    I think someone else mentioned that BZs can be used for abnormality so potentially you can get more marks here too!
    Hopefully! Still aiming for an A overall though, I think I did well in PSYA1 and the rest of the PSYA2 paper, was just that one question so fingers crossed!

    I said Keiran and Tom! Is this wrong?
    Kieran is right! No idea about tom though, I didn't even realise there was a third boy! I think you'll still pick up marks on Kieran though as your explanation will still be relevant.

    If you wrote about BZ's and BB's you would have HAD to link this to psychopathology somehow directly clearly with excellent language.

    Would have been smarter to talk about anti-psychotics and anti-depressants as some markschemes have said ignore Bz's and BB's
    I explained how BZ's and BB's work inside the body and what effect they have, do you think this would be okay?

    On the difference between conformity and obedience, I simply just said what conformity was and what obedience was and said they were different types of social influence. Is this right?

    C - it was a negative correlation showing that as the stress score increased their health score was lower (suggesting bad health).

    who the hell is tom?
    The question said something like 'Tom said he would only go if Kieran and Zach went', which I assume was put in by the exam board in order to confuse people who don't know what locus of control is defined by.

    Do aqa mark harshly?
    I've found that my teachers seem to mark really generously and most of these have marked the exams in the past so hopefully it will be kind! Most mark schemes are fairly vague for psychology and it is subjective to whether your marker believes your questions are worthy of points.

    I said Tom because people resist pressure to conform If they have social support. And it said something about Tom missing trials if the other two do so I said they're like a supportive figure for him?! Ffs that was some annoying paper aqa and their stupid tactics

    I reckon this is probably right, I didn't know the definitions for either so just put that the ways of resisting conformity and obedience are different. The question was fairly vague and just said 'A difference" so I think it could have been on lots of different things!

    These type of questions are normally vague in the Mark schemes so dont worry you can probably get away with saying anything.

    I wrote in compliance no one tells you to do anything, you just copy behaviour whereas in obedience someone tells you to do something and you do it.

    BZs and BBs are absolutely fine for question 12, both target extreme anxiety- a form of abnormality. Should have included anti depressants too, ect as well. If you covered ect well, short comings in drugs should be fine as long as AO2 is relevant

    I said that in conformity you usually conform because of more than one person whereas in obedience you usually obey to only one person. ??

    Hopefully! I wasn't too sure for that one so I just put that conformity is doing something because it's what other people are doing and obedience is doing something because someone told you to (or something along those lines) so hopefully that is alright...
