    For the aggression unit and the evolutionary unit, how do you separate jealousy and infidelity? I'm struggling to see where the line is between them in some cases they are put together in the textbook/resources, and even how I have them laid out in my notes they look like basically the same thing. Under jealousy i have things like fear of cuckoldry and paternal uncertainty along with mate retention strategies, and under infidelity I have sexual coercion and violence and violence towards pregnant partners. There seems to be a lot of crossover there (e.g shouldn't fear of cuckoldry and violence towards pregnant partners be in the same category?). I just took what was in the only book that separates them (the dog book). Or should i just stick them together as some kind of 'sexual aggression' section like the other books seem to and forget about splitting them into infidelity and jealousy?

    On another note, it feels like I'm the only one who isn't revising this by writing essays; I've written about one for each unit which my teacher gives a mark of between 17 and 23. I prefer just learning from notes and flashcards so I understand the content/theories and can remember the relevant studies and what they fit with, along with relevant evaluation points i can use to depending on the type of question (e.g discuss, outline and evaluate, evaluate research into...) I haven't seen anyone else revising this way but since I don't like writing the essays I just haven't done it, and don't really plan too. I got an A last year without writing any essays in preparation and my teacher hasn't pushed it as a revision strategy so I was quite surprised to see everyone talking about it here.
    i differentiate infidelity and jealousy in a01 and then it doesn't matter so much if you combine them for a02. the way i distinguish is jealousy is an emotion (thus can be irrational) which can be caused by suspected infidelity, whereas infidelity is the action, which in evolutionary theory may cause cuckoldry.
    hope that makes sense!

    and yeah i have the exact same revision technique as you! im memorizing along the lines of essay plans with key info

    Jealousy --> sexual jealousy and mate retention strategies to prevent mate from straying, men get jealous as can fall victim to cuckoldry and have to invest resources in some other man's kid
    Infidelity --> violence or threats of violence if infidelity is suspected, beating woman sometimes in attempt of abortion so they don't have to raise a child from another man

    Yes it's a very thin line. But basically if you're talking about jealousy, talk about mate retention strategies, and for infidelity talk about actual physical violence.

    I did that last year because in AS there are a lot of questions so you need to revise all the content and flashcards and stuff makes more sense. But this year I feel like planning out essays is going over the topics again AND having a full essay at the end of it.

    Anyone else have handwriting issues? I can just about squeeze 4 sides in 30 mins (probs a minute over MAX) but its a matter of would I rather write the whole essay and leave the examiner bedazzled or write half of it with neat handwriting but potentially drop some marks
    i have the same issue :l but i would go with the writing the whole essay as examiners can usually work it out as theyre used to a wide range of handwriting bc they mark so many and also they're probably teachers anyways

    Yeah this has always been my mentality - they must mark a ton worse than this, so I should be good

    If I have time I'll go back and change any totally unreadable words
