    I thought that was a stupid paper. It was too easy. 90% of the content we learnt in class wasn't even on there. Attachment was pretty much only strange situation and Bowbly. The grade boundaries will be high and the second paper will be hard -_-

    Same! I'm glad it was quite simple but at the same time, I could have gotten a much better mark if I'd looked over a tiny detail on Eyewitness Testimony and not done ALL the stuff on what wasn't even on the paper.
    Same! I spent the whole morning making sure I knew the strengths and weaknesses of the working memory model, and that didnt even come up! I did manage to mention it briefly in my evaluation of the multi store model though, so that didn't go to waste. Luckily, I made sure I revised anxiety in eye witness testimony, though the strange thing is I didn't do any studies on age, so I'm so so so happy that that didn't come up!

    How high do you guys think the grade boundaries will be? If everyone is saying it's easy... They never go higher than like 56 though right?

    what are your predictions for the grade boundaries?? i bet they're going to be high! Hopefully Unit 2 is just as easy
    I reckon quite high unfortunately! And also, usually if one of the exams is easy, the other is slightly harder, which I'm not looking forward to! :eek:

    I still think I messed up on that 12 marker, is cognitive developmental hypothesis being a privation of attachment leading to devastating effects on the child a valid AO1 point? And then using genie for AO2
    can someone please confirm this is correct and i wouldnt lose marks for it ? )))
    I think that's correct, because even though they are from the institutionalisation/ privation topic, if you related them to Bowlby then I think you'll be fine! In one of my textbooks an evaluative point of Bowlby's theory was that the children in Tizard+Hodges study formed attachments despite suffering from privation.

    I thought it was alright but I definitely messed up on some of the short mark questions. E.g. the one about the strange situation and the question was about demand characteristics and the mother... I didn't write about social desirability but everyone I know did.
    There was too much on research methods!!!!

    They both support/oppose Bowlby's sensitive period/contiunity hypothesis/internal working model, so you can still use them.
    Hoping you're right!

    When did social desirability come up? There weren't any questions on self-reporting techniques.

    AHH YESSSS!!!! I said that bowlby claimed if attachment was never formed it can lead to devistating effects in mental development such as LOW IQs

    and then for A02 BOY I WENT HAM ON THE A02 for genie, i ended up evaluating the evaluation

    I'm not sure about that For AO1 I described Bowlbys theory so all about it being innate, social releasors, critical period, monotropy, continuity hypothesis etc. Then for AO2 Lorenz and the ducklings imprinting supports Bowlbys theory that attachment is innate and u could then mention privation and children not forming attachment in critical period so having a negative effect like in the case of Genie. You'd definitely get AO2 marks just not sure about AO1

But a full 3 pages on size 11... Please someone help. When will the exams be sent out? can i go tomorrow and ask to check if it is all there?

    The only thing I found a bit bizzare with that exam paper was the amount of writing space it had. Like it had a full page for the question about a pilot study?!

    That's exactly what I was thinking. However, I finished the paper with a spare 15 minutes, so I went back and added things to pretty much every single question, which filled out all of the space. I don't think what I did was necessary but I didn't want to waste my time. The bizarre thing was how much space they left for us to write the hypothesis, when in reality it should only be a sentence.
