    I would love biological explanations, even better if it was two questions, one on biological and the other on psychological explanations.
    Fingers crossed that explanations come up this year. I don't trust AQA anymore after they repeated the same questions from June 2012 in January!

    Aqa are really repetitive!! In English lit everyone was expecting prose to come up but they done poems again when prose hasn't come up since 2011!!

    I'm doing addiction and research methods. How about you?

    Correctly predicted what would come up, with the exception of the group displays question (but that was only 4marks).
    Think I spent too long on Aggression, did alright on Relationships, but I ran out of time and had to bulletpoint all of Sleep. :|

    That exam went pretty well! How did everyone else find it? And what did anyone write for cultural differences in relationships?

    Not too bad a paper, so glad group displays wasn't a 24 mark because that would have been impossible for me! How did you guys find it?

    I winged the question on sleep (only talking about jet lag) do you think il lose marks for not talking about shift work? It didn't specify to though.
    The aggression question was great! But I didn't answer group displays as knew nothing for it.
    But I only talked about psychological explanations of anorexia and ran out of time so probably less than half marks on that one :/.

    The aggression questions were brilliant! I got a bit confused on my psychological explanations of an eating disorder though. But other than that the gender question was also really good! Hopefully the grade boundaries will stay low.

    Well, VERY happy with the relationships questions, my predictions were spot on Struggled a bit with Eating and Sleep, but hey-ho I wrote more of better quality (I think) than I did in January, so that can only mean I did better right, and that's the point of a re-sit :P

    I found this paper good but so did everyone else. Still think grade boundaries will be as low as they usually are?

    I'm slightly concerned grade boundaries will be higher, but if they are going to be it won't be a huge difference. Although everyone on this forum found it okay, it's only a handful off people so perhaps everyone else found it harder we just don't know.. I was the only one in my class that got on ok.. So who knows
