    What's the best revision books? Plan to do Psychology next term
    It'll be a new higher so I dont know how much will be different but the 'higher psychology' textbook by Morag Williamson, Mike Cardwell and Cara Flanagan is good

    Whats everyones predications im doing conformity and Obedience, intelligence , memeory, early socialisation?
    I think a question on conformity will come up and for memory I think one of the following: STM/LTM, models of memory or theories of forgetting. I don't think resisting social pressure nor eye witness testimony will come up.

    I think the memory, stress, research methods and conformity/obedience sections will be okay. I'm concerned about atypical behaviour because there are so many possibilites - definitons, approaches, therapies etc.. Is it worth learning therapies since they came up last year?

    I'm doing the same topics !

    I'm thinking:
    Conformity
    Theories of Intelligence (hopefully!!) or uses of IQ testing
    Working memory model & Theories of Forgetting (dreading this!!)
    Privation and/or separation (possibly), mary ainsworth, behaviorist theory (this one i'm really not sure about!)

    What are you thinking ???

    Good luck for tomorrow everyone! What has everyone learned? I've done conformity and obedience, medical model, behaviorist model, psychodynamic model, the 2 models of memory, theory of forgetting, stress management, GAS, flight or fight response I'm completely winging the research methods 😂

    Nah I've learned therapies aswell I'm most worried about stress because I have a feeling transactional model and individual differences will come up and I know **** about them

    So what did you think then?! I predicted memory the individual differences/enviromental but transactional did not come up! EWT came up as well I didn't revise for it haha :L Also I knew it could be a correlation and conformity would come up too. (as predicted). However, I'm surprised with definitions of atypical behaviour, luckily I revised for it tho :s I really wanted behaviourist approach tho tbh.. -_- Excuse my terrible scribbles on the paper D: Name:  IMG_20150602_120652.jpg

    I couldn't remember studies for the environmental sources and the individual differences and atypical behaviour, I just went blank! Liked the rest of the paper!

    Hello lunamorrissey, I thought the EWT question was not good solely because I didn't revise it. But hey it's only 8 marks. The research methods was really good and so was the conformity question and sort of the atypical question. Stress was okay I just spoke about glass et al and his noise experiment and brown and harris no friends thing, For individual differences I wrote about freidman and rosenman personality and age. Not too bad paper for last year of higher, could have been worse!! We also have our projects as well What sort of studies did you discuss for atypical behaviour definitions?

    Charlotte B- I completely agree that question was awful I didn't know a thing!
    AC- thankfully I had revised that study, but it was a really surprising question tbh! Research methods was ok except the graph and correlation questions I had no idea Oh I completely forgot all those studies!! I just wrote about overcrowding
    And for the atypical I spoke about: depression affects 27% of elderly people (NIMH,2001) for statistical infrequency.
    For deviation from social norms i spoke about: Szasz (1974) claimed that mental illness wassimply a way to exclude non-conformists from society.And Cochrane, African-Caribbean immigrants are seven timesmore likely to be diagnosed with schizophrenia .
    Not sure if they're right but I had practiced that question a bunch from the past papers so was happy with it! What about you?

    Ahh at least for the envriomental/individual differences you put down some studies, better than none! Also I wrote about the NIMH as well! Did you metion Jahoda (1958 I think ) by any chance? I had a feeling correlation would come up because there hasn't been one since 2010. I can give this big f-off psychology book that I didn't useback to my father now: Name:  IMG_20150602_180945.jpg

    Hello again, sorry I forgot to reply to you just remembered you messaged back! I can't remember if you said you were doing sociology, if so how did that go? Sounds kinda sad but I miss going to college once a week to do Psychology, it was like a ritual! Saying that, I would always over indulge at Mcdonald's now and then xD

    ooh yeah also I didn't take those pictures of the paper in the exam hall, I took them on my desk at home! I probably could have got a away with it tho, since there was only one invigilator 'watching us' when he was drinking a cup of tea reading a newspaper xD
