    I found it a good paper, compared to what I was preparing myself to face haha. Only thing I screwed up on was Cognitive Approach to gender (I didnt know any but I wrote Schema and Kohlberg, so probably picked up 2/3 marks on it) and I couldnt think about conditions of worth.
    You need 48? to get an A right? I hope I got it, or a B. I felt the paper went good. I would have walked over broken glass for Behaviourist approach, and there it was, so you can imagine my happiness

    Glad you found it alright I agree - it was ok based on how difficult it was to revise everything lol I spent sooo long revising twin studies and adoption studies and they didn't come up, which I'm glad about actually lol and 48 seems alright so even if you didn't answer a 10 mark question you'd get an A

    and what did you talk about in the behaviorist approach? I talked about Little Albert, Skinner and Pavlov and said the environment is the sole determinant of behavior.

    Hopefully, I think its 48 anyway - thats what I was told. My maths skills arent quite good enough to know these things. What dd you write for the debriefing thing? I was like 'WTF? :p: '

    I think the rooting reflex in babies is right as long as you explained that it's so babies turn their head to receive breast-milk to survive - I learnt it as an evolutionary characteristic from my teacher - so who knows lol.
