    I do Schizophrenia too, Just noticed Issues of reliability and diagnosis has never come up as a past paper question!
    I think it will be a 24 mark question on classification and diagnosis or a 24 mark question on issues of reliability and validity

    It wasn't brilliant for me, but a lot of the people who re-sat it today with me (at my school) all said it was worse for them than it was for January, so don't worry

    The exam was amazing!! I did sleep, relationships and aggression, i think that i may have messed the evaluation up abit as i didn't have many IDAs but i still put quite a lot of points down. The essays that i planned in a lot if detail as they were my predictions came up i was nearly in shock when i saw the paper! So pleased!

    Now to move onto the PSYA4 revision I'm doing parapsychology and phobias definitely not looking forward this exam!

    I did relationships, aggression and gender.
    The questions asked for relationships were really good, but the culture question was weird as I didn't know if I should just talk about research :/
    I didn't answer the 4 marker on aggression, but the 20 marker was good- I only wrote about twin and adoption studies and then evaluated it..
    Gender was horrible I ran out of time so I didn't even get a chance to answer it!

    High five! I did those three questions. For me the culture part of relationships was my worst section. I do biology so I loved the aggression essay!! Haha

    Btw have you tried to estimate your marks yet?
