    Nah I'm dreading RM too, especially the design a study question, and picking an appropriate test, I mean I know which tests are high and low to reject null hypothesis, but actually working the test out....no not a chance. Getting up tomorrowmat 6 to go over qualitative/quanta give data.

    Anyone doing media - any predictions? I can't for the life of me remember anything about video games affected anti/pro-social behaviour. Should just accept that Im screwed..

    Please may someone send me their notes on addiction, especially on Theory of planned behaviour as I really don't understand it!

    Phew! Not the only one then, I feel better How did you find the January exam? I just found this particular exam so difficult! I mean, I get As in my other subjects, but struggle so much in psychology! Then again, I think a lot of people do because the grade boundaries are ridiculously low (such as the Jan one, 50% for a B)!
    January exam was really hard, but found this one much easier. How did you do on it?

    I think I did better than I did in January, but I don't think I did fantastically well So if everyone else found it easier, it means the grade boundaries are higher, and I'm likely to get the same UMS as January... *sigh* Hoping PSYA4 will save me somehow!

    Hi guys,
    I'm doing the PSYA4 exam on 17th June for Psychology... the topics I'm currently studying are Research methods, Depression and Addiction topics.... does anyone have any predictions for these topics? Also, is it possible to get an A grade if you answer just 2 of the 3 topics, but in very good detail?
    Cheers

    I sat PSYA3 in January and answered one of the three questions. As you could expect, U. I thought that the one on Monday was great! Any tips from anyone for this Mondays exam? If you're writing essay plans then you only have to do it for 2 topics so that's a bonus i guess!

    Hey, to anyone else studying addiction for PSYA4, seeing as Theory of Reasoned Action isn't in the specification anymore and there's nowhere near enough information on the Theory of Planned Behaviour to write a 24 mark essay on, how are you revising for it?! Are we allowed to basically outline the TRA and then just add in the perceived behavioural control bit to make it into the TPB? I'm so confused, it just seems to be much too small of a topic for a 24 mark question but I don't want to risk not knowing it :/

    Same topics as me :}
    PREDICTIONS
    Depression --> therapies
    Addiction --> theory of planned behaviour
    RM --> no idea, sorry D:

    here's the grade boundarieshttp://store.aqa.org.uk/over/stat_pd...OUND-JAN13.PDF

    To get an A you need 53/83 aprox
    if you ace depression + addictions you only get 24+24 so 48 (and that's if you ace them). But if you do research methods and one of them and ace them then yes. But that's very difficult to do :P
    So try and do well in 2 but then do a bit for the third topic too
    Hope that helps :P

    Anyone have any notes on video games for media - despise that section and the book is pretty rubbish :confused:
    I'm doing media and hate it to I completely failed the media section in January.... Haha!
    All I have note wise ATM for video games (not gne over yet) is this:

    Prosocial Behaviour and Games
    1. Gentile et al-increases in short and long term, over 3—4 months, using 3 studies and 3 age groups, 2009
    2. Obesity-the Wii burns calories but 4x less than real exercise but builds confidence
    3. MSN-88% teens do because it is a buffer from shyness and adolescent stressors


    Antisocial behaviour and Games (Anderson)
    1. Experimental-arousal (bp, heart rate), hostile feelings (self-report measures) and aggressive behaviour (white noise, hostility scale) measured with slow-paced puzzle and first-person shooter
    2. Correlation-600 teenagers have more aggressive feelings, teacher arguments and physically fights with more games, regardless of personality type
    3. Longitudinal-430 7—9 year olds do 2 surveys in a year and were rated by their selves, peers and teachers (more exposure means more verbal and physical aggression)
    4. Meta-Analysis-link between games and aggression


    It doesn't make much sense to me at the mo... So good luck :L

    Aqa are unpredictable, but therapies for depression haven't come up in a little while I don't think. Jan was clinical characteristics and diagnosis issues
