    In evaluations, do we have to have at least one positive and one negative, or can they be all either positive or negative? Because for some of my revision notes, i've only been learning negatives and it's only just occurred to me :/ Like for Zimbardo, could I just use 3 in-depth evaluation points about how there could have been demand characteristics, bad ethics and Reicher and Haslam finding opposite findings (Obviously putting much more detail than that) and it would be enough to get high marks? Or do i need at least one advantage point as well?
    No, evaluations are usually a critique of the study.
    They can be positive or negative, but more often than not, negative. It links in with falsifying (trying to prove things wrong).

    Social roles
    generalise
    controlled observation
    variables
    ecological validity
    unethical
    observer bias.

    Look at a mark scheme. You won't get higher than 6 marks if you don't include technical or psychological language.
    I'm a teacher, trust me
    Oh I get you, I would have included most of those but that was just simplified. Most evaluation points can get away with saying 'cannot be generalised to general population'' or 'lacks ecological validity' and considering most studies we use have near enough the same points they are fairly easy to remember

    if anyone struggles to remember try using Loopa's method GRENADE

    I'm aware of how to evaluate, I teach it.

    Anybody else think paper 2 seems much easier than paper 1 in regards to topics?
    Paper 2 is harder to be honest but the biopsychology of it is pretty simple as we must have learnt all that at GCSE.

    Yes.
    Research methods will appear mostly in paper 2, but it can crop up in paper 1 too.

    12 markers I think
    But your 6/8 markers need to be detailed,, logical and coherent
