sociology a level - revision tips and advice pls!!!Watch this thread
my teacher advised us to keep a sort of spreadsheet which i developed into this: i have 1 whole spreadsheet per chapter and inside they're broken down into topics - i have 1 sheet for aims in the spec, 1 sheet for 'key arguments/studies', and 1 sheet for 'key concepts'.
this is the first pic i attached. (we did culture, not family)
i'd advise keeping track of key terms and sociological perspectives - i try to have definitions of key terms at the top of my notes, i always make sure i have perspectives written down in my notes
make sure you have a copy of the spec somewhere, even if it's in a spreadsheet thing. in terms of answering questions, i just keep Point Evidence Explain Link in mind and make sure i understand the key concepts the question is asking about with any opposing perspectives you can add in. i put as much as i can into flashcards on Anki and this is my favourite thing for memorising what i need to know.
i'm not sure what grades you've been getting or what exactly you're struggling with but i really hope this can simplify it (-:
EDIT: LOL i forgot the evaluate in PEEEL sorry ! it's Point Evidence Explain Evaluate Link evaluation is so important in sociology
