A Level Sociology HelpWatch
As a yr13 A* Sociology student whose exams have been cancelled I am happy to help tutor anyone or answer one off question just PM me
Ah yes I had this issue before my first mocks, but honestly if you do constant revision its surprising how much you remember! How are you organising your content for revision? I did mind maps for each individual topic, my friend did flashcards. They help you feel more confident that you know each topic. Also realistically you are never gonna remember absolutely everything about every topic, and really you don't need too. What topics have you covered so far? And I'll dig out some quizzes on them if you want
I don't know what board you did but we do OCR
i'm in year 12 and im doing aqa, i wanted to ask how do answer long answer questions without wafaling because when i would attempt a 20 or 30 marker all i end up doing is waffle, do you have any tips or advice that can help me with this issue ?
For non item questions I would just replace the evaluation with a second point that is linked eg in a question on labelling theory of crime and deviance I would refer to Cohen (folk devils and moral panics) then add in Lemert (primary and secondary deviance).
I would also suggest writing them and seeing if there's anything you can cut out or make shorter then use that next time. If you want you can send some my way and Ill help you work it out - Emma
Hello just wondering how you made your notes for sociology because that’s what I am struggling on
1. Make them as simple as possible while still getting much needed detail - but not too much as realistically in the exam you don't have the time to go too in-depth into a specific theory
2. Use different coloured pens or go back and highlight/underlined
3. At the end of your note section write a summary/define key words
Hope this helps feel free to ask anymore questions 😊
Hiya, I'm going to study A level Sociology this coming September, and I just wanted to ask what is the best textbook for the AQA spec and which is one you used or recommend. Thank you.
I used the Napier Press ones, there's 2. They have a lot of detail and lots of example exam questions. I got mine on eBay for a good price, they're second hand but completely fine. Try and get the newest ones if you can I think they were for the 2015 spec onwards. Otherwise there won't be as updated research and the questions are different. Let me know if I can help further
