    I thought the paper went really well until I got out of the exam and realised that u mixed up the multi store memory model with the working memory model so I've just lost 18 marks! Such a let down after getting an A in my mock 😭

    it must've been about wmm though because that's the only aspect of working memory there is in the memory module? like what else could you have possibly talked about?

    Also I think you are right on the working model.
    surely there isn't really anything else you can write about working memory

    So for the strange situation is it still 6 aol 6 ao3 so 6 for procedure and findings and 6 for 2 developed evaluation points?

    did you have to write about the findings? i just wrote that in other cultures behaviours could be interpreted differently? i remember learning about how germany saw a high degree of exploration and not much of a secure base as a good thing because it showed independence, but i have nO idea what i was on about tbh

    I put about WMM and Baddeley in the 12 marker if it isn't that then what on earth could it be? Thought the Rutter MCQ was dire I nearly collapsed as I couldn't decide which one. What did you guys put about self report?
    i think i out something about how the participants fill our the data themselves which is then collected by the researcher but i doubt that's gotten me many marks...

    It may have. Self report is interviews and questionnaires, and I believe you had to describe both.

    Is the bandura bobo doll study a key study to learn for paper 2 or do we just have to know social learning theory in general?

    Yep. Bandura is a key study that you need to know. It's on the spec.

    All the studies you need for paper 2 are Wundt, Skinner, Pavlov, Bandura, Beck and Ellis.

    So basically, what he did was train his participants to analyse their own feelings. To say what they were thinking about, how they were thinking about it, why etc. He'd show them an an object and they'd record their feelings.

    The method was crap, to put it bluntly. Very subjective, and had a lot of issues with validity. Not replicable at all, but it opened the door for more psychology studies to come, and established it as an actual science

    i thought the working memory one was awful! i wrote about the working memory model in the tiniest amount of detail. for the self-report one im sure that is self-report techniques like interviews and questionnaires? i just wrote a method of how to basically carry out an investigation! 100% wrong
