    Discuss two or more methods of Stress Management - 12 mark essay question.

    There was another 4 mark question: what has social influence research shown about social change - this threw everyone off...

    Well Jan 09, Jan 2010, Jan 2011 were all on abnormality
    June 2009, june 2011 were on conforming etc
    and june 2010 and jan 2012 were stress

    Well, I think that the 12 marker aint going to be on stress as the examiner never repeats the same section in a row. Either daily hassles or life changes may come up as an 8 or 6 marker for the stress section. But as for the 12 marker I think its going to be on either the Behavioural or Cognitive Approach to Psychopathology (on the abnormality section). The 12 marker is either going to be based on section B (Social Psychology) or Section C (Individual Differences). For Section B, the 12 marker could be Outline and Evaluate Minority Influence or Majority Influence.

    And dont worry, u are not the only one who is finding abnormality hard, i'm so baffled lol. I really dont know how I'm going to pass this exam. But just keep re-reading your notes and you'll be fine

    And as for the 4 marker that blew everyone away, I have no idea what the answer is. It's unlikely they will bring that question again, so dont stress. Good luck with the exam.

    Well thank you for offering your notes Nash, but I am not reading notes at the moment, I'm going through past papers. You should as well, so that you know how to tackle the question and what the examiner wants you to write. Its better than reading notes and plus u will remember more. Thanks again for offering. But I'd rather do past papers than read notes right now. I have plenty of notes, but thank you again. Good luck once again. Peace out x

    Hey, sorry for the late reply. I found the exam okay, but I left a lot of question on the stress section as I never really studied for it. But thank god conformity came up! Seriously, I was so happy when I seen that as the 12 marker! But this may not be a good thing. Because the 12 mark essay question was so easy, the exam board my increase the grade bounderies like they did for Unit 1. Lets just hope, the grade bounderies remain low eh But how did you find it? What question did you find hardest?
