    Yeah handed in the logbook. My teacher asked for one of the answer sheets a participant wrote on...? I have no idea why
    Apparently the SQA can ask for them in the future to check you did it... also, for confidentiality reasons, the teacher keeps them so that you don't just throw them out, or let others see.... that's what we were told anyway...

    I hope I don't have to hand in all of my answer sheets because I altered some of the participant answers slightly to make it work!

    Is the course hard? I'm going to study it with openlearning so basically self-study but what is it like? Is it similair to any aspects of biology?
    I wouldn't say its hard because its quite interesting will i think anyway but the amount of information you need to learn is a lot. Good luck

    So what kind of questions could they ask you on reduction of prejudice? It's been awhile since that was a question.

    Thought I'd bump this to see how you're all feeling. I am actually very confident with this subject, my only worry is how particular the markers will be. I have noticed some textbooks offer different results from each other in experiments.

    I really hope the paper is similar to 2009 in that the sections are somewhat split up as opposed to a bunch of big 20 markers and an itty bitty part on research methods.

    It's my last exam so I am not prepared for it at all yet and I only have four days after Biology to revise for it. I feel ok with the knowledge, but I don't know hardly any of the studies. The only ones I know well are Milgram and Asch. I'm going to have to cram it in in the four days! The format of the paper was changed last year so it'll be similar to that. Hopefully I'll get a good mark in my R.I to bring up my grade.

    I feel confident overall, I have never studied a subject so consistently in my life, I find it massively interesting so I'm not too scared of the final exam. However, if the SQA pull that "strategies for resisting social pressures/coercion" question out again, I will gently weep at my desk. Milgram is perfect for any obedience question, you can go all out on so many aspects of it, Asch and Sherif too I suppose.

    I'm relieved to hear the format has changed, as I prefer the splitting up of sections, eg 2 Questions on Early Socialisation, one worth 12, and the other 8. I reckon its a fairer test of your knowledge and is not as daunting as a massive 20 mark essay.

    So, Biology over... finally Psychology. Got a lot to learn before Monday. It's so annoying how you have to memorise pages and pages and then you get tested on a fraction of it!

    Awwww, SAME i absolutely despise that strategies for resisting social pressures/coercion question, i'm risking it and not learning about that because it was in last year, just praying it doesn't come up again....

    I've looked at strategies since then, Kohlberg is a good one to know. It's worth looking into Milgram and the variants of his study - the presence of another teacher (confederate) who refused to shock lowered the levels of obedience to 10%.

    I just hope it goes like this:

    Early Socialisation:

    1) Describe and evaluate the Behaviourist and Psychoanalytic approaches of attachment. (12)
    2) Briefly describe and evaluate Mary Ainsworth's contribution to our understanding of attachment (8)

    Memory:

    1) Describe and evaluate the Multi-Store model of memory with research evidence (10)
    2) Describe and evaluate Loftus research into Eye Witness Testimony (10)

    Research Methods - whatever

    Conformity and Obedience

    1) Describe social and group influences on conformity and obedience with reference to research studies (20)

    Intelligence

    1) Compare and contrast 2 different theories of intelligence.

    That would be an AWESOME paper!

    Also, do you reckon that years and accurate results are required in the exam? So many studies were done in the 1960s across all units and its hard to remember them all.

    My teacher said there's no chance eye-witness testimony will come up because it was in the exam last year.

    Aha, fair enough. So it's more likely to be theories of forgetting, do you think? Or techniques to help us remember?

    Yes, she said it's likely to be theories of forgetting and maybe the differences between STM and LTM in terms of capacity, duration, etc.

    Might sound like a stupid question but what would you write for the conformity and obediance that you just wrote....

    I agree, i don't think it will come up... I am so sure its going to be theories of forgetting and multi store model :yep:, might be wrong though

    You would mention: obedient setting, percieved authority, graduated commitment, potential contractual obligation, the agentic state, and I'm sure I've forgot some. Most of them are in Milgram, so study up on that because there is so much to say

    Hi guys, might sound like a silly question but can someone predict what will come up for Conformity and Obedience, Research Methods, Memory and Early Socialisation. (Basically the paper) Because It is my worst subject, no clue about it all and would just like to take a massive risk and study small parts of the course for the final exam and if it doesnt happen then just hope my other exams go well! Thanks!!
