    my teacher said that she PREDICTS individual differences will come up.. but i want developmental to and i definatly don't want a perspective to come up cos i'd be screwed lol... might go and learn them now!

    do you think its a good idea to see what came up in the exams last year and not learn what came up cos it probs won't come up in the exam tomorrow?

    I have a feeling section B will be psychodynamic or behaviourist
    then one on observation or self -report ..just a hunch!

    Quick question;
    In section A, are we likely to get asked to write a procedure for either an observation, a self-report (questionnaire/interview) or a case study method...?
    If so, what kind of things would you write? :confused:

    I only know how to write one for an experiment or correlational research...

    So there is little chance Behaviourist is coming up!?! :O I really wanted that!!!

    My teachers have predicted a high chance a debate is going to come up.

    Are other people leaving the social and cognitive approach, as they have already been on? I have not revised them as much as the other approaches, debates, issues and methods.

    thought i did crap in section A cos i didn't know what to include!
    section B was a lot better cos of the developmental approach but kinda felt like i was repeating myself.. so overall i'm unsure! how did you find it ?

    The second question was strange, we just revised correlations and experiments..so did you have to include all the stuff you would normally for an experiment? Like independent and dependent variable, and controls and stuff :/
    or just describe what your questionnaire is and who the sample would be, how you'd collect results etc...
    so confused.

    I found Section A quite hard at first, but then i got the hang of it and Section B was just playing mean with the developmental approach as it was my weakest approach.

    I had to leave out 26 marks at the end of the exam and i had a computer and 25% extra time for the paper.
