    It's mad! Do we actually have to know all the studies in detail and key issues as we knew them from the previous approaches?! Way too much info if we do :eek: I have a specification but it doesn't specify how many marks worth of info we need for all of it so i don't know whether to learn them briefly or overload my brain with all of it ha. Anyone else wondering the same? X
    This is what I remember from teacher - but don't quote me on it!

    Research methods: 2 - 6 marks per Q
    might be... describe and evaluate a field study

    Ethics: 6 marks if it just on human/animal ethical guidelines, up to 18 if it focuses on one topic

    Key Issue/Debates/Contributions: could be the 12/18marks

    Then the plan a study won't be more than 12

    I'm just reading over my notes and spider diagrams really

    So, how did people find the exam? Not too bad eh?!
    I think I may have just scraped an A, but I lost a lot of marks through misreading the very poorly written question for the Criminology section.

    Was this the one about media violence? My friend found that question a little off-putting but I didn't mind, the last question on child annoyed me.

    People here doing Clinical and key issues? I'm on an A (got 92, 90 and 83 or something % in the 3 previous units) and I've not yet started revising (exam Tues). I've got 2 other exams on Monday and I'm wondering will I be ok starting day before on Monday and still doing well? Not like I've got much more time anyway but if its not possible to go over it all in 8 hours or so i'll start tomorrow instead? I need an A overall but can probably get a C or B and still get A? Thanks

    If those numbers you gave me are correct you'll need... 60%, so an exact C.

    I think it's likely that a plan a study question won't come up cus it came up as an essay question last June, BUT don't take my word for it. I'm not gonna bother revising that part.

    In that case I will attach the papers to a post when I get onto my computer. You'll have to be patient whilst I finish my breakfast I'm afraid.

    Good question! They tend to give you the aim so I would turn that into my hypothesis, then it will give you a choice between three research methods and then you just have to explain how you'd do it and why you were do it that way.

    e.g I would do a lab exp because it has controls and this will increase reliability and validity.


    Our mock Q was something along the lines of
    "You want to conduct a study into most effective way of revising - cramming or long term revision. Explain how you would research this using either a lab exp, a field exp or a field study and evaluate your choices"

    Hahaha, unless I train a high-speed carrier pigeon to deliver it, I don't think it would arrive in time.

    Don't worry about it. I'm just as unsure about my answer tbh, so I tried to cover everything. I talked about the secure attachment, how it was most popular, how the child would react in the different stages of the strange situation. Then when t why we do them (cultural studies I said about why we do them (understanding cultural differences with child-rearing, investigating universal behaviour, the nature/nurture debate) and then wrote in detail about Germany and Israel attachment types, with percentages of their most common and elements of their society which may lead to those attachment types.

    Does anyone have any idea on what will come up? I've just started revision today as I have so many, more important exams Well looking at the last paper, I'm assuming this one is going to be mainly about depression? What are the chances of schizoprenia coming up again? Seems unlikely.

    Thanks

    Also, you don't have to name studies in evaluation do you? I think my teacher said you didn't, and you simple say, "One study suggests..."

    Thanks again
