    Oh yeah, how much research methods are we supposed to do ?
    There is no research methods in PSYA2 however last year if you noticed they snuck some in at the start of the paper. I'd suggest brushing up on RM, but not too in depth. I feel if anything research methods will be again included in stress or social influence this time round.

    What is the stem?


    You are just about to cross the road when a car comes speeding round the corner andnarrowly misses you. Afterwards, standing safely on the pavement, you notice thatyour mouth is very dry, your breathing is very fast and your heart is thumping. Using your knowledge of the body’s response to stress, explain why you are likely tohave experienced these changes. ................................ ................................ ................................ ................................

    Question 1AO2 = 4 marks Analysis of unfamiliar situation and application of knowledge ofbody’s response to stress.The STEM refers to the body responding to a short-term stressor, the release of adrenaline isresponsible for increased heart rate and faster breathing and the dry mouth is linked to thedigestive system “shutting down”. Students can refer to the pituitary adrenal system and/orthe sympathomedullary pathway. They can also refer to the fight-or-flight response. For fullmarks there must be explicit engagement with the STEM.4 marks Effective analysis of unfamiliar situationEffective explanation that demonstrates sound knowledge of the body‟s response tostress.

    STEM is the little paragraph they give you, if you're given a STEM you must relate back to it or use examples from the STEM.

    Anytime you're given a STEM you must use it.
    Also try to use the key words in the question in your answer.

    Be positive! Go into the exam giving it your best but also believe that you can tackle each question no matter how hard or easy, and know you'll give it 100%, if you go into the exam feeling all negative you'll throw yourself off the game.

    I'm feeling okay about it, fingers crossed the 12 marker is about stress. I think I can only get better than last time, I went into the exam feeling negative, uneasy, unconfident and gained a E. So time to turn that E into at least a C.
