    I've noticed that they ask questions on explanations (coincidence/probability/superstition/magical thinking/personality) EVERY year, sometimes more than once. But haven't asked about the study of anomalous experience(ganzfeld/pk/pseudoscience) or research in to exceptional experience (NDE/OOBE/psychicmediumship/healing) as much...
    They haven't asked any questions on psychic healing specifically or near death experience alone yet so that is definitely a possibility. Anomalistic is so difficult to guess for... they seem to throw in quite a few questions which can be beneficial for those of us that are doing it. I know I'm babbling on so I'll stop lol hope this has been even a little helpful.
    thanks, i am normally quite good at guessing but this time i just have no clue and i find anomalistic so boring so its really hard to remember all the info. whats the most likely to come up do you think?

    ugh I agree it's so boring, I'm finding it very difficult to question spot but I think that psychic healing or near death experience will come up as well as coincence/personality and possibly PK/ganzfeld I know that doesn't really narrow it down by much but yeah I think around 4 questions will be asked?

    I'm trying to get an A* i re-sat PSYA2 to try and get full UMS but I am happy if i manage to get an A . I'm hopeful the resit went OK but someones phone went off during the exam so they have reported it to the exam board and i don't know how that will affect the results. its hard at the moment though because i have C4 maths on tuesday as well!

    Good luck!

    research methods is hard to predict for but similar questions tend to come up each time and it is mainly the 8 or 10 marker that changes and i don't do the other units sorry

    Hi, I am doing Depression/addiction/research methods as well. I read somewhere on the forums that for depression treatments are likely to come up as they have not been asked before. But, for addiction I don't know :confused: whereas research methods anything could come up

    Yeah I think so - you could probably combine them together and it'd make sense

    any of you guys know how whats the diff in ao1 and evaluation in models of addiction, ah seems like a stupid question but i dont get it!
    A01 is basically describing the model and giving all the studies
    A02 is evaluating by explaining type of research methods (pros and cons) used, reductionism, determinism, nature/nurture, validity, reliability etc
    Quiet simple really when you get the pattern.
