    I got 169 UMS last year
    How well do I need to do to get an A* this year?

    320 -169 = 151UMS needed??

    Help please
    320 is an A. You need 151 at least to get the A grade. Then you need to fulfill the second criteria for an A* and that is to get 90% for both A2 units. Essentially you'll need to get 90 UMS in both papers this year.

    Omg a whole question? Was yours just essay based? I did gender, eating behaviours and relationships
    Yep he said he ran out of time, because he didnt revise that much i was looking around and saw SOOO many people just sitting there casually writing... In this exam theres literally no time some people were going to the toilet which is just bizzare.

    Yeh i had 3 essays but one was a 4 mark and 20 mark.

    The relationship was nice! What did you think to it?

    It was a broad question... You can talk about sexual infidelity and jealousy or group displays (or both!)
    A girl in my class said you had to write about two to get the marks? I just did infidelity so will I only get max 10?
    The studies I did were Daly and Wilson, Wilson, Shackleton, Buss and Shackleford,

    It was a 4 marker for AO1 marks, don't worry. I'm pretty sure of that since I just confirmed with a friend.



    Which theory? If I recall I talked about Reward/Need theory but argued it can double as a maintenance theory but I talked about other maintenance theories as well.
    Social exchange theory. But I still linked it to formation so idk

    I'm not sure about outlining the experiment since implications of findings (which is AO2 and so you don't really say it) is what proves deindividuation however an appropriate description for deindividuation theory itself would be enough for 4 marks.

    I would assume if it says "one or more" then just one would be fine?

    Could you get 80 ums and 100 ums in the other and average out a 90 or does it have to be 90 in both?

    I thought the aim, what they did and the findings were AO1, and then discussing implications of such findings on the question/theory was the AO2 part?

    Ahh, hmm, I'm not sure actually. I guess if it's a convincing enough argument sure! Getting SET right otherwise, like its principles you ought to be fine.
