That's so low!
But I got a C last yr (90) so to get an A/A* I need 113 (based on 2015 grade boundaries for unit 3 and 4), and I reckon I got 45-50 on unit 3 so probably ~105 overall.. who knows oh well

thats exactly how I answered the question! but instead of sfp, i used agency theory. i think it was a very broad question with lots of possible theories, im sure you can use sfp

ah thank you thats so reassuring to hear! i havent been able to revise just stricken with anxiety, i just explained they should observe a role model with good postive trait or be labelled to be strong and powerful, literally a split moment decision, but again thank you !

people may have found it more difficult than you? You don't know if you've got an A* until they mark it

I think its fairly obvious why people found the exam hard considering you've been commenting in the thread over the past few hours..

duuuude, i was wondering how you got on. how was french?

:lol::lol::lol:

at least you're confident you're gonna get a B. i mean i did try and roughly work out what i got and it was a 57 but i'd minus 5 from that.
i'd be estactic if i got a B.

the social norms questions threw me off. i didn't even revise it. the 18m were horrible as well, i think i got 3 :lol::lol: 3 for content analysis, if im lucky

Evaluate 2 studies which used different research methods and discuss how they are scientific (4)
For this question, did the studies have to be from different areas? Cos I did the same approach

People expect papers to be easy nowadays though, it was a psychology paper and therefore contained ethnocentrism, is psychology a science etc... people just love to moan. Put the work in and don't moan

What theories did you write about??
social learning i did loads for. then I did operant conditioning, levels of processing, freudian oedipus complex (guns are penises) I made it work just about, and using steroids to increase performance in the soldiers, (drawing on the practical and ethical issues), fear of death (thanatos, Freud).

what about you?

ew you can't say 'put the work in and dont moan'. some people try their hardest and maybe at their best, all they can produce is a C or whatever. some people have a bad memory. some people get overwhelmed and can't think clearly. you sound like a douche.

people have just sat an important exam, let us worry a little, not everyone is as confident as you.

For 9b - is saying the programmes should include SLT and how they can have a role model who does similar behaviours and not get punished or receive a reward and then evaluate this with Bandura's study showing we copy those we can relate to but then evaluate this piece of evidence further saying the study was only on 3-6yr olds so not generalisable to soldiers correct?
Also is using SIT correct? How we can be split into groups and set tasks that involve competing against each other meaning we become competitive and want to beat the other group making soldiers better. Then evaluating this with how Sherif found we work together when there's a subordinate goal and against each other when in competition. Evaluate this further with how they were all boys but there were girls in the army who may not behave similarly?
I wrote about operant conditioning (how that could be used when in charge of the group of 30 soilders) and agency theory
So long as it's suitable and appropriate it should be fine, I was gonna do SLT but wasn't sure. You could do SIT as well

No one thinks its going to be easy? you can't say you've got an A* until the paper is marked, extremely unfair to say people don't 'put work in'
People don't just love to moan this is a forum to share ideas and thoughts, not a place for you to tell people they should have done really well in the paper.
