How can i improve my grade from a B to an A in sociology?

To improve your grade from a B to an A your exam answer must be in depth and concise. A B grade student will include key terminology that will earn marks for knowledge; however, an A grade student would take this a step further and define the key terminology within their answer to portray knowledge and understanding, which will subsequently earn them more marks. Furthermore, a B grade student will answer the question adequately, yet they may not illustrate outstanding understanding of a concept to be in the top bands. To improve upon this one may use a paragraph structure known as: PEEL. P: point. E: example. E: explanation. L: link. This simple structure will enable you to earn marks for your application, and for your knowledge. This technique will also allow one to answer the question properly, as it is easy for students to lose track of what is actually being asked from them. The explanation part should dominate the paragraph as it is significant for the student to include relevant theoretical perspectives. This differentiates a B grade student from an A grade student.

Hi HabeebahMy name is Giselle. I can tutor you for A level Sociology.An excellent way to raise your grade from a B to an A is to work through past exam papers. Try to write your answers in the style of an essay; and practise past exam papers.Once you have written your answer in the style of an essay using the PEEL technique P point E example  E Explanation L Link; use the mark scheme to see what examiners are looking for.It is also important to read the mark scheme as it highlights the difference between a B and an A.Also look at the number of marks allocated.For example:A 12 mark question = 1-2 pages of detail in a structured essay using PEELA  16 mark question = 2 - 3 pages of detail in a structured essay using PEEL.Once you have written your answer look at the mark scheme to see where you can gain points. The more past papers you write the easier it is to learn how to write an A grade essay.Gradually, (as long as you are honest with yourself) you will be able to mark your own assignments against the mark scheme and see whether they are C, B, or A. The more past paper you write (which can be downloaded from the internet); the better you will become at writing that A grade assignment or exam.
