Hi! My year 11 exams are coming up and I can't seem to find any preliminary past paper exams to study for 'the social and cultural world'. Does anyone have any links to practice papers and solutions?


Thanks! :)

hey guys, just wondering if i've made a huge mistake.
so basically with the cross cultural i chose generations (1980s to now) i have over 20 responses for my survey and am worried about the fact that the max age bracket is 25+. since i have chosen a cross cultural of 1980s, can i refer to those of 25+ years as generation Y or have i made an irreversible mistake. i am so scared bc i am so far into my pip that i can't possibly choose another cross cultural. Please help.

thankyou xx

Hey, jelena_nina2001!

If you haven't received as many responses from people 25+, I would recommend changing that option to a more flexible one and just continue distributing the survey. You'll lose a few responses but at least the next answers you get will be more accurate. I don't think there's anything to worry about there. You could highlight that as something you realised was a flaw in your survey later on in the PIP which demonstrates that you have critically reflected on it and taken action on to ensure social and cultural literacy, as well as ethical research  :)

Thanks but i have recieved 50% of my responses as 25+ and am legit having a panic attack bc i think my pip has just went down the drain. so do i just say 25-30 and 35-40 as being generation Y (add that in to survey) or????

So firstly, there's no need to worry. Your PIP has definitely not gone down the drain and there is room and time to rectify this. Let's figure out an action plan :) Since you've received so many responses already from people in that demographic, I would suggest to just keep it. However, perhaps choose a different cross-cultural comparison so the age concern isn't so much at the forefront and is only something you can note as a slight flaw in your research in the annotated bibliography. What's your topic exactly so we can see if that's a possible option?

Hey there,
Your PIP hasn't gone down the drain! Even if you stuff up your questionnaire, you can still talk about it in your annotated bibliography. When I sent out my questionnaire, a teacher told me that my questionnaire was very biased and I started freaking out whether my results were still valid (and by this time, I had 90 responses). I spoke to my teacher and she said these results are still valid even though my questions were biased. So no need to worry about your PIP going down the drain because those results can still help you with your PIP.

Hope this helps!

it's about disability potrayals in media and how they have evolved over time, and their impact on the sense of identity of someone wth a disability.

Awesome, so perhaps consider a cross-cultural comparison between age groups, as opposed to generations, and define anyone under 25, for the sake of your PIP, as "youth." Luckily, UNESCO has considered the youth age bracket to flexibly to be 15-24 years of age which works out really well for you! You can read about this here and reference it in your PIP as a decision you have made. Hope that helps and alleviates some stress off of you!

Hello !

We have a guide about research methodologies right here

The area specific for content analysis can be found down below:

Quote
Content Analysis: So this can be done in terms of both types of research. In terms of quantitative, it is done to detect and account. This data can then be collected in a way that can be quantified. For example, you could look at a particular topic e.g racism and see how it is portrayed in different pieces of media over a period of time.
In terms of a qualitative  method is used to analyse and interpret themes, and words and images from film, art, music and other media. After analysing these responses you (the researcher) make QUALITATIVE judgements about meanings of your selected content. For example, look at a specific event like say ANZAC day, and look at different media that addresses that event. Be aware that for content analysis, there can be a degree of bias as the articles you select to analyse (regardless of whether you’re doing quantitative or qualitative research) will always be influenced by your unique contextual situation and perspective (extension history students-you’d know what i’m talking about here). I did an assignment regarding content analysis in year 11, and i was one of the only ones who made mention of this potential bias due to context and perspective n their research (funnily enough all the people who included this potential bias “disclaimer” are the ones who got an A). So it should add a bit of snazzzzzzzz to your research and it does make your research sound more like some dude with a phd is doing it. (It sounds a bit more formal)

Hope this helps :)
Which will hold greater rule over you? Your fear or your curiosity?

I'm currently working on a Society and Culture Assessment task and was wondering if people would be able to give me feedback on my answer. It is a ad in essay and my teacher hasn't been very helpful. I have attached my response. Thanks in advance.

Hey there,

So sorry this took a while but I've added some comments in your essay in the attached document.

Hope this helps!

Hey there,

It's a bit difficult to define personal identity because it's very philosophical and philosophy gets very complicated really fast. Personal identity is essentially what defines you as an individual- it's the component that makes you unique. This can include your personality and memories (I'm pretty sure there's more to it but let's avoid spiralling). Social identity is the sense of who you are based on the groups you identify with. This includes your ethnicity, religion, family- it's kinda like the "us vs them" mentality. Think of social identity as the stereotypical cliques you see in those teen chick flicks.

The reason why the agents of socialisation is heavily linked to personal and social identity is because those factors shape both aspects of your identity.

Here are a few resources that might be helpful:
http://psychology.anu.edu.au/files/Abstracts-Presentations-1-Personal-and-Social-Identity-Self-and-Social-Context-Princeton-1992.pdf (if you find the whole paper confusing, stick to the abstract and see if it makes sense)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trqDnLNRuSc
https://www.simplypsychology.org/social-identity-theory.html

Hope this helps!
