    Hi guys, (talking addiction here) does anyone know if AQA can ask a specific question about biological or psychological interventions?

    For example - 'Outline/discuss agonists as a biological intervention for addictive behaviour.'
    OR
    will they just ask something like 'Outline/discuss one biological intervention for addictive behaviour'

    I'm trying to decide whether it's worth memorising both agonists and antagonists, and all the psychological treatments.

    Good luck to everyone!!

    Because they're testing your ability to be able to find the critical value.

    Or I guess maybe they might ask specifically for 10% or 15% significance value. Unlikely though.
    OK so just always assume they ask for 0.05 unless stated otherwise.

    For desigining an investigation are there any good acronyms to remember all the things I need to put.

    For example, Sampling, Methodology, Opersationalised Hypothesis, Findings, Participant briefiing/consent/withdrawral/ethics, controlling EV's etc.

    Do you use anything like an acronym to list all of these to ensure u dont miss one out


    ALSO - for the statistics... do I have to memorise every single formula as I definetly can not do that, or do they have the formula e.g. Chi Squared O-E Squared / E on top of the paper so I can refer to it and then just put the numbers in?

    So would you guys think it's unlikely we'll get a question for either psychological explanations or treatments of depression?

    Biological exps and therapies are the most likely after classification issues to come up. So if you don't revise them you're totally and utterly f*cked what are you thinking holy sh*t!

    There would be a special place in hell for AQA if they repeated the exact same essay questions from last year.

    I hate psychology so much, I regret taking it on as and AS subject almost every day, having to learn the studies which are practically stating the obvious is tedious and time consuming and worst of all the content that is interesting is dwarfed by the evaluate rubbish which is a big fat yawn in my opinion. Ifeel sorry for anyone doing this subject at university and cannot wait till I sit my paper knowing that I never again have to be forced to endure the bin lorry that is AQA psychology.
