    I was told writing about infidelity, jealousy, acquisition of status and cuckoldry counted as multiple explanations, but you may be right. These are the ones we were taught to include in an infidelity/jealousy essay, anyway.
    Yeah same here, and I could be right but I could also be wrong, it really depends on what AQA want when marking it, but I have a feeling they'll be mean and count it as one explanation since sexual jealousy derives from infidelity and they're quite linked - I myself count it as one theory because the two parts go together. Guess it's up to AQA!

    for the evolutionary explanations of aggression essay i wrote about infidelity and jealousy and referenced cuckoldry, uxoricide etc, however some people are saying you need to write about this AND group displays as it said explanationS? can someone confirm this as now im starting to panic! can i only get a maximum of half marks??!
    No what you wrote is fine I did what you did too. This question has come up quite a few years back and this is what the mark scheme said... So basically you can chose and write whatever you want and get full marks Name:  image.png

    I don't think you will get half marks as long as you explained it thoroughly. It would usually say something like 'including sports and warefare' so idk :/ I just wrote about infidelity and cuckoldry so you're not alone lol

    pretty sure it didnt say that. if it did that would mean max 2 A02 points for each explanation, since it was only a 20 marker which is stupid.
    But it did say that, so....

    Ask anyone, it specifically said "explanations", not "explanation". Also that isn't stupid since the evaluation bit of the marks, 16 marks, stays the same and a02 is evaluation. The only part of the question that was reduced in marks was the a01 theory, because it was 4 marks, not 8 due to the 4 marker before. Therefore there is a very good chance I am right.

    Guys iforgot the definition of infidelity, so i literally put its when you have sexual intercourse with someone, who isnt your mate. would this be ok?
    One definition is: The action or state of being unfaithful to a spouse or other sexual partner.
    By mate, if you mean partner and not friend (:P) then what you said is fine I'd think.

    I saw that message too. I've found that January 2011 PSYA3 had the same question:
    "Discuss evolutionary explanations of human aggression"
    Here's the markscheme for it.
    The focus is on this sentence:
    "Material onaggressive displays, especially in young men, aggression linked to sexual jealousy, andevolutionary explanations of group display, could all be relevant to the question"

    'Could' it's only listing possible material that examiners should keep an eye out for.
    From this I think you're fine.

    You need to write about both because the questions said "discuss explanation(s)" indicating they wanted more than 1 explanation written about. If you wrote about 2 different types of group display, war and sport, then that's two explanations which is fine but I think if you just wrote about sexual jealousy and infidelity that will count as only 1 explanation and you'd get half marks.
    For group displays there's three explanations in total though... Xenophobia/territoriality and warfare so that's more than one explanation Einstein.

    June 2012 the question that came up was:
    "Discuss psychological research into media influences on pro-social behaviour (4+6)"
    So yeap.
    FYI 2013 Jan was
    "Discuss one or more explanations of media influence on pro-social behaviour (4+6)"
    That's theory :P
    Thank you

    The examiners are more fond of depth than breadth, the chances of them wanting us to refer to two explanations for 4 marks I.e. 2 marks per explanation is highly unlikely. Also 'explanations' has been used on many past exam papers, and they've always been fine with just 1, I think they're just trying to give people a lot of choice in what they write

    People saying you need to mention infidelity, jealously and also talk about group displays such as warfare for aggression are wrong cos the question was split 4+16 hence 4 marks for ao1 and talking about infidelity and jealously should have been sufficient with a lot of evaluation!
