    There is lots and lots to remember yes.....

    Look on the spec at what it says... if it says "including" then you need to know it.. if it says "for example" then you don't!

    Make things easier for your self and learn only what you need...

    e.g. 2 theories of relationship formation. learn two really well, forget the rest.

    hopefully we'll get easy questions anyway. what topics are you studying?

    Well you can look in the book you've been revising from it will let you know ... or look at this

    http://web.aqa.org.uk/qual/gce/pdf/AQA-2180-W-SP-10.PDF

    It says

    Evolutionary explanations of parental investment: for example, sex differences,
    parent-offspring conflict

    When it says for example it means you don't have to talk about that, they can only make you talk about things when it says including next to it. That's why i've not even taken the time to learn POC, don't need it.

    Don't worry, I'm feeling exactly the same... I'm doing Gender, Aggression and Cognitive Development and there's so much information to learn I fear my head may explode

    ideal situation! or hopefully the essays will be really general and we can just apply our knowledge to that (not that I have any knowledge). I literally have half a years work to cram tonight...I'm starting at 4:30 and finishing at 12:00 I've decided.

    Good luck everyone!

    yeah general questions would be nice
    yknow what'd be good
    "talk about relationships" haha, not that they would ever do that

    i don't think aqa really thought about the sheer amount of information theyre trying to make us remember
    also i don't really see how memory recall is testing how good of a psychologist you are. i hate aqa !

    No worries man what you struggling with?

    They could pop a question about that, did I already mention what studies to use? They're pretty easy to evaluate too!

    Well I've done my own eating behaviours notes (to a degree), so if you happen to want to revise biological rhythms or gender (this would be great), I'd vastly appreciate it.

    Does anybody have any exam-style questions that aren't from the spec paper/Nelson Thornes book? I'd really appreciate it.

    Relationships/aggression/eating behaviour

    Thanks in advance!

    basic relationships stuff:

    formation- reward/need satisfaction model-bryne and clore
    matching hypothesis- walster

    maintenance- Social Exchange Theory/Equity Theory- Bryne and Clore
    Investment model- Rusbult

    Breakdown thory- rollie and duck

    Sexual selection stuff- sexual dimorphism
    4 factors: 1. mental capabilities
    2.facial preference (grammer and thornhill, thornhill and gangestad)
    3.provisioning (fisher)
    4.body + behaviour (zahavi)
    sperm competition (harvey and harcourt)
    personal ads- dunbar

    Childhood Effects stuff-
    bowbly's internal working model
    ainsworths attachment types
    adolescence- mother daughter and father son relationships + peers (haynie + madeson)

    parental investment
    trivers
    mother invests more, limited number (buss- emotional infidelity jealousy)
    sibling rivalry + parent offspring conflit

    + culture (not a clue tbh)

    squishing it down to this has really helped me tbh
    theyre the bones, if in doubt, make the flesh up, s'what i'll be doing :')
