    ahaha, I Feel you! Damn my English teacher always says that to me, "You need to express yourself" argg. I'm Like how?!! && Thankyou for your advice, Will Do that

    I really hope we get decent studies for section B
    i think Baron-Cohen will come up and Dement and Kleitman (i'm just mostly hoping that this study will come up!) and another study that has low ecological validity... not sure on the third

    For Section B, Will they ask us to evaluate the adv/dis for using a longitudinal or snapshot study? If Yes, Does anyone know what kind of points to write?

    depends with the study, for example, the Maguire study used a snapshot design. however, it would have been more beneficial and valid if a longitudinal design was used, as you are able to measure the change in the brain structure over time

    general advantages and disadvantages:.
    snapshot advantages
    quicker and cheaper to carry out
    doesn't suffer from attrition (loss of participants, for example if they move away or withdraw from the study or fall ill)
    snapshot disadvantages
    poor insight into behaviour
    not useful when studying development

    longitudinal advantages
    useful for investigating development
    good insight into behaviour

    longitudinal disadvantages
    suffer from attrition
    longer and harder to conduct

    Yeah, section C is always the same pretty much. The 12 mark question is always strengths and weaknesses of the approach. Section B is the hardest but just try and do as many model answers as possible and either mark it or give it to your teacher to mark and you should find it easier. I find social psychology kind of easy but will still go over it.


    Has anyone got any model answers that got full marks for the section b on the changes and implication of the changes??Because that would mostly be appreciated thank you as I would come to the exam hardly having the slightest clue what the heck I'll be talking about and because it holds a lot of marks too! I bet it would benefit me including everyone I guess

    I don't have any with marks but I do have some, I'd have to scan them into the computer for you later. But check out www.psychexhange.com and search the resources for section B model answers

    Here's a brief summary of the physiological approach for Section C. For the 12 mark question I have used the PEE format to answer so it's more structured and easier to understand.

    Good question :L probably to have it as a comparison for what people would normally answer without the intervention of the critical verb. Does that make sense?

    That Sucks, Omg hate when that happens >.< Our Teacher Just makes It 10 Times more confusing for us :/ & You still have done a lot though, I Just got cue cards, It takes really long to do one study though && Yea, Some of the backgrounds you don't even know. Background of Freud Is really long, I'm trying to shorten it. It's impossible. I Really Hate section C!! Haven't done that either, Just looked at one approach. I'm Gonna do them later Oh when is you bio exam? Good Luck for that! If That one is closer, focus on that You'll be fine, you still done loads Best of Luck! Hmm, Have a look at the file I Attached, It has loads of info even on the approaches etc

    I find revising for this exam so god damn hard..
    What I find most beneficial is going over a study then writing down everything that you can remember without looking at your notes, then in another coloured pen write things that you missed
