    Depends how well you know it! But my teacher thinks a mark a minute is a good guideline. So section a, which is worth 60 marks, should take about an hour really.

    But yeah, if you know it well enough to only take half an hour then well done!

    guys, do you think that mentioning 3 advantages and disadvantages of a approach won't do any harm if you have the time? or would it be best to stick to just two?

    because i usually have ages on the last section.. (well more than i need).. but i feel like if i mention anymore than 2 advantages and disadvantages then its likely that the last 2 will be less detailed and grammatically correct so there's an increased chance that i may get marked down? hmm..

    What do you think will come up for section C
    I dont really like that study too its just that it hasnt come up since such a long time so I thought id revise quite alot of it in detail. I still prefer it to sperry or reicher :eek:
    I think it might be either Psychodynamic, behaviourist, Physiological or maybe even social psychology. Yeah I don't like Reicher, it's annoying. How about u? what might come up?

    I tend to do three if I have time, no harm in a few extra marks eh?

    Strength:
    - uses alot of scientific equipment which makes data less objective such as Maguire uses EEG AND EOGs

    Weakness:
    -it often uses lab experiments which lack ecological validity and mundane realism such as D+K as people dont normally sleep with electrodes attached to their heads
