I know exactly how you feel!!!
Tomorrow in the morning I have a psychology exam and I just started proper revision last night and then I have just 1hr to revise for chemistry last minute and that unit 4 too!!!

It just sucks that they had to put 2 A2 exams on the same day the fact that they both are 2hrs!!!!

Just go through the spec today and bullet point 6 point for A01 and 6 for A02 that's what I'm doing rn I don't have time to read everything 😭

Literally so scared!!!

But we can do this!!! You know your stuff looking at how much you contributed to the thread!!!

For the 2 studies and their ethical considerations could I use Loftus & Palmer and Yuille & Cutshall or do they have to be from AS?
No that's fine, as long as you have ~4 ethical points and a way in which each could be improved

No
I was wondering because this question came up June 2010,


'Within the Psychodynamic Approach you learned about the study by Freud(1909) into the case of Little Hans who had a phobia of horses. In thisstudy, Hans’s father wrote to Freud to tell him the content of Hans’sdreams and his interviews with his child. Freud then analysed thisinformation.Evaluate this study in terms of validity issues.'

It's asking to evaluate Little Hans, but I guess you could just evaluate dream analysis? I wouldn't be able to link it back to the study, as I hated this study and cant remember anything about it now!

Ok so it doesnt say in the spec specifically about learning AS material (other than key issues), but it's just assumed that you will remember key, key studies like Freud and Milgram

its because they give you a little description of the study and want you to evluate it from that

It's probably been asked before but don't have the time to go through every post and check, we don't have to know the definitions of the 5 types of schizophrenia do we? Only have a general knowledge of them???

Nope

Ive learnt the names of 2, catatonic and paranoid, to use as a feature point,

'Many different types of schizophrenia, for example...'

But you don't need anything more!

You could talk about Ainsworth and compare the views she might have had while observing families in Uganda compared to the families she observed in the USA

No you do need to remember compulsory studies and experiments because the conference we went to the edexcel psychology examiner said that we must be able to evaluate it and suggest improvements

For I&D research method you don't need to know AS unless you want to. I've provided a checklist for unit 4 earlier in the thread it was based on what the examiner said I needed to do but some were the things I'm doing myself.

Ainsworth for strange situation and attachment types

Malgady for interpretation of hearing voices

Don't necessarily need studies. Can use culture bound syndromes etc

For cultural issues I have:

Morocco - mental illnesses are thought to be due to an evil spirit
Casas - blacks tend not to share personal info with othe races
Sue and Sue - Asian Americans tend not to talk about their emotions
Cinnerella - Black christians and Muslim pakistanis feel prayer alleviates depression

Is that enough? Or would i need something like Koro and Sharmans interpretation of schizphrenia as well

Okay thanks, also for is psychology a science, would you talk about what makes something scientific? such as falsifiability quantitive data reliability, hypothesis writing etc.
Then for evaluation ill talk about the different approaches and whether they are scientific or not etc e.g. psychodynamic being the least scientific and bio being the most.
Then maybe a last paragraph on paradigm? And say how for psychololgy theres no paradigms compared to actual science.

Does that seem good? I havent had much time to prepare for this exam :/
