    Would i lose marks for not referring to the conversation on the 12 mark question??
    I think you'd lose application marks.

    The problem with AQA... and i hope im not being bias.... they ARE TO VAGUE WITH THE DAM Q'S...... honestly they say learning theories for the 6 marker and i didn't think it was talking about social learning theory...i thought that was a complete different sub area. i only talk about cc and op.... honestly i hope im not alone in this.....

    If you thoroughly explained it, I guess so.
    It's difficult getting the full marks with just one point though.

    Question four (genotypes & phenotypes explaining the data) was the only one I got caught up on
    Think I answered it well but it stumped me for a full five minutes and meant I finished way later than i usually do 😖 this exam kinda threw me, but it was still easy imo

    I don't think they are too vague and Learning theories = CC, OPC and SLT

    im not sure... mark scheme says says that you can mention operate cond, but i beilieve all you had to do was mention cc, as it never mentions of her trying to avoid the lift, only that she can't use it anymore

    65078941[/url]]Those were some really mean questions, especially that 12 marker jesus christ, there's only so much I can write about genetics and the neural explanation for OCD, I found some of the questions quite hard but hopefully I've still got an A
    For the OCD 12 marker if you you didn't refer to the conversation would you still be able to get good marks? And how many?

    Limitation?
    Yeah, aren't schemas a limitation here because they can cause inaccurate recall of events for eye witness testimonies?
    oh gosh, i don't even know anymore

    Referring to the stimulus is crucial, however with a good description and evaluation of everything else you should only be looking at dropping around 2-4 marks so don't worry too much about it. With the predicted grade boundaries you're able to drop around 15 marks and still get an A, even if you were to get 0 on the essay questions you could still scrape and A
    You'll be fine!

    Do you guys think that grade boundaries will actually be as low as 50 for an A? & does anyone remember what the predicted grade boundaries were for paper 1?
