    Okay thanks, would you also advise doing the research methods section first as it contains more marks and you may be able to finish this in less than 50 minutes to then spend more time on the essays?

    I was about to say that, it depends how quickly you can answer RM. Personally, I'll be doing it in order, so I can get OCD out of the way annd because I usually use the time on research methods

    In Psya4, is it possible for the 'Psychology in Action' (eg Media) questions to be a single 24 mark discussion question? Or is it always split up into 4, 4 and 6 and 10 (or similar)?

    Hi just wondering how long are everyone's essays for PSYA3? Mine are around 750 words and they take exactly 30 minutes to write so I have no time to read through them afterwards. This is kind of a worry for me as they are A's but if I shorten them will they be worth as many marks ?

    Mine are all around 700 and I've been getting A's so maybe shorten them a little. Try to write faster or know the content better so time for thought is reduced to give more time for writing

    AS: A
    A2 prediction: A*

    For unit 3 I'm doing: gender, intelligence, and perception

    Unit 4: depression, addiction and research methods


    anyone have any detailed and good notes for research methods??
    I do intelligence also - would u refer to Cattell (1943)'s theory of intelligence as a multifactorial theory or hierarchical theory?

    Also - for Spearman's 'g' have you been taught just his reference to 'g' or a later version where he splits into 2 - which i have seen in the textbook but ignored because I've only ever been told he developed theory of general overarching intelligence.
