    were there questions on the back of the paper?
    Nope After Q 28 (which was the last of the Research Method questions), it said 'end of questions'. So, no worries on that front!

    Can someone write down what the research methods questions were please? Not specific or anything just what area the question was in general, doesn't have to be all of them either. Seem to have forgotten most other than 3 of them. Would be much appreciated

    Thanks!

    I think that may have been from psychology B as I know some people who did that paper instead of A and they were talking about a type of validity question, two tailed questions and a correlation statistical test & the replication question was the last one x

    I doubt experienced police drivers will need protection from psychological harm if they witnessed hazards as they probably see them all the time as part of their job!
    I didn't say they would but it's the only one I could apply to the situation given, calm down :')

    Because the level of significance was 0.01 meaning that there was a 99% chance that they hadn't made an error and was right in what they said - I think! X

    Everyone was haha, but you could have used both as it said using your knowledge of psychology and addiction etc etc. However if you used just risk factors, you wouldn't have had enough to write about, or if you just used the models. I. E the only two risk factors they blatantly showed (and I wrote about) were personality I. E extraversion, and peers. With peers I also brought in the learning explanation, and operant conditioning. I also tried bringing in cue reactivity theory at the end but that was a far stretch - the case study never stayed he passed the shop every day aha. Hbu?

    I only talked about approaches as I assumed theory of planned behaviour was one of the three they usually asked on I.e media risk factors of tpb - I said how he may be biologically less aroused than other people - pituitary adrenal system and Bordem avoidance then cognitive approaches about conditioned cues etc then intermittent reinforcement and peers for learning - I wasn't sure whether to include risk factors as it specified his addiction to gambling and risk factors is more general addiction but I think you'd get the marks for both!

    Don't worry, I'm sure you done brilliant!, it doesn't really matter what you done more of, as long as you wrote enough and answered the question

    Don't you think it was so awkward adding the studies though? Cos you couldn't really go into that much detail, so for me it was more like name dropping and what they found/concluded.. I was literally cringing at the end of every paragraph because it felt so weird not fully evaluating lool

    I'm sure you will too! Yeah I hope so I reckon it will be cause the questions were so broad that the mark scheme has to be surely?! So happy there was no big question in research methods, I was expecting the paper to be horrible so was pretty happy overall!
