    Just wondering how much IDA points you need to access full marks?
    Only one, and although I tend to do more the textbook actually says not to do more than two

    This is true, but there is no separate mark for AO2 and AO3, so IDA could count as AO2 so really there's no limit to the IDA you could do - if it suits the essay, include it.

    Not technically true, examiners do tend to allocate certain marks to evaluation and studies, and then marks to IDA. So although we just see it as 8+16, it's apparently marked slightly differently

    Could you in theory, for example write 2 Ida's saying it is reductionist and still get the top marks, e.g. The biological approach to gender development is reductionist bc: doesn't take into account learning (gender schema theory) or social influences,
    Where you would write a fully developed point on either

    Im doing Relationships Aggression and Intelligence. They seem to like doing splits in intelligence (like 4+8) and have done quite a few 4+16 in aggression, which is grim, do you think they could do that this year?

    Also, in Jan 2012 for intelligence they did 8 AO1 marks for classical conditioning, then they wanted 16 AO2 marks on intelligence in non human animals which barely has anything to do with classical and is a whole different essay, so essentally they wanted us to evaluate something without writing any AO1 points about it, which frankly is harsh af. Do think this is likely to happen again? Tbf it was ages ago (idk have they changed the spec since?)

    To get an A* you need enough UMS for an A which is 320 and need to average 90% in A2 papers
    For last year's PSYA3 paper you needed 51/72 to get an A*. Does that mean that if you get 51/72, you will get 90 UMS?

    Btw, for a question on breakdown of relationships, have you guys prepared two full theorys, I am just thinking include Ducks reasons, followed by his model? I have like 7 good A02/A03 points for all of that?
    It depends, if its a 24 marker, they may well ask for 2 theories. If you mean though rollie and duck's 6 stage model and then duck's reasons for breakdown (lack of skills, stimulation and maintenance issues) then that is 2 theories

    I would say just go into as much depth as possible for yr ao1 and do double that for AO2 include about 3-4 paragraphs for research evaluation(include strengths and weaknesses), and then 1 IDA and some methodological points to top it off!

    I've given up with exogenous zeitgebers - the evaluation is too all over the place and there's not enough studies I can find that actually hugging EZ rather than EP, loopa is no help either.

    I'm just going to move on because it's frustrating me too much!
