Hello, just wondering if anyone else is doing this paper and how their revision is going
I've done a lot of practise on section A (procedure) so i should be okay on that but still a bit confused on observations and self report methods :/
Haven't done that much work on section B but not too sure what could come up

Section A questions on correlations and self reports are highly unlikely to come up on the Feb exam, because both of them have already come up on the previous 2 exams.... according to my teacher.

yeah my teacher said the same about correlation unlikely to come up
For section B, in the last 2 exams they have had a question on an approach, but i'm not sure if they will again. There are so many topics that could come up under approaches, perspectives, methods, issues & debates :/ no idea how we're supposed to learn them and answer 8 mark questions on them.

edit: just found quite a good document, gives some examples/studies you can use for section B

I'm doing this exam too, correlation is much harder on section A than experiments, i find it hard to come up with things to do for correlation so as far as section A goes I'll be hoping for experiment!

Section B it would be great if ethics came up but I don't think it will because it was on one of the past papers

I'm doing the exam as well.. but I'm unsure about the debates, for example, the nature-nurture debate, would they ask for strengths and weaknesses of the whole debate or just one part like nature?

I think they will make it specific in that situation like strengths/weaknesses of just nature side of the debate.

Going by past papers they tend to ask questions like, 'how does the physiological approach support to the nature debate'

I hope debates do not come up, least interesting. I think it will be a perspective.
