    Lifespan changes can still get credit, it's relevant to the nature of sleep

    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?
    Universities offers are for A levels which means the combination of both A2 and AS....= your total A level grade for the subject. For example I got a C for AS and UCL want me to get either A or B in this (my offer is AAB). To get a B I need to get 160 UMS altogether in A2 to get the required total UMS for a B overall.

    Hope this helps. It took me a while to understand as well!

    Unforunately you need names to get the highest marks. They aren't massively important but it is worth remembering. If you only need a C Saf, don't worry because I think you almost definitely have it.
    ohh man I think i wrote maybe 5 names.. Eating behaviour had no studies with psychologists names! unfair. I still knew the info just not the names

    Don't worry it's not THAT important, it only helps, you'll still get credit for the studies.

    Sorry to say this but the nature of sleep is all EEG and the 5 stages of sleep. Since you talked about lifespan changes, I think you'll be lucky to get 3 marks put of 9 - at max.

    Just a message to all those worrying, NAMES ARE NOT IMPORTANT OR ESSENTIAL TO OBTAIN THE HIGHEST GRADES. Provided you explain the theory and the nature of the theory you will be credited. (: x

    Psychology UNIT 4 PREDICTIONS for tomorrow
    Hey, I'm doing media and schizophrenia and personally, I predict:

    MEDIA- Either, intense fandom, cognitive dissonance & self perception or persuasion and attitude. Have a strong feeling it will be intense fandom though!

    MEDIA- Biological explanations, biological treatments or both treatments. I have a feeling it may be biological treatments!


    & if they asked you a question on biological treatments, could you use psychological therapies as an alternative?!?!

    They help convince the examiner you know what you're on about. So yes, they are actually helpful to remember.

    I'm not saying that they're not helpful, I'm just informing you that they're not ESSENTIAL, e.g. you won't lose marks if you forget the names provided you give details of the study in-depth. (:

    Oh no, of course not, you can only gain marks in an exam. If you're aiming for an A or A* though, you need to remember names :P There is only so much marks an examiner can give you for information.

    Provided you don't miss out the key theories and Psychologist names, that's fine. Apart from that, you don't get marked down. x
