    It needed to be operationalised. e.g.

    'Students who use acronyms to recall the list of 10 words in order will remember significantly more than students who use the method of Loci.'
    Damn. Think I put:

    'Participants who use memory improvement strategies (method of loci) will correctly recall more words then participants who did not use memory improvement strategies'.

    Yeah that's correct, the experiment was on the efficiency on one memory improvement strategy, so you can't talk about two.

    me too - I put ''students who use the narrative method will recall more words correctly than those who just merely memorise the words''

    Is this incorrect?

    For the question on research into anxiety on EWT did anyone else use Peters 1988? This was about anxiety and accuracy of recall in EWT but no one else seems to have used this study, do you think I could still get marks?

    Also for the question on strengths of Strange Situation I panicked and said it this study by Ainsworth is one of the most influential and important studies on attachment and is therefore valid- do you think I could scrape the 2 marks for this....?

    This is wrong.
    The highest it has been in the last few years is 55/72, there is no way that it would be much higher, especially as high as 60.
    There will be students, although the /seemingly/ easy paper, who will only be able to access the lower grade/bands, thus having to keep the grade boundaries reasonable.
    The paper, although seemingly easy, can mean that marking is harsher plus, it was actually a paper open to many stupid mistakes.

    Peters is valid; more participants were able to identify the researcher than the nurse; due to the heightened levels of anxiety that come with the needle!

    SS question is a bit ambiguous. Probably one mark in there?

    But how is it valid just because its an important study? Did you provide evidence maybe like mention about the meta-analysis?

    I know I'm late, should've asked yesterday but can someone just help me out. Yesterday during this exam, I felt as though my hands weren't working properly. I couldn't even hold the pen straight and it felt as though it was taking me absolute ages to write (I spent 20 minutes on the first page just writing about the msm which is not normal). I changed pens constantly, was feeling extremely fidgety and my hands were sweating badly.. It's never happened to me before so is this normal? Also to add I didn't finish my 12 marker, I was just about to start ao2 when we had 5 minutes left and I wrote 3 sentences in these 5 minutes, so thats 6 marks defo down the drain
    Don't worry, I've had this problem today in my Geography exam. I didn't do two 15 markers (like a quarter of the paper!) and it was awful!

    EDIT: I actually cried after.

    No I was really pushed for time, so in a panic I didn't think to mention meta-analysis to back my point up...So I imagine I've dropped a mark or two with that question

    Ah okay thank you, that is reassuring. And yes, I think my SS answer is probably too vague, so I imagine only one mark.

    Do you mean normative social influence and informational social influence?

    In this case ..

    A strength of these explanations is that they can help us to understand conformity and therefore help people resist pressures to conform. An example of this is that it has been found that normative social influence can explain bullying. The people who are doing the bullying may not actually think that what they're doing is right but they might feel pressure to bully in order to conform to their group's norms.

    A weakness is that we can't always explain conformity with normative social influence and informational social influence because most of the research has been done using lab experiments therefore the results lack ecological validity. It also means that it's hard to generelise them to real life settings.

    Another weakness is that it would be wrong to see these explanations as completely separate explanations. A better way of explaining conformity may be by combining both explanations.
