    Hi Guys

    Could anyone who took this paper in January and/or Unit 4 tell me what questions came out if you remember so i could use them as practice? or if anyone has a copy of the exam or examiner's report?

    Im doing:

    PsyA3:

    Relationships
    Aggression
    Eating Behaviour

    PsyA4:

    Schizophrenia
    Anomalistic Psychology
    Research Methods.

    Thanks for your help
    Same topics apart from Agression, I am doing bio rhythms

    The questions in Jan for psy A3 were...

    1) for eating behaviour it was about the biological explanations and explaining the choices for food, i.e. religion etc. It was seperated in two questions, equall marks on each.

    2) for relationships it was outline and explain 2 or more explanations for the formation of relationships..an absolute gift of a question which I did very good on!

    Messed up on the bio rhythms and ended up on an E...not good not good at all

    yeah i finished memorising, now i just gotta memorise some more 'high quality notes'

    Exactly what is ao3? out teacher told us to ignore ao3 and just do

    ao1
    ao2
    and IDA
    Actually A03 methodological evaluation, though most teachers credit this as A02 and put everything together. If you have your 4 A03 marks, they don't disregard any other methodological evaluation, it just goes to A02 instead, so that's probably why your teacher says to ignore it

    Anyone doing this exam?

    I did this exam in Jan 2010, and got 77 UMS (B). I retook Unit 4 in my year out this January, and got 99 UMS (A)! So I'm retaking Unit 3 so I can get the A* (I was only 4 UMS off!)

    What topics are people doing? I am doing;
    - Sleep
    - Eating disorders
    - Relationships

    How are people feeling about this exam?

    Hi, i've noticed you did this exam in jan 2011. Do you happen to remember the questions that came up on the paper for either relationships, sleep and perception?
    I t would be rly helpful for me to know.
    Thanks.

    Fab, thank you. I've found the paper now so i've got perception sorted.
    And, that must be annoying...good luck for next time!
    Thanks again for the help!

    Hi guys any predictions for the questions you think we are going to get?

    I have a feeling by look all the questions which have come out in specmines/past that:

    Relationships is going to be something about the influences from childhood and adolesence on adult relationships

    and for eating behaviour i predict that we are going to be asked to discuss the evolutionary explanation of eating behaviour.

    Although, most past papers have questions of 2 parts so they could ask us on more than one topic per unit.

    Anyone else tried to predict? haha

    Does anyone have any notes on the breakdown of relationships? Mine aren't too good and as it hasn't come out yet, it seems like quite a possible question.

    Thanks

    Does anyone know if they can ask us about parent-child relationships and interaction with peers separately or whether it will be a more general question on childhood or adolescent relationships in which we will be required to talk about both?

    Thanks.

    The influence of childhood and adolescent experiences on adult relationships,
    including parent-child relationships and interaction with peers

    Thats from the specification, so i assume they CAN ask seperate, but i highly doubt there will be a 25 mark on just one
    there could be a 6 mark on just one though.

    I was just worried as I've hardly got any information on interaction with peers, but you're probably right - if they were to ask a question it would probably only be for a few marks. Thanks!
