    Does anyone have any predictions on what could come up as the 12 marker for unit one?
    Also, is two days enough to learn all of unit one? I pretty much know cognitive psychology, just need to do developmental this weekend. Also, how much have people revised for research methods, is there a point revising it?

    I'm in the same position as you and i have economics on monday too. If you manage to g through most of it and do at least 2 past papers today i'm sure you can get an A in the exam. An A is around 70-5% so it shouldn't be too hard

    Yeah should be fine, a 12 marker has never come up on memory improvement (arguably there isn't enough material on it) so its a small topic tbh, maximum of 6 marls

    Fisher et al trained detectives in miami to use cognitive interview, he compared results between cognitive interviews and normal interviews by the officers and found the cognitive interview was more accurate as people remember more however officers found the cognitive interview look a long amount of time. One other disadvantage is that the cognitive interview is difficult with children. This is because when gieselmen et al did it with children they struggled to understand what he meant. Therefore it cannot be used on everyone. This is all I have

    can someone outline bowlbys theory that would get 6/6 please for a01
    In order to outline this I would definitely try remembering 6 very important words:

    1) Innate
    2) Sensitive period
    3) Social releasers
    4) Secure base
    5) Monotropy
    6) Internal working model/continuity hypothesis

    Elaborate on these for A01 and you're guaranteed the marks!

    40% increase in the amount if information witnesses provided
    90% of information which could be verified was accurate
    Changed perspective leads to speculation

    A good way to remember it is to use the acronym ascmi so adaptive social releasers etc and really simple brief sentences for each one should bag full 6 marks

    If a 12 mark question comes up on daycare do you think if I write about the positive and negative effects of social development and then just back those points up with studies would that work to get close to 12 marks? I mean if there is enough detail that is? What do you think?

    Id represents selfish desires and pleasure while the Super Ego makes us question our decisions and makes us feel guilt. The ego tries to balance the two. Freud basically says that abnormality occurs due to unconscious conflict.

    Abnormality can occur because of the ego of a person being too weak to balance out the Id and Super Ego. If the Id is dominant then a person may engage in immoral behaviour and have an anti social disorder. If the Super Ego is dominant one may have an anxiety or phobia.

    Abnormality can also occur because of repressed memories or childhood conflicts which re-emerge later in life. Some events can be too painful for a child to handle and so a child may repress this memory. This could surface again if a person is reminded about the event or triggered and it could lead to depression.

    Another way abnormality can occur is through the over use of defence mechanisms such as denial. Use of defence mechanisms are normal but if they are overused they can cause abnormality as it's not normal to constantly avoid issues.

    I'm just writing this off the top of my head so I've probably missed out some stuff, might want to check with others to confirm.
