    Hiyaa, my teachers haven't really taught us how to compare two studies yet (in 12 markers and such). I was wondering if any of you could help?


    I'm not aware of any questions that would require you to compare. You usually just need to explain 2 studies to support a key term. The only time you would be asked to compare is in Year 13 when you're talking about approaches.

    EG: Describe and evaluate two studies of social influence. [12]

    Describe is AO1. Evaluate is AO3 Studies can be Asch, Milgram, Zimbardo.

    Each study is split into 6 marks - 3 for AO1 and 3 for AO3

    3 marks describing the method and findings of Asch.
    3 mark describing the evaluation points of Asch.

    3 marks describing Milgram's method and findings.
    3 mark describing the evaluation points of Milgram.
