    I wonder too! I put drawing attention, consistency and snowball effect.
    All I can see is people saying consistency, commitment and flexibility which makes sense but altogether it's worth 6 marks so I'm really concerned

    I put augmentation principle, snowball effect and deeper processing for the 3 behaviours! Do you think this would count?
    I do not think it would count because it was referring to the actual behaviours of consistency, commitment and flexibility rather than explaining how minority influenced works. However, who knows that the mark scheme will include

    what did everyone put in the multiple choice for romanian studies, i put the compare control and long term/ short term, is those 2 right ???!
    I put that too but after having looked at my textbook, i don't think the one about long term effects is correct because one of the limitations it says is "long-term effects are not yet clear". Sigh.

    I agree with you. I don't think marks would be awarded for it, however what I like about AQA is that at the bottom of most question it says

    "Give credit for any other relevant information"

    Got to love AQA

    Hey which one was the 8 marker? I agree with the WMM question. I put about how clive wearing showed there were different types of ltm and therefore the wmm was right and the msm was wrong also each componant functions and dual task performance. The strange situation was good but some of the questions were just so wierd like the animal studies one, not what I expected at all, and the research methods plopped in the middle of social like that was a stroke of pure evil

    Does anyone have any rough estimations on grade boundaries?
    Is it right to think around 80% for an A?

    However, they tend to be quite picky as to what counts as relevant information. How did you find the paper?

    the 12 marker question for attachment was something like "discuss the strange situation in assessing attachment types"
    did we have to outline it in detail? or is it mainly evaluation ??
    . I was also very confused by this. I outlined and evaluated just to have all basis covered but they do word the questions really really baddeley (lol)

    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.
    I agree with Anna
    I re read the question so many times yet put all the three types of LTM to one person - Annie
    I made a stupid mistake

    The question was stupid it could have been much clearer!

    I actually found it really decent. I went into college quite early and revised my ass off for the last 4 hours. I probably got myself an A or a B, however the thing is, the first paper, grade boundaries are divided by 4 marks. Literally fking up one 12 mark answer, that's the difference between three grade boundaries.

    What about you? How did you do ?

    That should be 4/6 marks. Which is not bad, only 2 marks dropped.
