    Augmentation principle is basically sacrificing for their view so it links in with commitment (you'll get the mark)
    Oh okay thanks

    Firstly, Yes it matters as anonymity is not knowing who said which answer unanimity is whether the group all agree. HE CHANGED THE UNANIMITY.

    And the first point you make is incorrect, in general yes that's an evaluation point however being replicable is a STRENGTH NOT A LIMITATION
    Hang on, there was a variation of his study where the participant wrote down their answer on a piece of paper (so there was no social pressure to conform) therefore he is anonymous so technically anonymity would be correct

    Sorry for the second part I wrote the answer for a different question, I should've written lacks ecological validity

    I'm so confused- did the question with the inequality sign and 6 want you to use the numbers less than 6 or greater than?
    I thought less than so I put the answer as 2.

    Well ISI explains why the conformity rates increased when the tasks were more difficult, so you wouldn't lose marks here. What did you say about NSI?

    are people certain of the romanian multiple choice answers? one being the comparison? I ticked the one about cause and effect because in the textbook it says a weakness of other orphan studies are extraneous variables, but it's not A weakness for the ERA... idk

    Thanks, basically I said that people in the group where there was another dissenter in another variation conformed less because they were less scared of being disliked/not included and it gave them more confidence, but I'm stupid anyway lol

    Do people think grade boundaries will go up or down this year? Without the 12 marker on working memory i felt it was relatively straight forward.

    That is correct! If anything, this will gain you marks because you are adding extra detail.

    On the question about MSM do you think I will loose marks for not writing all the researches names e.g I spoke about Peterson s study but forgot to say that it's was petersons if that makes sense...:/

    My teacher told me kt didnt matter becuase examiners are pretty good at knowig what youre talking about after seeing a 100 odd papers, and the name isnt generally a mark on mark schemes so you should be fine

    Sigh in the 12 marker on WMM, I stupidly wrote about the MSM. Well you're welcome for bringing down the grade boundaries
