    School at 7am? wow.
    I know! Some schools don't do it until much later. I'm really glad I can get them early in the morning straight after getting up and getting ready instead of hanging around nervously.

    Not really. I'm probably going to get my butler to do all of that nonsense.
    Damn. You should give it a go, I'm still on a bowl high.

    Is anyone else a bit overly excited to start uni shopping? I bought some cute patterned bowls to take with me on a whim today cos they were in the sale and it got me all excited! I'm so excited to get all the rest of my stuff now. Even boring stuff like towels. I was looking at the towels and genuinely feeling excited.
    Haha - I did this too! Went to IKEA yesterday and bought some plates and cutlery, and some really cute mugs

    Rosenhan, what a classic study! Oh, which reminds me, if you're using AS studies for G544 (I did, my teacher said it would be easiest) then make sure you keep revising them throughout the year
    You do learn about lots of types of mental disorders, so things like psychotic disorders. You also learn about diagnosis, so about the ICD diagnostic manual in comparison with the DSM, and there is also a study about sex biases in diagnosis (how there is a tendency for doctors to diagnose based on gender rather than actual symptoms).
    Dysfunctional behaviour is another big topic which is very similar to disorders. The two cross over a lot (we did the same studies both for treating disorders and for treating dysfunctional behaviour). There is also an emphasis on causes of mental disorders (either dysfunctional behaviour or disorders).
    The final other topic we did was stress. This included studies on measuring stress, so using Likert scales etc, and causes of stress (things like lack of control). Even in this topic there were studies using participants with mental disorders. So the vast majority of studies use participants with some sort of mental disorder, but your job is to use the study in relation to treatment of stress or whatever other topic it has been put into (and ultimately manipulate the study in a way which will answer the question).
    Hope that helps! If you feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of studies, just remember that everyone else is in the same boat
    Cheers you have given me a good insight as to what the A level is going to be like. I will probably be able to keep up to date with the work as at GCSE's I had to do a lot of work in order to get good grades I got 2 A's 6B's and 1 C and since then I have just continued which is possibly why I found AS levels not that big of a jump compared to people who got A*'s and A's because I already knew how to revise and work.:cool:

    Who else gets their results late. I receive mine at 10:00am but I don't know if this is just for AS levels for for the A2's as well. I'd rather get them at like 8:00

    You need plural!
    What happens if you don't want to wash up?
    Or if you have people over?

    Usually 3 days before. But your fate has probably already been decided, scripts have been marked.
    They have been marked. But universities can decide to take you below the offer. That starts on sunday.

    I'll steal the crockery of the people I share a kitchen with if I have friends over.

    It wasn't price, but space I was worrying about - you don't want to be taking loads of bags on the train.

    I still feel it is a bit late especially next year because my friend can get them as early as 6:00am as the school opens early on results day to get them prepared for clearing.
