    Erm, it's getting there. Out of the 13 topics, I know 3 off by heart, but I only started two days a go! and gone through all the rest, so hopefully everything will be fine How are you doing?

    Specifically I predict: Biological therapies and intense fandom to come up!!

    Same, I started revising two days before the exam but seemed to go through everything and know it in detail; it seems stress leads to pretty amazing production! I also predicted all three questions that came up and now am confident I hit my A* :dance:

    Are all 4 psychology units added up to give you a final A2 grade? Or are just PYA3 and PSA4 counted as A2??

    Each unit, including AS, is 25% towards your final A2 grade.

    so the majority of you believe biological explanations will come up...or biological therapies/treatments for schizohprenia?

    what about media? some of you say intense fandom?

    feb- 2010- video games and psychology explanations of the attraction of celebrity

    feb 2011- psychological explanations of media influence on pro-social behaviour
    celebrity worhsip on young people (small marks)
    effectiveness of television in persuasion

    so for sure intense fandom will come up? (hope so)

    i wrote about it as a whole explanation, then a little on testosterone and all that. so you think the stuff i wrote on brain structure will get marks for?
    probably A02, because it suggests an opposing explanation, even if it is still biological like testosterone. But you might have had to be explicit about it tho...hope fully we both got some extra marks for it ... lol

    My Teacher says there is a chance that Cognitive Dissonance could come up cause they are getting rid of it next year. So it might be worth going over that too..

    100% positive, otherwise what would be the point of AS? I hope this isn't too bad news for you AS and A2 are worth 50% each.

    Sometimes the exam boards are *******s and repeat questions; so you'll have to revise everything in order to be able to answer to a decent level. Do focus slightly more on the predicted stuff, as usually SOMETHING comes up, but don't disregard everything else...

    In the last psychology exam I predicted each question, at AS though I mucked up big time and got a B; which of course isn't bad but I can do better >_>

    Yes, it is the same for all subject, each year is worth 50%, but sometimes the modules within the year may be worth, for example, 20% and 30% of the total grade. But I know the weighting for psychology is equal, so 25% for each exam.

    I'm glad it's good news!

    Hello!

    I know this question has been asked like a million times (sorry)

    but I'm seriously freakin out, only had a chance to start revision on Friday after two exams that da. FML.

    What do you think could possibly come up in Depression? I had a look for Jan exam paper and couldn't find it, AQA suck.

    It would be a huge help!


    Thanks

    Thank you so much for answering. I can't believe I didn't know this before . So when a university requires for example AAB to get it, is that the average grade for both years or just this year?

    Sorry to interupt

    But may I ask what you put for the question on sleep?
    The second part...I know it does not really matter but I dont know whether I did it right or not, I did jet lag, shift work and sleep deprivation.

    Thanks and sorry for the trouble!
    I didn't do that question! I was on perception, aggression and gender.
