    Yes not too flexabile beacuse that will lead to inconsistency however some felxabilty is needed
    flexibility references willingness to compromise (beach holiday during travelling)

    for the strange situation question did we have to discuss the steps like how mother leave and comes and so stranger or can we just outline that it is obsevation and what was she measuring? Also for the question about stm in msm do u get marks if you spoke about unitary store
    No you wouldn't go into full detail on each of the 8 episodes, simply saying there were 8 episodes for example, the mother and the baby were alone and the baby was encouraged to explore.

    And i don't believe there was a questions regarding the MSM if you mean the WMM then NO as the whole point of the Working model is to illustrate that the STM IS NOT A UNITARY STORE!

    For the question about LTM: I am sure it had the word ‘one’ in bold... made me think we needed to chose one person to fit all 3 examples of LTM.
    Anyone else get confused over the word 'one' in bold?

    I put augmentation principle, snowball effect and deeper processing for the 3 behaviours! Do you think this would count?

    There was a question asking what psychological research had found out about the stm with reference to the multi store model

    Unethical - Psychology harm in the form of distress and the babies were RECORDED via cameras without their personal consent.

    Emic Construct - Built on Western ideas regarding what's secure and insecure behaviours (In the exam i used Japan as an example stating that it's normal for their culture to take their child everywhere therefore in Japan this would be secure behaviour)

    One that i forgot was that it lacks ecological validity as the environment was a controlled setting.

    + reliable
    - cultural bias
    - not ecologically valid
    - stressful for the baby BUT no more stressful than everyday life (eg leaving with a babysitter)

    For the memory one I put about all the components and how the CE has been proven by braver's brain scan study and how the PL and VSSP have been proven by shallice and Warrington K.F study.
    Yeah for the memory one I wabout
    Social influence was easy I think the strange situation was a nice 12 marker
    Yeah for the memory one I worried about pl with baddeley tomophosn and Buchanan and then evaluated that study
    For vss baddeley et al
    Evaluated that and talked about inner scribe and visual cache

    The question was regarding the Working Memory Model.

    I found this paper really decent. I scored 4 marks by writing 4 words for the animal study questions. Easiest 4 marks in my life. Along with the first question, 3 words, 3 marks. Easiest 7 marks of my life!!!

    The last question was v. nice. The working memory was an okay one. I spoke about how Baddley and Hitch conducted an experiment to prove that the fact you can multitask, it proves that STM has more than one store etc etc.

    Based on other past papers and the fact that its the first paper for our new spec... 54/72 for an A and a B grade could be as low as 46/72
    Incorrect, paper 1, grade boundaries go down by 4 marks. 54 A, 50 B, etc etc.

    Seeing mention of Romanian Orphange and I've completed forgotten the question about it. Anyone remember it?
    It was like pick the 2 evalative points
    I picked a - it used a control group
    B - but there are few case studies of it
