Hey guys, I'm in yr 12 and I took sociology as one of my options. and I kinda need advice on how to revise effectively and any tips/ websites to help me revise. I have those moments where I start to panic thinking I'm going to fail and therefore I would like some advice on how to pass A-LEVEL sociology.

im in year 13 doing sociology and my main advice is to write down all the sociologists in your textbook and aim to write at least an a4 page on each of them, then condense it etc
also THE CORNELL METHOD !!! it helps so much (its difficult to explain but google it and use that for a basis of your revision its extremely useful for soc)
also with sociology practice questions are your best friend- after you complete a topic find as many practice questions and do as many as you can and get your teacher to mark them and tell you how to improve
remember youre only in year 12 and youre not expected to get A*s straight away, a levels are hard but if you keep going over things and revising, you should be doing well in no time
dont stress about it and if you have any more questions about soc dont be afraid to ask me !

Try flashcards. This is very good for quick revision. You can write down anything even a question on one side and the correct answer on the back of the card. Alternatively you might like to make up notes.
You can order a set online.

yk what sociology is actually such a calm subject. the only thing thats annoying/ hard is learning about a lot of case studies. if we dont list and talk about them in exams then we just fail. lol
