    A* - 51/60

    A - 47/60

    Just a prediction.

    Also, the 12 marker which you're arguing about 'Compare SLT with an alternate explanation' wasn't asking you to simply describe another theory and relate it to Nicole, you had to actually compare the nuances of each theory pertaining to similarities/differences; though I'm sure that by describing an alternate theory your comparison to SLT is probably implicit.

    Best of luck for Unit 4 all.

    I think that's a bit high tbh because last year's paper was nice and for an A* you need 47/60- but you never know

    Yeah I think it might go up a mark or two but not that much

    Don't bother lol. It's marked subjeçtively using the mark scheme as a guide, not worth getting your hopes up/panicing

    Even if you have referenced the second explanation of criminal behaviour to Nicole's criminal behaviour it's still difficult to mark you down because you have still compared it to the SLT regardless, but just in context with the scenario (if it was suppose to be a general comparison I believe they would still give you marks as they will take account of your knowledge provided). If anything they would most likely also account the scenario link as examples to the explanation, so I think no one should worry as long as they described both explanations and referred to Nicole atleast once.

    Revision? Nothing yet lol but I'll be revising it all week alongside Human Biology. To be fair I find most of clinical pretty simple, and issues and debates is usually fine, so if anything I need to work on timing because there's just not enough time

    My teacher thinks ethnocentrism will be an 18 marker as it's the only debate that hasn't come up yet. Also expect questions on the clinical practical and key issue, likely to be a 12 marker

    I agree with these predictions, the exam was far easier than previous years. Despite the boundary never exceeding 50 for an A*, I believe this year it will.

    With regards to the 12 marker, I definitely believe that merely saying 'social learning theory explains Nicole's behaviour as XYZ' conversely, SFP explains Nicole's behaviour as XYZ will suffice

    Schizophrenia was a large part of the exam last year so we can probably expect our chosen disorder to be a large part this year (I think it'll be a cognitive explanation of depression for those of you who chose depression), Rosenhan maybe, I doubt cognitive therapy will come up - it was the essay last year so another therapy from a different approach! I also think (or maybe it's wishful thinking) that contributions will come up as one of the 18 markers, as well as probably ethnocentrism!

    You sure?

    So for example, imagine we get in the exam on Tuesday and one of the questions is "Compare the biological explanation for schizophrenia with one other (6)". I write something like: The dopamine hypothesis explains schizophrenia as being caused by over-activity at synapses in the brain that are sensitive to dopamine. The social causation hypothesis suggests that the cause of schizophrenia is living in highly urbanised, densely populated areas of low economic status.

    How many marks would I get? None, because I've describe two theories, I haven't made an explicit comparison. If it wanted two theories described plainly, it would ask for it.

    I don't want to make anyone panic or say that I know what the mark scheme will look like, but I do know that in a comparison question you have to actually make comparisons rather than just stating how the explanations differ.
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Let's take the 2011 Clinical 12 marker as an example:
    Describe one explanation for schizophrenia and compare this with one other explanation. Comparisons include considering similarities and/or differences.(12)

    Change "schizophrenia" to "criminal/anti-social behaviour" and this is almost identical to our question.

    For this question, if you described dopamine hypothesis then described social causation hypothesis, you'd get 4-6 marks (Either description done very well and little/no comparisons OR vice versa OR both done but limited)

    To get 7-9 marks you need:
    Candidates' answers will show good knowledge with understanding of the focus of the question and will include some explicit comparisons. • Explanation done well • Both similarities and differences are likely to be attempted, with at least one comparison elaborated. Some use of evidence

    Those are the rest that I have saved..

    For the second disorder we did Phobias, so the two explanations are Learning (classical conditioning then operant conditioning) and Psychodynamic (repression then displacement), and the two treatments are Learning (systematic desensitisation) and Psychodynamic (psychoanalysis). The study into phobias we looked at was Cook and Mineka.

    I doubt anyone else did Phobias though

    Our invigilator said at the end to make sure you tick the boxes because if not there stands a chance you won't get marked for that section

    But don't worry, as long as you've only answered questions in 2 sections then they'll be marked. Au cas où you don't, just appeal
