AQA pya5 "approaches in psychology" questions.... watch

    • Thread Starter

    hey guys~

    i was wondering does any body have any model answers or examples of how to answer the "approaches in psychology" questions in PYA5

    they are the series of 6 mark questions...

    our teacher didnt even finish the syllabus but we studied psychodynamic and behavioural models...but i just want to see how to apply it correctly~

    so if anyone can help out that'd be great

    Eysenck "Psychology for A2 Level" has examples of each approach applied to the same question each time.

    The A2 book published by Collins has examples.

    The AQA website has PDF documents you can download. Some are past papers, the others are the marking scheme. Look at the marking scheme, it tells examiners the sort of things pupils are likely to write about and gives examples.

    Here is the page for the links to the papers and marking schemes:


    That's the way I'm checking up on the bits for issues and debates too!

    Good luck

    Iv got the collins A2 book seems to cover everything i think
