    Thats cutting it too fine be careful, especially if a 10 marker or 6 marker comes up for research methods or it has a complicated stem. I think 40 minutes would be sensible and you might not even need that much anyway

    Guys how important is spelling and grammer for unit 3, I dont want to keep banging on about it, but I was writing so fast, I think i made tons of grammer mistakes etc?
    I think SPAG marks are like 5 marks max and its gotta be pretty bad for them to deduct all 5

    I actually like this topic since I prefer short application questions than 24 mark essays.

    Hey Guys,
    For my psya3 exam i used this website to plan and structure my essays:
    http://a2psychologyunit3.blogspot.co.uk/ bc i found the whole loopa model answers a bit too much to fully understand. I'm doing Media and Schizophrenia and ofc research methods and was wondering if anyone knew of any places with model answers besides loopa?

    Also, considering media is broken up into smaller questions how do you reckon i should go about revising it bc im planning to just go over schiz as if each topic was a 24 marker???

    THANKS

    Same for PSYA3 for schizophrenia and media I have no idea cause they're little questions probably flash cards 💁
    Schizophrenia can be 24 marks (not a little question).
    Media there are usually two 10 markers and one 4 mark.

    For schizophrenia, do you think we need to know a number of psychological explanations (e.g. behavioural, cognitive, and socio-cultural factors) or just one?

    Are you guys still doing the 24 markers for PSYA4 in 30 mins? I might give myself 35 or 40 minutes for each one tbh
    I get extra time because I have anxiety so spending an hour on each and 30 mins on research methods.

    at least two
    There are different explanations even within each overarching explanation...
    So for socio-cultural there are life events, family relationships, and the labelling theory. So would I still need both socio-cultural and cognitive?

    In media....
    Would we only get a 10-marker for just application questions? Also do we need to include studies in the application Q?

    Am I right in saying 4 marks is only ever AO1?

    And 4+6 is AO1 + A02/3 (use 3 studies? Is that okay? :/ )

    Someone let me know if I'm right pls??
