    Well I messed up the asch line question hopefully I didn't lose out on my A 😕
    Look examiners arent heartless and be thankful its wasnt a 12 marker MAX you lost out of was 8 and that dropps you down to 64 marks to get if an A is lowered to say 55 youve got 9 marks to move

    Did anyone notice the fact that there were two research methods questions in the paper? I feel like they shouldn't have been there as they weren't relevent to social influence they were purely research methods questions?

    I didn't do the final evaluation point in the Strange Situation 12 marker D: I only mentioned inter-rater reliability and subsequent outcomes

    I know during the pressure its easy to make a wrong move but when did the cognitive interview OR anxiety OR forgetting ever come up with working memory model?

    glad to see people put the working memory model. My friend says on the asch line study he saw that it claimed to ask for 2 limitations but I didn't see that at all. All I saw was two variations and findings. I put the findings eg 36.8 percent and 75 percent in context. And I referred to the variations. Did anyone else see limitations for this question
    Yeah we had to talk about the findings and how they linked to variables affecting conformity and it said underneath to also talk about 2 limitations!

    I put comparison and few case studies. I ruled out long term as my textbook used it as an evaluation point (that we can't predict what could happen as we only know short term)

    Would you lose marks on a twelve marker if you only mention limitations and not any strengths?? Or is that okay to do three limitations?

    I really did love the paper but as OP said, the 12MQs were worded funny and I didn't put much evaluation (I only put 1 strength and weakness for Ainsworth and none for the WMM, oops...)

    I attended a webinar yesterday and they said that it doesn't matter if you only do limitations so I guess the clear-cut answer to that then is it is okay, yep!

    I don't see how it could have been case studies, I put long term because he assessed them at ages 4 6 and 11 then about 20 years later so that's why I put long term. But you might be right so we need someone to clarify

    Procedural LTM was Annie because it deals with skills, episodic LTM was Germaine because it deals with events and semantic LTM was the other one as it deals with facts and knowledge!
