@Zara,

My paper went very fine but while attempting the question of Durkheim, I explained in detail his theory of suicide and while explaining anomic suicide, I explained anomie and then moved on to explaining "How this theory can help to reduce the you suicide attacks"..Now I am thinking I should have made a separate heading explaining ANOMIE but in paper, this skipped my mind as I had explained all this in his anomic suicide and in whole question, I kept giving reference of Durkheim.

Bit unease now as I think I should have explained that separately as well. But my question had already exceeded 5-6 pages BEFORE I moved on to youth part!

yeah you are right ,but to attempt conceptual papers you have to go through the basics of that subject

i attempted four questions but couldnt sure of any one of them
because in such conceptual and analytical papers all depends on examiner,
may be i had explained all my view points but examiner is demanding something else.

so mostly questions in my paper are on risk

This is good, paper must be conceptual but please think for a while was it a paper of graduation level? Every one opting sociology does not have masters in the subject.

@Zara,

Yes,while explaining the anomic suicide, I explained in detail that this is suicide is DUE to anomie in the society or "normlessness" in the society. So while explaining that, I explained the "anomie" concept. Waisey, according to my knowledge anomic suicide is caused in the society due to anomie or normlessness in the society..isn't it..?
