Sociology exam examples.

Hi everyone,

This is my first post on here so i'm not too sure what to write here to be honest. 

I have attached an example of an OCR as level Sociology test; which includes 8, 16 and 24 marker questions, which all feature in the unit 1 sociology exam. 

My 8 mark answer scored 6/8 and the feedback given stated that i needed to develop the concept more. However the use of sociologists was effective and correct.

My 16 mark answer scored 16/16. My feedback said that this was a perfect answer with the cottect use of concepts and sociologists, well developed with a clear understanding.

My 24 mark answer scored 20/24. My feedback stated that i hadnt quite developed the concepts enough before listing sociologists. I was told that i made the concepts too brief in order to add more sociologists, where as i should of used less sociologists and made my concepts more detailed. 

I believe that this could help you if you are revising as my responses would have come together and scored an A overall. 

I hope this is okay for everyone, sorry if i have missed anything! Any questions are more than welcome and i hope that this helps people! Thanks:)
