    omg did u have to give specific studies? i thought it was asking just to state capacity duration and coding:'(
    that's exactly what i did! i was so happy that i remember the exact cosine capacity and duration and then realised i didn't put any studies sure it won't be too many marks - i hope anyway

    Just to clarify I don't think the LTM has anything to do with the WMM so actually KF is the only case study for the WMM I think

    No sorry, it said 'outline psychological research...', but i think youll get a couple marks stating capacity etc at least

    whoops, for the STM/MSM question I started writing about STM in terms of the MSM like attention, rehearsal, retrieval etc.

    I'm slightly confused as to what that question wanted as it just said outline was psychological research has found therefore putting the study's details may not have gained marks?
    I just put about coding acoustically (Included baddeley in this) Short duration 7+-2 and 18 - 30 seconds.

    Im sure that's worth 3/4

    Also you all seem to be forgetting AQA don't take marks away from you they are positive markers they will simply ignore wrong answers or information

    I put that STM is in a fragile state
    Info is used for immediate tasks
    Info can be displaced by new info
    Acoustic encoding
    Maintained rehearsal

    I guess I wrote everything wrong.

    the 12 marker question for attachment was something like "discuss the strange situation in assessing attachment types"
    did we have to outline it in detail? or is it mainly evaluation ??
    yeah i was thrown off by this question. many seem to have outlined it talking about procedure, results, conclusion . but all i wrote about was evaluations

    I didn't find this too hard a paper and wasn't particularly upset by anything. I wish one of the 12 markers was on Social Influence not, memory and that the RM questions were in memory or attachment and not taking up questions in my favourite topic. All the questions were ok but I agree that the WMM question was worded weirdly. Came feeling pretty happy with myself so hopefully that stands up on results day

    I did the procedure, the types of attachment, the results, and why it may not be the best (mothers change personality, and it was only in America until Van and Kronenberg did the meta analysys)

    to be honest, who even knows what they wanted? the wording was so confusing, i don't even think the examiners knew what they were asking
