    I put **** if I am honest I put that it was a person evaluating and talking about that she thought of the experience, and that there might be specific questions for the person to answer or she can go on and on about what she thought was correct, in this case, ethical. You?

    I put about WMM and Baddeley in the 12 marker if it isn't that then what on earth could it be? Thought the Rutter MCQ was dire I nearly collapsed as I couldn't decide which one. What did you guys put about self report?

    If forgot to talk about dual task performance for the WMM 12MQ, I only wrote about KF and how Baddeley explained that STM and LTM are separate. and wrote tons about Schaffer and Emerson for the last 12MQ only to realise with 5 minutes left that they didnt use the strange situation.I tried to save it by talking about Ijzendoorn and Kroonenberg, simonella and jin et al... but completely forgot about Ainsworth and didn't give statistics on attachment type.. oopsssss

    I'm so annoyed at myself I didn't mention any research for the internal working model question. A lot of the questions were so weirdly worded that I found it hard to answer them specifically ugh

    For Asch Question you were supposed to put the differences in variables affecting conformity, eg: Group size or if all of the group conformed, if they had knowledge.

    glad to see people put the working memory model. My friend says on the asch line study he saw that it claimed to ask for 2 limitations but I didn't see that at all. All I saw was two variations and findings. I put the findings eg 36.8 percent and 75 percent in context. And I referred to the variations. Did anyone else see limitations for this question

    I used Clive Wearing for the STM memory question.

    Do you think that will pass or not?

    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
    Lol I hope so...
    But the question stated MSM so I used what I learnt from my test book

    Tbh nobody knows how well they've done until results day

    On the unofficial markscheme it only talks about Mary Ainsworths strange situation study , however the question only asks about the procedure making me think that it was referring to the cultural variations and applications of the study such as Ijzendoorn 🤔🤔🤔am I the only one

    OCR's new spec was so easy. 12 marker was the best. 4 marker drawing a pie chart. Very easy multiple answer questions. Questions were overall a piece of cake.

    On the strange situation as evaluation point I wrote about missing the 4th type and cross-cultural differences such as China's secure would be seen as independent and stuff, do you reckon they are creditable points?

    I wrote about this as well but as an evaluation to the strange situation, I said that it was too western and therefore may not be applicable to other cultures (collectivist cultures).

    Annie and Germaine are definetely correct, so you'll get those marks but Billy would be semantic (declarative covers both episodic and semantic, so it's too general)
