    its because they give you a little description of the study and want you to evluate it from that
    you need to know all the key issues from all 5 approaches last year

    as it says on the spec we need to know a study for field, lab, interviews, case studys correlational stuff ect.. (cant remember what else jeez theres so many) do we need to know the studies in full detail? aim method results conclusion evaluation?! I really hope not...how do they expect us to remember so much? we're not superhuman!

    Thanks dude! Yh I think I'm gonna have to.. nature/nurture can do one cos it came up last year, things like ethics studies and contributions I'll just skim over cos after all contributions can be blagged to some extent

    They better let me revise after french ! Ill just make a few sticky notes on the things I find hard to remember (like social causation which is wishy washy) and take them for tomorrow as well as my prac/key issue notes so i dont feel like ive got as much to revise

    Good luck all . I know I'll need it
    i find social explanation hard to remember as well. bleh.
    with contributions you really only need to know how it's useful to society, basically, right? i mean haven't seen a question that means you need to explain the whole thing. i dunno. i'm going through 18 markers now because they require different elements and i need to learn how they need to be answered.

    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

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    so an improvement for Milgram could be 'in order to not deceive ps he should have told them the true aim so they could have given their informed consent' is that right? i can suggest something even it means that another part of the study will lack?

    and what else did the examiners say o: anything about social control? any tips generally?

    Dno if you'd get the mark for saying 'don't decieve ppts', I'm doing it as an ethics study and my improvement is 'choose a less distressing task such as taking points as oppose to administering shocks'

    apparently you dont as they tend to never come up due to them being the same thing as contributions

    I dont think that would be worthy for a mark, as deceiving the participants was important to avoid demand characteristrics otherwise the study would be completely useless. Also Milgram and his team predicted none of the participants would go to 450 volts

    I think a better way to improve the study would be to maybe emphasise the right to withdraw more

    they do come up every other year or so and tend to be worth no less than 5 marks - usually 5-8 so not worth the risk - help with revision for contributions as well as info from key issues can be applied to contributions but contributions info cant really be applied to key issues if you don't know what the key issues are and what eval points they have for them
