    That was one of the easiest Psya1 papers I've ever seen. Grade boundaries will be sky high.
    I'd beg to differ. Most of the students here will be of the more intelligent region, as they're more actively involved in the subject with extra revision and research and so makes it seem like everybody has done well.

    I imagine a lot of people doing psychology would have tripped up on the smaller 2 and 4 markers, losing marks here and there and especially the 12 marker, where there wasn't a range of studies you could use for AO1 but instead just Bowlby's theory, I suspect many people will slip up and lose several marks there. For A02 a lot of people seemed to have struggled from what I heard, so i'm hoping the grade boundaries will be average. I'll be surprised if they're high.

    I thought that was the definition of "attachment"....emotional bond between children and caregivers.

    On the twelve marker I wrote Bowlby's evolutionary theory and advantages and disadvantages but I forgot some points so I drew symbols and wrote paragraphs e.g. more advantages and disadvantages before placing the symbols where those paragraphs should be. Will I lose loads of marks?

    for the 12 marker I used bowlby evolutionary theory with Adaptive, social releasers, critical period, monotropy and internal working model as AO1 and then as AO2 I used supporting and contradicting research and evaluated them. is that okay?

    I put absolutely everything I knew on secure attachments, had no idea what the mark scheme would want. But yeah put that too, but thought I may as well explain what behaviour infants with secure attachments show and other random stuff. Surely they won't mark me down for blabbing on about secure attachments, hope not anyway.
    I'm hoping the mark scheme will be generous, am I the only one who was never shown a definition?

    for A02 on the 12 marker i said that it undermines the role that the father plays in development due to secondary attachment. Is that creditworthy?
    Yeah that was a study carried out by grossman and grossman

    Can't deny the fact that it was an extremely easy paper in comparison to past papers though, no questions with long, boring stems and no questions involving day care/disruption/privation - all those long ones people usually tend to struggle on.

    The research methods questions were so easy too, no difficult figures to interpret or chart drawing.

    yeah i really struggled with this one as well. I put child used so parents need to give informed consent, child being very distressed and causing psychological harm, giving the mum the right to withdraw at any time if the baby seemed distressed and debriefing the mum.

    Had no idea about the ethical issues of strange situation so i doubt any of those will get marks hahaha kinda just guessed and tried to apply ethical issues to S.S hahaha oh well
