I sat my GCSEs this summer and achieved 98/100 on paper 1 and 95/100 for paper 2 (AQA)However, during my GCSES i also found it difficult to find sociology websites. I would recommend that you learn and understand the key concepts such as norms, values etc , and on the AQA website there is a list of these that you will need to learn that will come up on the 'Explain what sociologists mean by the term..' section- https://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subject...-GLOSS1.PDF.If you want to get a deeper understanding of the topic in order to get an A/A*, i would recommend that you look at https://revisesociology.com. Although it is A level content, it includes the names of studies and sociologists that would be great to learn and embed into your example or explanation of your essay style questions.A textbook that i would also recommend ( but is not essential), is the one by Alan Kidd and Nik Jorgensen . Even though my teacher told us not to get it as 'it contained too much information', it helped me so much to understand the topics.Lastly, i would say the most important part is being able to write a clear paragraph for each point of your 4, 5 and 12 mark questions. Make sure you use the Point Evidence Explain and then link back to the question , and if you want to ensure a top mark, try to include theory ( eg. Feminist sociologists would argue that..), and sociologists to evaluate your point. Hope this helps !

Here's a link to the main GCSE Sociology 2018 thread, there's quite a few useful links mentioned in it.

This time last year I was making/memorising flashcards with key terms, key names of studies and sociologists. I also made mindmaps for each chapter using my school text book and this revision book: https://www.google.co.uk/shopping/pr...SpSB5AQ8wIIjwM

That book was what made revision easy for me, as I just spaced it out, going through one chapter at a time, practicing the exam questions and reading through the exemplars in the book. I used this book as the bases for my mind maps and then would flick through my text book/notes to add extra details.

After I finished that I just did practice papers, had mocks, carried on reading/practicing from flashcards and mind maps, then the real exams came round and I found them so much more easier due to all that revision
