    So glad my predictions came up - they were all I had learnt!!! Just hope the grade boundaries won't be too high now...
    I wouldnt base high grade boundaries off the responses from people from one thread... and besides lets hope they are low

    I just put about how Androgynous were aschematic or something and related it back to psychological health and flexibility. Cross cultual I just mentioned the similarities and differences, mentioned a few reserachers and evaluated their work. Hopefully, I'll pick up a few marks....

    I still can't believe I put genetics in aggression. :facepalm:
    I think this paper went better than the January one, but AQA are so hard to guage. Aaagh. I wish results came sooner, tbh.

    I'm really worried that I wrote about the wrong thing on 'outline the nature of sleep.' I spoke about sleep in infancy, childhood, adolescence and adulthood (ran out of time for old people.)

    If I have written about the wrong stuff, do you think AQA will possibly mark it as if it were right, as I know many people who wrote about the same stuff, and the question was extremely vague!!!

    Should an answer about hormones and neural machanisms include genetic studies? :|

    I thought it was about the testosterone, PMS, serotonin etc but I heard a few students say that they talked about genes too...

    Sounds to me like that's NOT function of sleep, so you really can't have gone wrong, personally I've never written about sleep through the life cycle, but I would say it would make could be write to write about that...

    No point worrying now anyway, they're over and it's in the past

    No, I'm 100% sure you had to write about testosterone, serotonin etc! You could've brung up genetics at the end as an alternative explanation

    In my textbook, they say that 'Discuss' is to provide a reasonable, balanced account.
    It said consider...

    I don't know....

    I think the nature of sleep question will have thrown some people.
    The aggression question was good, but some people (me) stupidly mentioned gentetics. Also, gender was just awful.

    I did Biorhythms, Aggression & Eating... thought it went okay but I'm really unsure about the amount of A02/A03 I got in totally ran out of time.
    I did the sleep stages for the nature of sleep but loooooads of people in my college wrote about functions of sleep & lifespan changes in sleep. The consider the consequences of disruption to bio rhythms was horrible i thought! how much evaluation can you do for that!?
    I thought aggression was okay - wrote about dopamine & testosterone
    eating was decent but I just hope i get the grade.
    Need an A in this exam to get into uni Hoping for low grade boundaries!

    Everyone at my school said they found it really easy, and I feel like the only one that didn't! And I need an A! Aargh! Stress!

    Anyway, do you think it was OK to put about the sleep-wake cycle for "the nature of sleep" question? Plus I had no issues or debates for the second part (the consequences of disrupting biological rhythms) so I'm pretty sure I failed the sleep essay. I found the relationships question hard as well. The aggression one was the only one I felt OK with!
