    AQA don't set the PYA5 in Jan as far as I know.
    It's the synoptic paper and so I guess it would makes sense to only have it at the end of the course.

    EDIT: Ok I'm wrong. It would seem AQA do have Jan papers. Sorry have mistaken exam boards.

    Hey there!
    we do anxiety, depression and schizophrenia at our college but we haven't even been taught obsessive compulsive disorders so would assume you don't have to use that in the exam. hope that helps xxx

    hmm well im really not sure whats gonna come up im hoping anxiety disorders as it hasnt been up the last 2 times so that wud b the obvious one 2 go for and i think it cud b on bio or psychological explanations really. I'm hoping they put it in the same format that they hav done for both schizo and depression in the past which is:

    “The biological approach tells us all we need to know about ???? .”
    With reference to the quotation above, discuss the issue that it raises.

    but they cud b nasty and do another question on schizo as they did last june which is the one i kno least about really! But if they do hav it on schizo it will b psychological explanations since they had it one biological explanation is june! but just a guess really so i think i need 2 go and learn everything! lol

    p.s luke156 thanks for jan 2005 questions been looking for them everywhere!!!

    my advice is all of them, but remember you can only be asked a question on unipolar depression not bi-polar (but best to know it to back yourself up)
