    I'm revising for the AQA A Unit 3 Psychology exam; one of the sub-topics in 'Aggression' is about instituional explanations of aggression. My text book focuses on two explanations of aggression in prisons, which is obviously only one type of institution. If I got a question in the exam asking me to talk about two types of explanation could I give two that both refer to prisons (incidentally, they are the 'deprivation' and 'importation' models/theories) or should I try and research some more that apply to other types of institution?

    Hi, I'm revising the same thing as you and i yes i would do the deprivation model and importation model but those are only part of the 'within group' aggression section. I would probably talk about the aggression 'between groups' and refer to a RWA -eg, Rwanda genocide or holocaust.

    Good Luck Xx

    Alternatively, you could talk about hospitals I believe. It's always good to have little extras to add in

    Sadly, institutional aggression came up last year so I'll be surprised if it comes up again. Though of course I'll still revise it! Think I could have done quite well on that one

    oh how annoying, i really wanted it to come up aswell!
    Although last year, I didn't revise a whole topic for History because it had come up on the two previous papers but then it came up again and I couldn't take the exam! So yeah, can't make that mistake again haha.
