    would you get mark for saying ducks instead of geese
    Probably not as ducks are not the same as geese! Don't worry though it's only one mark!

    I put birds... AQA is quite lenient with things like that unlike OCR so you should be fine. Don't panic over 1 mark anyway

    I also thought the working memory question was so vague, I wrote briefly about the model itself but then I went on to talk about brain damaged patients such as KF and HM and Clive , do you reckon that's wrong?

    What did everyone write for the 12 marker on the working memory?

    The wording threw me off so much, I ended up basically outlining and evaluating the working memory model, and for 2 points in my evaluation I used 'psychological research' (Shallice and Warrington's study of KF and Baddeley et al in dual task performance) but idk if that's what they were asking

    You probably wouldn't because they were goslings, not ducks or geese (theoretically)!

    I didn't do the final evaluation point in the Strange Situation 12 marker D: I only mentioned inter-rater reliability and subsequent outcomes
    As long as you have two well rounded evaluation points you don't need the third so it should be fine, don't worry

    I unpicked each section of the model and wrote a little about what psychological research into each bit has shown or how it applies to real life. For instance, evidence for the phonological loop and its articulatory process is through telephone numbers!

    The wording threw me though so I forgot to evaluate. Yet I evaluated for the second 12 marker?! I'm absolutely gutted...

    I've not heard of that before?
    It means consistency over a period of time-you should get the mark as long as you explained what it was

    Ducks are closer to geese and people were telling me they put birds so i might get lucky you never know

    No why would that be wrong? I did exactly the same but used the case studies as evaluation

    the 12 marker question for attachment was something like "discuss the strange situation in assessing attachment types"
    did we have to outline it in detail? or is it mainly evaluation ??
    my thoughts exactly!! i did both and was running out of time, i wrote till the very last second!!

    aaw i'm gutted too! especially since working memory model and multi-store is such a simple thing to talk about seems like everybody found it hard though so hopefully lower grade boundaries, fingers crossed anyway hahaha

    I thought social influence was the hardest. What did everyone put for the minority influence question and how it linked to the holiday thing?

    For asch's variability if you didnt state the numbers e.g 75% and you just said conformity increases/decreases with that variability would you still gain the marks?
    Yes as long as you state the effect, percentages aren't necessarily needed

    Hey for the 8 marker I didn't answer fully and ran out of time but I wrote a couple bullet points do you think I could still get marks?
