    Okay so I'm making notes on insomnia as we speak. So the spec says explanations for insomnia including primary and secondary insomnia. But primary insomnia has no underlying cause, so where's the AO1 for that?
    its not only causes, you can also just describe what it is, So here are some of the points i learnt:

    • Primary insomnia is where there is no physical cause of the disorder etc....
    • the most severe form of insomnia is Idiopathic or Fatal insomnia, however there is no cure so people must learn to live with it
    • A life event can often cause primary insomnia, however even when the life event goes away, the insomnia may stay due to bad habbits learnt, causeing you to get stuck in a viscous cycle


    - That, + the ao1 for secondary insomnia + the ao1 for outlining studies should be enough for the 9 ao1 marks

    Never heard of it lol, you could still include it as a separate explanation of insomnia

    It's basically where people associate 'bed time cues' with not sleeping so insomnia becomes conditioned.

    If primary insomnia refers to insomnia that is not caused by any known physical or mental condition. Then I guess you could say it's a primary insomnia.

    For the group displays topic do you need to know two examples of it? I've only learnt lynch mobs and I'm not sure if I have to learn sporting events.

    Thanks.

    We did Lynch mobs and Sports events (Xenophobia)
    or our book also has religious rutuals in it
    you do need to learn a second one, but there is not much on sports events

    Nice one, I actually logged out before this was posted and I finally got the bit about 'no apparent cause' and it being an isolated cause thanks again!

    They say that's normally part of primary insomnia, because when nothing else is apparent, the person has learnt to expect a bad night's sleep from previous stress and frustration. Ergo, they can't sleep because they have learned not to expect it.

    Morning??? Mines in the afternoon, surely they are all meant to be at roughly the same time of day?
    Mine's in the morning, but that's only because i've got a French exam in the afternoon so one had to be moved to the morning

    Has anyone got any ideas on predictions for gender questions?
    In January my psychology teacher predicted a few possibilities:
    -Cultural differences in gender
    -Evolutionary explanations of gender roles
    -Small question on androgny

    None of those came up though, has anyone got any ideas on how likely they are/other possibilities?
    Obviously i'll try and revise everything, but a little push in the (hopefully) right direction would be good

    Perhaps they could ask to 'Discuss the relationship between sexual selecton and human reproductive behaviour.' That is a practice question that one of my revision guides gives

    Here is a sample essay on that, its not mine, someone posted it to me, not sure how good it is though, i haven't read through it properly yet.

    Hope this helps!
    I've seen this essay thanks anyway!
