    Guys!!!! For unit 3 I just realised that I didn't put the number of the question in the boxes (I'm an idiot yes I know but I didn't read it) instead I put it next to the answer on the actual lines so e.g. 02) biological explanations state....

    Will this affect anything? Omg I'm praying it doesn't because I didn't write ANY of the question numbers in the boxes only on the lines
    I noticed my mistake in today's exams and filled it in correctly but I'm panicking now because I realised I didn't for unit 3
    You should be OK, there's a little page somewhere on the AQA website that says they try and work out in every case where people forget to do this, also applies to other stuff like people using blue pens etc If your result does come back and looks really weird you should be able to fix it though appeal if not, but from what I can tell they try their best to work it out! Especially since you wrote the question number you'll almost certainly be fjne

    So...
    For the first 30 mins I wrote about Biological explanations (in great freaking detail) rather than therapies. Realised my mistake though and managed to write about the therapies and include ECT and some BS Ao2 xD

    Media.... I don't really know what they want for the 10 marker. I mentioned the pro-social behavioural traits (altruism, empathy, positive interaction) and used studies to show what they could do (e.g. I mentioned Sprafkin and their findings, then said the programme could contain instances of altruism whereby a child rescues an animal in distress; I mentioned Ostrov in a similar fashion but for eduactional media).

    I only wrote 3/4 of a page, though...

    H-Y model was pretty good... speaker ---> attention ---> clear message ---> comprehension ---> yielding and persuasion... I think that's right. (I did mention the audience throughout.)

    Evolutionary explanations... I did Gossip theory using 2 studies and evaluating them (probably badly) and the other one about love of novelty and evaluated one study.

    RM was pretty good aside from the consent form which I dragged out by quite a bit...

    Managed to finish though so... yay? Next is maths tomorrow
    Yo lol - I did one ao2 point similar for the bio therapies essay - shouldn't be too bad as long as we have enough Ao2 elsewhere

    I had like 3 minutes left and needed to do the graph so drew a pie chart for god sake! Not gd.

    Also the directional hypothesis i wrote something like "anxiety scores will be lower after the 6 week programme" but thats not operationalised or anything is it ahhh

    I tried to make it clear by putting something like: 'The statistical test which I would use in this investigation is a Mann-Whitney U test.' And then I listed three appropriate reasons which I'm hoping are correct.

    Then below I named Chi-Squared and listed three reasons.

    I should have probably crossed out one of my answers. Yolo I can't change it now
    Yeah hopefully they'll take ur first answer

    How did people apply the pro-social question to the scenario? I talked about how the company could make a TV game show programme for children where the participants will be children they have to work in teams and cooperate to solve tasks. The wining team Will be rewarded with medals. I said this will increase the likelihood of imitation, as children may imitate this behaviour in real life like in school when the teachers make them work in teams.
    I then stated a study to support the idea that media can lead to pro-social behaviour.
    Did I do it right?? Were you meant to put forward two explanations, or would one be okay? What did other people put??

    A pie chart is a straight up no though

    It is operationalised, I'd give you a mark or two for that.

    Probably wont get the other because you didn't say significantly

    Research Methods

    1) Directional hypothesis- i put something like the students scores on the questionnaire will decrease significantly after they have undergone the 6 week treatment

    2) Consent Form
    I consent that my child will take part in this study
    I understand that that they will take part in a 6 week programme (blah,blah,blah)
    I understand that my child has the right to withdraw at any time
    I understand that my child details will be confidential
    Sign.......

    3) Reliability- Extent to which data is consistent
    internal Validity- the extent to which a study/measuring tool measures what it sets out to measure
    4) I put that that internal validity can be assessed by face validity- looking at the questions on the question and seeing if they measure what its supposed to
    and then mentioned about concurrent validity where correlations are made
    5) A one-tailed test was used because the hypothesis was directional
    6) The results were significant
    7)I put that the Mann-whitney U test was the suitable test to be used because:

    The data was ordinal
    The hypothesis predicted a difference between two sets of data
    An independent groups design was used

    For the last question, I just gave the definition of what a matched pairs design was, didnt know what else to write

    Was the directional hypothesis about the small scale study (questionnaire) or the whole study about the 6 week programme?

    Also, the results from the wilcoxon T test were significant, right? Because the T value was less than the critical?
