information and i forget the theories and sociologists.

    Put theories on mind-maps and sociologists on flashcards. Keep going over them! Use quizlet, they have a lot of flashcards!

    Write down all of the key theories and sociologists on individual flash cards and just go through them over and over again - look at them, write down the theory associated with the theorist and then turn it over to see if it's right.
    Also, I really like doing a mind map on one topic and writing down everything I already know about the topic in one colour, then once I cant remember any more I go through all my revision materials/books and write down everything I didn't know in another colour.
    Making revision powerpoints can be helpful and also looking at past questions and either writing an essay or just bullet points of what you'd put in the essay then compare it to the examiner's report (examiner's reports are actually helpful, unlike the sociology mark schemes).
    - I'm in year 13 at the moment btw hope this helps
