    The different ways in which psychologists view the world, i.e. some believe in the biological approach, some the psychodynamic, etc.
    Ah ok, it all makes sense now! Thank you

    Hi guys, I'm doing depression, media and (obviously) research methods.

    Does anyone have any predictions for depression? They are always 24 mark essays right? So I can at least limit my revision to a few topics? Or is it best to revise everything?

    I would revise everything. If you get a bad paper, you'll have lost 24 marks otherwise...

    I think Diagnosis and Classification of depression with issues of reliability and validity, will come up.

    Stop worrying Saj! You only have this one exam are you're going to ace it. Most people on here have 3 or more exams.

    This is my first TSR post so be gentle

    Does anyone know how specific the questions on the three models of addiction can be? Can they ask you specifically about biological explanations of relapse for smoking, or do they have to be more generic and ask about a whole model? i.e initiation, maintenance and relapse?

    That sounds like a serious plan! Mines not going too badly thanks, just plodding through it and trying to make sense of it all I'm just praying RM isn't too tricky cause I haven't looked over that much :/

    No they can be specific and ask about explanations for initiation/maintenance/relapse and ask for specific addiction types like smoking and gambling . I've seen it on a few past papers; have a look through AQA's website.

    Is anyone just not revising classification and diagnosis of schizophrenia? I know I should look at it a little bit but I'm really tempted to just ignore it :/ But then knowing my luck it'll come up!

    I'm joining you all as PSYA3 is finally out of my life. I'm feeling much better about this one even though I've left revision horrendously late.
