    Could they ask 'Outline and evaluate the biosocial approach to gender development including gender dysphoria'

    Which is how it's worded on the spec

    What would you talk about?
    The biosocial or gender dysphoria?

    Are you guys bothering learning what came up last year in depth? Because they've never put the same question 2 years in a row, is it worth disregarding those topics or...?

    In the neural and hormonal aggression essay, do you think when I'm talking about neurones it's okay to just talk about serotonin and forget about dopamine?

    Hey, what if I did 2 or 3 studies, methodological problems for all of them and then like 3 Idas. Would that still get me around 12+ out of 16? Basically what I'm getting at is sometimes it's easier to improvise Ida and methodology problems on the spot but studies are harder to remember so in the exam would they all be valued equally? Please let me know what you guys think

    Don't disregard it completely- just put high levels of dopamine are associated with aggressive behaviours.

    Yes that is a lot but you have to remember there is a depth vs breadth trade off and examiners are made aware of this all the time. So using 6 brief studies can get you exactly the same marks as 3 detailed studies (not exactly the ratio btw just an example) Either way you must link back to the question regardless
    Okay good, the studies I use are generally detailed so hopefully I can get away with 3

    Yeah that sounds fine as long as you do the 2 or 3 studies in a fair amount of detail, and I wouldn't think you'd ever really need more than 2 IDA points, instead just do some general wider evaluation like practical applications or something

    Anyone else having trouble writing the essays in times conditions? I just wrote a breakdown of relationships essays in 33 minutes - 3 mins over how long it should take and my hand kills! I was writing so fast and my writing was so messy. I have no idea how I'm going to write 3 essays in time conditions tomorrow..

    By 'detail' how much exactly do you mean? And even if we do more Ida it still counts as normal evaluation right?
