    I think for the multiple choice question about the Romanian Orphans, it wasn't the choice about it being unethical because it's about separation. Rutter didn't separate them, he just took advantage of the situation so I think that was a trick option.

    The question was regarding the Working Memory Model.
    Im pretty sure it was multi store memory too? Could be wrong though

    Trust me there was a four marker on the multi memory as well as a working memory one, they were both worded very similarly

    Imo and as other people seem to have already mentioned for me it was the actual understanding of the question and what to write that was the hardest part that most people seem to have done Baddely on. The actual answers themselves weren't too difficult
    Agreed, overall, I think this paper was quite decent and not too harsh. I was really scared about the attachment section and ADDIDDAS, Recprocity, etc etc. Thank God that stuff didn't come up and it only revolved around Mary Ainsworth

    Did anyone notice the fact that there were two research methods questions in the paper? I feel like they shouldn't have been there as they weren't relevent to social influence they were purely research methods questions?
    The specification paper does outline research methods is also in Paper 1 along with maths.

    Variations, I put nature of the task so how hard it was and when the participant had a friend with them like a confederate that was saying the correct answers
    Yep thats correct!! Task difficulty and unanimity- did you say any statistics?

    Did anybody else mess up the 6 marker on LTM? I reread the question too many times and changed my answer to link all the types of LTM to one example!! So annoyed!
    This was very easy. The three types were Procedural, Episodic and Semantic.

    Annie was Procedure
    Gab was Episodic
    and the last guy or girl was Semantic. 6 words 6 marks.

    Flexibility- show compromise e.g. Say they could go to the beach whilst travelling

    Consistency- not changing his mind, repeatedly talking about going travellinh

    Commitment- giving his friends an ultimatum e.g. He won't join them in the holiday unless they go travelling

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

    Yes i've just remembered! Sorry! Ye for the 4 Marker the wording was "Outline what psychological research has found about the short term memory with regards to the MSM" So i just talked about coding capacity and duration and briefly mentioned baddeley

    I wrote about diachronic synchrony when talking about consistency with marcus, will i lose marks?
    I think you may have got the term mixed up; the two types of consistency are diachronic consistency and synchronic consistency. However, you'd only lose 2 (or possibly even just 1 if you explained it correctly) out of the 6 marks so don't worry

    Incorrect, for simply stating the name and the type you'd get a MAX of 3. You need to explain why each person shows they're using that type of LTM for the other 3 .

    Hmm not too sure about snowball effect :/ augmentation principle probably will and deeper processing does make sense so i wouldnt worry too much if i were you

    For the first question (Marcus one) I put the behaviors as being consistency, persuasiveness and confidence - would these be right?
