    I'm probably sounding so stupid now but this won't affect me will it? Because I'm retaking?

    It shouldn't. Im not 100% sure. I know for economics if you were retaking you did the old spec/ old paper. So im guessing its the same for Psychology?

    omg i thought it was really weird as well ! section B was really confusing, did you put men and women as the IV? the only question which i found hard to actually write was the one tailed hypothesis, as they've never put that on a paper before (they've only used null and alternative in general!). i still wrote that men would do better on the true and false questions but i added it at the end (in brackets) of a regular alternative hypothesis; don't know if I'll get any marks for it! anyway, i think the 10 marker was quite nice actually, and I can't have done worse than last year where i got a c! what did you struggle with on the paper?

    Yeah they did the resit i think

    We did the new spec. How did you find it? the format of questions was different to the speciment paper (they included those 6 markers). I found section A fine with some concerns about the criterion/construct vailidty question and also the 'where do the calculations go : discussion, results, abstract, appendicies'.

    The section B is ok but i hated the fact they chose the old people and loneliness because i felt like there wasnt much i could say.

    Section c was easy apart from drawing the piechart where we had to do it free hand and also the question about '2 conclusions from the corridor study'
