    That's pretty unfortunate But I knew it all which is why I'm beating myself up about it, I knew I should've explained the Episodic Buffer but as I was about to I ran out of time 🙄
    I thought it was on the WMM, but the wording stumped me so I went and did the attachment section, came back to the 12 marker with 30 minutes left, and thought if it was on the WMM they would have put "discuss the WMM"
    What's done is done and there's nothing I can do now though, I've been through the unofficial mark scheme many times and think I got about 52-56 so here's hoping I'm right and the grade boundaries are low haha

    Its 12 marks so they wouldnt expect you to only outline for 12 marks. 6 marks outline 6 marks evaluate.

    Either 2 really well elaborated evaluation points or 3 less well elaborated ones.

    We have been taught the "discuss" means the same as outline and evaluate so 6 marks for outline and 6 for evaluate but I don't know due to how the question was worded

    Discuss means outline and evaluate. The extra stuff was there to guide you.

    For example the SS one was about how it is used to asses attachment types (criteria for attachment types, observation etc.)

    Yes you will get marks because you stated the three types of LTMs and explained them.

    If you explained all three LTMs in full detail then you will get the marks.

    I believe it was 6 marks? Hopefully around 3 marks.
    Yeah I explained them in detail.
    Hopefully I get some marks for that

    No credible marks. Strange Situation was Mary Ainsworth.
    The cross cultural variations are credible evaluation points as it shows that Strange Situation only applies to US western culture

    I know that I at least got 4 marks out of 72 purely from writing "Harlow and his monkeys" and "Lorenz and his geese"!
