Sociology A level help !!

Hi everyone, I have been doing sociology privately (AQA) and therefore have been self taught. i am also taking psychology for a level so i thought it would be the same but since i haven't sat any exams or done any past paper questions etc. Im not sure if I'll do well on the actual exam even though im predicted an A . can anyone help me out with useful resources, tips and advice, maybe notes as well since i have alot of gaps in my knowledge especially with the media topic and crime and deviance. It would also help a lot if anyone could let me know the key studies and researchers I need to know. Thank you !!

Bro same the exams are so soon and I can’t even answer any past paper questions 😭. A few things but idk if they’re as good as actual notes. Do you have anything? Maybe we can combine our notes together ?

Hi, I took A level sociology last year and got an A* so hopefully I can help you. Ive got a few of my old notes and there’s lots of practice questions/ essays with the answers i wrote too. Let me know what topics you need and I can try find them.

As long as you know what has happened in studies and research, you do not need to know the researcher's name

past papers

mark schemes

take past questions and change them e.g. if a question is on feminism you can change it to marxism and functionalism

Tutor2U videos

Quizlet or paper revision cards

PEEEL paragraphs for essays

most common mistakes on 4 mark questions is people re-using the same point twice
