    Im studying the same topics.. what grade are you after?
    Well I would ideally like an A but I just know that's not going to happen! So I'm just aiming for a B as can still get into uni with that, plus would also be happy with that!
    Just so much to remember, just really hope there are some decent questions!

    Anyone got any notes/essays on Sleepwalking? I have a feeling that if a sleep disorder comes up it may be this one as it has never done so before.

    If it comes up twice in a row, I might just have to live in an underground hole with badger friends, for the rest of my life.

    What happens if you don't include the psychologists name for the research? I'm dreadful at remembering names for psychologists and get the names get confused with all types of studies? Can you lose marks for saying something like 'Research has sugggested that...' or 'Psychologists have found that....' for AO2? Also, I'm doing Relationships, Aggression and Eating Disorder (Anorexia) and need 58 UMS to get a B overall for Psychology so is that easy to get? What marks will I need in each of the three essays?

    Thanks

    I have officially decided I am going to make up psychologist's names and some studies if I forget or need to bulk up my essay - examiners can't know everyone

    I'm doing aggression and sleep/bio rhythms! Ahh I didn't know aqa were unpredictable, I was planning to learn predictions only, crap! Late night cramming for me! What are you doing?
    i'm doing aggression, relationships and eating behaviours.
    AQA are apparently realising many people are coming into the psychology exams unprepared so they're not doing split questions (two 12 markers instead of one whole 24 marker) just to catch us out even more.

    It's really unfair. Cover everything, make essay plans on those which are less likely to come up but make sure you do essays for those predicted.

    Good luck

    Nothing personal of course, but how do you know that's the case for AQA not doing 12 markers. Where did you hear that information from? (Not having a go, as I would absolutely love that to be the case).

    I've been told that you don't get marks for the names as long as you put the study in enough detail but if you put the wrong name you will be marked down. Im doing Sleep, relationships and aggression, I'm freakish out so much for this exam as i did it in January and thought it went well but obviously not as here i am doing it again!
