    dont worry i think youve added wrong... last june on unit 4 56/85 was an A*! and jan 11 it was 58/85 for A*, it changes every time but as a rough idea im sure youll be fine if youre just after a B
    57 UMS marks, not RAW marks

    UMS = /100, so...
    A = 80 UMS marks
    B = 70 UMS marks
    C = 60 UMS marks
    D = 50 UMS marks

    ahh i see! looking at it in raw marks seems much more reachable for a higher grade!! youd think half would atleast be a C!

    I only need 30 marks in this paper. But the A03 really messes up for me, I honestly feel like I repeat myself with the whole "Too generalised, reductionist, blah blah' I can't seem to think about other things for A03. /shrug

    IDA includes gender (alpha & beta), cultural (ethnocentric, etic, emic), implications, ethics, use of other approaches, free will/determinism, nature/nurture, reductionism/holism etc.

    It does not include methodological evaluation, which is A03 (unless you obviously relate a problem of the study to IDA)

    I know that feeling, think I need a low D for an A (but trying to aim for a*). A03 is methodology, not IDA (the reductionist point). Remember there is only a 4 Mark A03 allocation, so I wouldn't stress too much you can also talk about why a study is good, EG it's prospective so results are not affected by incorrect recall, therefore this study has great support for XYZ theory

    Oh I see, thankss (: Yeah, I seem to try and look at the negatives of a study way more than the positives.

    How much is IDA actually worth?
    I have the balance sorted but I think I am saying a little less on the IDA.

    I usually leave it to the end...for example

    This is reductionist beacuase.....
    This is not generalisable....
    self imposed etic....
    Nature/Nurture (diathesis stress model)...

    Would a sentence or two for each of those (if applicable) be enough?

    Thanks for the help guys!

    For a B, you need 280 marks overall. This means you need 120 marks TOGETHER in PSYA3&4, so average 60 UMS in each (that's a low C).
    Good luck!

    In a full 25 marker, it is 9 for AO1, and 16 for AO2. 4 of the AO2 marks come from IDA, but you need to have a mention of them to get into the higher grade bands.

    So basically: AO1- 9 marks
    AO2 (Methodological evaluation)- 12 marks
    AO2/3 (IDA)- 4 marks


    Hope that helps? Aha, I'm only going for a C though, take what I say with a pinch of salt...

    You've got 82 + 78 = 160 already.
    So you need 120 more UMS marks to get the overall 280 required for a B grade
    (So two low C grades in each exam).
