    in the exam do they ask one question from each topic: forensic psychology,abnormal levels of conciseness? also why controversy do you think will come up?

    my predictions: eyewitness, jury,theories of sleep maybe nature of dreams as it was badly answered last year and also examiners love to repeat questions and bias in diagnostic x

    ALSO... we should maybe make a group chat with everyones predictions in, may be helpful?

    Im going to cut down to learning two per topic because of the short time I have and here are my prediction as follows:

    Controversies: Scientific Benefits + Ethics, Gender Bias
    LoC: Theories of Sleep & Endo + Exo Factors in Bodily Rhythms (may do Disorders of Sleep - easy 3 to learn)
    Forensics: Decision Making of Juries + Factors Affecting EWT Accuracy
    Abnormality: Bias in Diagnostics System + Aeitologies of Depression

    Pretty much do-able in 3 days but as far as time permits, I can only do 2 each as it will take far too much time learning more than that.

    Willing to take a hit but only want a C/B in the subject so its worth taking.

    Probably the only question I REALLY ballsed up on. For some reason I operationalised it and started talking about Heart Rate but in the correct context, so no idea if I'll pick up any marks. I put:

    "There'll be a significantly increased heart rate in those exposed to the media regularly when exposed to a phobic object than those who are not exposed to the media regularly".

    Not sure if it'll pick up any marks at all. Opinion please?
    I'd say at least one? if not two. You still have the notion of a significant difference between conditions so i think whether its 1 or 2 depends on your marker

    I know exactly how you feel! I have all day today, Sunday and Monday to revise PLUS my other subjects.
    I just thought I would let you know that I am revising them all but going over the essays in more detail for the ones I think will come up.
    That way, if they don't come up, I have still revised for the others!
    Good Luck!

    I agree with Abnormal predictions, for Forensics I'd say Jury Decision Making is second over Theories of Crime and for the Controversies I'd say Gender Bias may come up more over than Culture Bias

    Definitely sure on the Abnormal topic!

    However, Juries has been on twice once in January 2014 and once in January 2012 whereas Theories of Crime has been asked once in January 2013.

    Also, Gender Bias was on June 2014, June 2013 and January 2012 whereas Culture Bias had been on once in January 2014.

    Why wouldn't you?
    I may speak for the majority because when you have other subjects that are much harder than PY4 then you focus on those rather than the 'easier' ones!
