    what did everyone put for the 12 marker? i put about brain laterisation, hormones and genes but i didnt put anything about sex determination(HY antigen and that)?
    Y chromosome stimulates production of testes which produce testosterone and other androgens
    Testosterone linked with aggression, hair development, voice depending
    Females no hormone released leads to development of ovaries - progesterone and oestrogen and their role in female production - breasts, wide hips
    Brain lateralisation - male right sided

    Compared with learning - SLT difference (nurture) and similarity is that they both involve parents (conception for biological or role models for learning)
    Supported learning with bandura - shows children copy same sex model and also supported with Daphney west
    Supported biological with David Reimer

    For Banduras study i put they had decided behaviour before the procedure or something because they had inter-rater reliability, and they were looking for things such as kicking, punching swearing etc

    I got a B last year as well and I messed up the last bit on the Vicarious reinforcement question and also what did you put for operant conditioning dog question?
    Negative reinforcement - take away lead (something unpleasant if they go through tunnel)
    Positive reinforcement/primary - treat if they go over hurdles
    Punishment - stern telling off or smack on nose if they don't go through tunnel

    Referred the spike and other person throughout, you?

    I did the same as you, except I included lots of evaluation for the biological approach with some comparisons as it said make sure to include ATLEAST one

    I talked about Positive reinforcement and Primary reinforcement giving Spike treats

    I also talked about punishment and how it may lead to negative reinforcement

    What did you include for evaluation?
    Estimations on grade boundaries? I'm guessing they'll be high because it's only resits sitting or

    Which 7 marker are u referring to?

    For the longitudinal study evaluation i talked about, cohort effect, also its good due to same participants (participant variables) - bad because time-consuming and requires large number of participants
    The 7 marker on devising your own practical to do with tests throughout the year etc

    Supporting evidence Money, Daphne Went as a criticism
    Reductionist, Deterministic, Value
    and some comparison points e.g. scientifically credibility opposed to psychodynamic

    Last year was like 59 for an A, this year maybe 60+, but some people have said they found the exam a bit difficult e.g. me I didnt like it too much compared to last years exam so cant be completely certain

    We've practically done the same! We both also lost a mark on the silly question about vicarious reinforcement and motivation - hopefully we've done well! What did you do for describe the key issue? Is autism an extreme male brain condition? I included symptoms and incidence rates hopefully that's 3 marks

    Longitudinal study I put:
    Qual and quantitative data - triangulation
    Progress can be mapped such as genie
    Developmental milestones mapped - genie
    Allows statistical tests to be carried out
    High dropout rate leads to biased sample

    Multiple choice I put they had 2 observers who agreed on behaviour for bandura study (think it was D) and phallic stage for the Freud multiple choice question.

    The only question which caught me off was the 3 marker on why Freud concluded Hans was scared of his father, I didn't know 3 points

    Yeah hopefully we did do well! But I cant be certain, as I didnt like a lot of the questions e.g. conclusion to why Freud thought Hans was in the oedipus complex.

    My biological key issue was completely different, it was to do with criminal behaviour

    The 3rd question after the multiple choice, yeah i also put things like that and also how Hans had hatred for his father and liked to get into his mothers bed. I also included one or two of Hans' dream as I didnt know if everything i'm writing is enough for 3 marks

    Phew! About the hans question

    I said; there will be a difference in the amount of litter when measured at once for the month and once a week or something when measured in the amount of litter in each street

    Making it more representative; Tracy should take litter from more streets in the town to get a representative sample

    My learning observation was something about looking at gender differences in car sizes - I talked about inter-rater reliability being an issue
