    Good plan, I'm just woried that they're going to make us do a short question on it, like 4+8 or something, that will be so awkward, I really don't want that to happen :'( I have spent so many hours trying to write an essay on this bit, I think I've almost got it now but whatever I write I'm not totally happy with, it's just so annoying that it's more or less guarenteed to come up.
    Are you writing this essay plan on the computer, if so, can i have a look at it to see whether i could add a few more points on mine.

    Your teacher is seriously stupid! There has been a change in the spec!! Words such as magical thinking will now be used etc.. What i'll do, is tomorrow morning i'll find my notes of what is changed and repost them up for you! It's not much of a change but if some words are different you dont want to risk not knowing what they're asking!
    We've even spoken to him about it and he still says the spec hasn't changed. I am seriously so glad that I did not take this exam in January because I had no idea about the changes. Thank you so much .

    This is the exact same as me! I think we're having a class vote on whether to do media or anomalistic Not sure which one I'd rather do. We've just finished schizophrenia, how are you finding it? x
    Haha, that's what we did :P Media won by about 1 or 2 votes, which i didn't mind cos when I read over Anomalistic it didn't look as interesting as I thought xD

    And I'm finding schizophrenia quite good and its not that difficult but in media there's soo much to remember so i'm struggling :L and research methods... i still get confused over statistical tests, and i've been over them millions of times xD
    how about you?? x

    The 'models of addiction' totally suck, I can barely get anything on cognitive, and I'm pretty sure that's what is going to come up. Everyone does research methods but I'm doing depression rather than schizophrenia.

    Cognitive ey? Are you an avid predictor haha. Cognitive is quite straight forward, do you have the dog book the large one. It is really helpful.

    Yes but I find it hard to apply to smoking / gambling and get good evaluation :/

    It is difficult since, the question is broken up and you have to apply to a senario.

    Yes you do apply the IDA's.

    Okay I suppose, I think I've settled on something for issues of diagnosis,still not totally happy but I don't think I will be with whatever i write for that section which sucks because I'm pretty sure it's going to come up.

    If I could just crack the cognitive model of addiction then I've pretty much got all of the main content down and have quite a bit memorised, going to go through all of research methods now, should get that done by middle of next week or so and then its just going over it all!

    This is all so stressful, this is in many respects the most important exam I'll ever take.

    keep at it! I'm learning without teachers ! its not easy with a full time job either!
    but I find the more you practice the easier it gets, you just have to translate it all into something you understand rather that what the book says, like in simple terms really.

    only 3 weeks to go!!!!!!!!!! oh god just realised lol.

    Not getting on very well with Media. I'm still confused about the topics that can come up. Can you clear this up for me? It would be really appreciated, thanks

    sure what do you want to know? from my understanding it seems they will ask us 3 questions which seem to be usually split with two bigger ones and one smaller one. big ones vary in size and ask you to apply knowledge to certain scenarios it seems.

    For vulnerabilities of addiction or risk factors question what is the best way to structure it?
    e.g A01 e.g. Age is a risk factor...
    A02 supporting evidence i.e a study
    and then explain how the study relates to the scenario given.

    this particular type of question usually comes up so any help on this i would really appreciate it thanks

    also does anyone have any predictions for addiction i know it quite hard to predict anyway.

    my predictions for schizophrenia is therapies but a split question

    (a) Outline one psychological therapy and one biological therapy for schizophrenia (8)

    (b) Evaluate the therapies you have outlined (16)
