    Hi everyone. Can anyone tell me/point me towards the JUNE 2011 PSYA3 past paper? I can't find it at all on the AQA website and would like to know what the questions were on Sleep, Aggression and Perception!

    Thanks

    Sleep questions were outline narcolepsy (4 marks) and outline & evaluate evolutionary explanations of sleep (8/12)

    Aggression questions were:

    Outline institutional aggression explanations (4 marks)

    The other one was on Group displays of aggression as an EVOLUTIONARY response which had the bulk of the marks.

    I think there may have been one more for aggression - not sure...

    Check psychexchange for further info - it may be on there.

    Relationships I think perhaps either Sexual selection or maintenance.

    For Aggression I think Genetics perhaps.

    no idea for eating behaviour!

    These are just pure guesses btw, im not doing psya3 but i did it january
    Thanks
    I did it in Jan but want to resit.

    Is anyone doing aggression? - if yes, what are the IDA's (Issues, Debates and Approaches) for the importation model (dispositional factors) and the Deprivational model (situational factots) regarding institutional aggression?!

    I am not studying Relationships and haven't learnt Aggression yet so don't sorry.

    However I am doing Sleep, so thank you for your list!

    How do you really think they'll ask us specifically ask us about lifespan changes on their own? I don't think there's 24 marks worth to write about? I was thinking that they'd combine that into the nature of sleep?

    It can be combined OR asked on its own. There is actually quite lot on lifespan.

    Does anyone have any model answers for aggression, perception or gender? I've done two on perception, but they need marking. I can upload them once they're marked if anyone wants them.
