    Did anyone say they would do a pilot study to find out what questions were appropriate to use before conducting the real study using a final questionnaire? This is what I wrote, it seemed to add a bit more detail and made me answer longer, do people think this was okay to do? I just had a brain wave during the exam to say I would first do a pilot study

    Very true haha and that's really reassuring (: Ah jeez, really?? The fact that you finished it all with 5 minutes to spare is really impressive!! I started my exam by doing the 12 marker and went a little overboard writing 3 pages messed up my timings for everything else lol. When I reached 45 minutes I had to move onto section A even though 8e was incomplete. I managed to finish it all in the end though which is all that matters!
    3 pages!? Wow, that's impressive! I tend not to listen to the whole 45/45 thing, because section A usually doesn't tale me any more than 30-35, which is pretty helpful for section B! Anyway, if we finished in the end, then that's not a problem however you do the paper

    I didn't include a pilot study but now I'm wishing I had! I am sure you will pick up marks for that as it is applicable to questionnaires

    Totally the same for me, options did not go as well, the questions in options were good, I just ran out of time, and only really half answered two of the 15 markers! Oh well, hopefully I have made up for it in this exam What grade are you hoping to achieve?

    My distracted question was 'do you have any siblings? If so, how many?" And urm no I don't think so, atleast not intentionally haha! But all these damned studies are so imprinted on my brain I probably used them without thinking haha
    Lol yours was alot better

    yeah I was hoping for a question on stress and there wasn't one, not in january or june, so that was slightly annoying. Yeah hopefully! I got an A at AS so I am aiming for an A overall, you?

    I know, OCR are very devious in not putting stress in there twice in a row! I also got an A for AS, so I would love an A over all too, however after options I am really doubting that I will but I guess I will just have to wait until results day, there is nothing I can do now. I only need a B in it for university anyway so I won't be too devastated if I don't get the A

    That's good, hope you get your A, i'd like an A too personally but i'm not sure i've got one, but even if I get a B, i'm happy cause it'll *fingers crossed* be enough for me to get an A overall

    Does anyone know if I would lose many marks for the strengths and weaknesses part of section B if I only used two studies in depth and then one other study? This is for case studies bdw

    It depends ideally they expect you to use 3 different studies but it depends on the quality of your answer

    Ohhh, well I couldn't really think of many studies that use case studies :/ it just didn't come to me at the time. I think my answers were detailed enough except I used Thigpen and Cleckley quite a lot as well as Freud and then mentioned Phineas Gage :/ forgot about Brunner

    I did stress for part a! Did you have to do a pilot study and what did people put for the further research?

    Also for N/N on part b, what did people put on the E?
