    Was it just me or was the exam very biological approach heavy, and lacking in psychodynamic approach besides Little Hans. I now fear that I misread a question somewhere.

    I mucked it up royally especially the key issue (which I hope was biological i know fear was a different approach), and 12 marker which was my downfall last year! I don't think any of retakes went overly well

    the biological approach was heavy! i felt like they missed out a lot of spec points -.-
    and yes the key issue was based on the biological approach .. yet again

    Ok few so I didn't just misread all of the questions!

    in short i wrote The black around the horses mouth = his father's mustache. And the stuff around the horses eyes was symbolic of his father's glasses?

    What did you put for the last one? I must have misread the question but I thought it asked for the type of reinforcement for the mother

    The question was asking why her daughter copies her the mother I think

    I got the last one completely wrong although i think the right answer was Motivation from what ive heard, so you got that correct - they may also accept model as an answer instead of role model so I think you should be fine

    I hope so I thought I'd got 70-ish marks but now I'm worrying.
    What did you put for the multi choice questions (bandura and the Freud one) I put phallic stage and range of ages even though they were only 3-5 but I didn't see it being any of the others

    Could somebody please reassure me I tend to struggle on the simple questions.

    Multiple choice: I chose latency and for the laterisation question I chosen it is on the right for boys for spatial tasks
    Gapped questions: I put role model, same sex (female), vicarious reinforcement and motivation.

    What did everyone put for the first two questions which where about the littering in the street?

    Your gapped answers seem perfect, although it was phallic stage and not latency.

    for lateralisation, spatial tasks located on the right for the boys is correct

    It was something like;
    They were familiar with the bobo doll (I read that they didn't know what it was on a precious mark scheme)
    Behaviour was decided before the results or something like that
    Range of ages used

    Don't remember the 4th option, I'm so annoyed I misread the vicarious reinforcement question. I liked the fact is was biological heavy though. Hopefully I did well on the evaluation of money too. What did you in the exam last year? I got a B, hoping for an a

    Yes, median was 4, you had to rearrange the numbers from lowest to highest and then find the median

    For Banduras study i put they had decided behaviour before the procedure or something because they had inter-rater reliability, and they were looking for things such as kicking, punching swearing etc

    I got a B last year as well and I messed up the last bit on the Vicarious reinforcement question and also what did you put for operant conditioning dog question?
