    Really obvious question but do you actually need 24 individual points to get 24 marks? Is the paper marked breadth over depth? My teacher has always told us to put 8 AO1 points, 8/9 studies, 3/4 IDA points (hence adding up to 24 marks). I always thought that was right until I read some of the responses here and now it just seems like overkill
    If you have a really detailed paragraph on one study, how many AO2 points would you get?

    Anyone else finding it hard to memorise everything??? So much content to remember I'm struggling with what to revise for eating behaviour and aggression
    For aggression focus on neural/hormonal mechanisms, genes, and evolutionary explanations (both group behaviour and infidelity/jealousy). These are most likely to come up.

    TBH examiners mark so many papers they can't be bothered to go adding up all your points. My teacher is an examiner and he mainly looks at how balanced and detailed an essay is, so some breadth mostly depth.

    I would write about sleep wake cycle and how its controlled endogenously and exogenously and the write about core body temp.

    Hi guys, can anyone tell me, if it asks about the role of classical/operant conditioning in the behaviour of non-human animals, is talking about training of wild animals prior to release (CC) and PRT techniques (OC) for AO1 correct?

    You can half all of those!
    Half that and that's literally a perf structure, if you have a really detailed para on one study for ao2 but just describing method you can get maybe 4 marks, if you evaluate the supporting study methodologically, ethically/practically, add an ida, comparisons (like really long it out)- you can get like 8 marks from one study !!

    I've studied half of media psychology but I don't have time to carry on till midday on Friday.

    I found some condensed notes online though so I should be fine, hopefully.

    I don't think so....sleep stages are the stages 1-4 and REM etc (outline)
    lifestyle changes are to do with age so you'd start with infants sleep for 16 hours on average etc
    functions of sleep are to do with restorative theories e.g. Oswald and Horne
    hope that helps!

    You can get full marks with just two studies, as long as you evaluate it all methodologically. I know I've gotten full marks on 24 markers with only two/three studies before but made up for it with methodological evaluation and IDA. It is a depth/breadth trade off so you can get full marks if the answer itself is balanced.
