    a quick question guys
    when doing a 12 marker on cultural variations, for A02 can you state cultural similarities (eg fox, tronick et al, ainsworths Uganda study) to contradict your A01 of cultural variations??

    also has a 12 marker ever come up for disruption of attachment? because I cant find it on any papers. if so what would you state?

    and im confused for a question on institutional care i know you state hodges and tizard, rutter etc. but the june 2014 mark scheme has stated the pdd model by Robertson would be relevant. im so confused??

    thanks guys

    A essay has never come up on distruption, it has always been a 4-8 mark question. If you were to do disruption, you would use the study conducted by the Robertsons who did a case study on John and who went through Protest, Despair and Deatchment. You would then talk about the study in AO2 and the evaluation of a case study.

    And DO NOT write about The Robertsons when looking at institutionalisation- ALWAYS talk about Tizard and Hogrs.

    For cultural variations, I spoke about no studies but the meta analysis itself and the sample sizes, population validity, reliabilty ect.

    What is the snowball effect?! It's not in my text book and my teacher has not taught it??
    Where a minority form a majority- it starts off small and then progressively enlarges.

    also talk about the current zeitgeist - the most current trend e.g recycling

    Any predictions for PSYA1 questions? I've read the loopa ones. I was wondering if any of your teachers or you guys had any predictions?
    Anything and everything! The essay question could be very broad, I know daycare has never come up before!

    Is it possible to retake AS psychology next year when there is a new specification?
    You can retake but if you do you'll have to follow the new spec and do both the AS and A2 in the second year, so you'd have to retake a year I think. Because you wont be able to do the AS exam in the first year, so you can't leave with an AS grade anymore.

    I think you can still resit the spec we are doing know, as AQA are offering it in their 2016 provisional exam timetable.

    I was told that the spec will pretty much remain the same but that if we want to retake we wont be able to leave with an AS as its over a two year period? If I've been misinformed please do elaborate :P

    On the 2016 provisional timetable (attached) it has Psychology 1 and 2 and also the new paper. So i presume that it means AQA are providing both the papers.

    So for a question with 12 marks about disruption of attachment would you outline he PDD model for 6 marks a01 then evaluate it and use robertsons videos of john as supporting evidence?

    I had a look at the patterns for the Unit 1 12 marks qs. Last paper was memory, 3 papers before that the 12 marks qs were on attachment, the 3 papers before that were memory. So I am guessing this year's 12 marker will be on memory again. My gut is saying Multi-Store model. Anyone else agree?

    There was a 12 marker on the effects of institutional care in 2010 so it would be unlikely that that will come up again

    I'm not sure if this is right for disruption of attachment as it's more on privation, but because I haven't done much revision I would just use the case study of Genie and Kolochuva's study of the Czech Twins?

    If that's wrong, please correct me lol
    Nonononono. Use these for privation (failure to form attachment). Use Little John and Bowlby's 44 thieves for deprivation.

    So you would say:

    The Robertsons studied several infants who had to go into a nursery for a short stay while their mothers went into hospital to have a child. They collected data through observations with a 16mm camera. They conducted serval case studies, in particular a young child, John who remained in a residential nursery for nine days whilst his mother went into hospital to have a child. He went from a well-adjusted child to one who was rejecting upon renunion of his caregiver. John became increasingly upset and cried when he first got there. He attempt to form an attachment with another nurse, this stage was known as protest. John then began to despair- his appetite diminished and he became increasingly withdrawn, he began to seek comfort in objects instead of people. Upon renunion of his mother, John was rejecting and underwent detachment- it took several months for John to return his relationship to normal.
