    Hi,

    For the following questions I'm looking for I will rep very much for them!!!

    For those who did AQA PSYA3 a few days ago, what were the questions for:

    biological rhythms
    relationships
    eating behaviour
    cognitive
    intelligence
    gender
    agression

    (phrased as accurate to the paper as possible please +number of marks for each part where applicable)

    EDIT: Sorry! My psychology teacher lied, she told me psya4 was today. :rolleyes:

    Please! :p: (I'm taking both exams in the June). This is for PSYA3 AQA taken January 2010 I'm looking for.

    Of course, if you somehow have the paper itself to scan...

    Thank you!

    Was it just the one 25 mark question then? And was there any writing before it to introduce it or was it just the question? Thanks.

    The question on the paper for relationships was pretty much as stated above by david_man, for 25 marks. There was a lengthy quote before hand, though I'm afraid I can't remember it.

    Relatioships:
    ' Men are concerned withspreading their genes, whilst females look for resources' ( its not the exact phrasing, obviously I was more concerned with the actual question than the phrase at the beginning but that was pretty much it.
    "Outline and evaluate evolutionary explanations into parental investment" (25 mars). (e.g. sex differences, parent off-spring conflict)


    Gender:
    Outline the biological and psychological explanations of gender development (9 marks).
    Discuss and evaluate which, the biological or the psychological explanation is better' (16 marks).

    That sounds like it would make more sense- even though I didn't do agression.
