    Does anyone have any predictions on what might come up in the exam? For the 12 marker etc...

    Hope it is on conformity personally, I think Asch's study is much easier than Milgram's Obedience study to talk about

    Well I think it will probably be Sigmund Freud's psychodynamic approach to psychopathology rather than obedience or conformity

    I think there's a possibility of this years essay being on stress as the past 2-jan 13 was abnormality and June 12 was conformity

    I think stress will also come up, and I am guessing the 12 marker will be on daily hassles or life changes maybe...

    Here's a list of some of the previous 12 markers....

    Jan 2013- Outline the behavioural approach
    June 2012 - Outline Research into conformity
    Jan 2012- Discuss two or more methods of stress management
    Jun 2011- Outline and evaluate independent behaviour
    Jan 2011 – Evaluate the psychodynamic approach to abnormality.
    Jun 2010 – Outline and evaluate research into the relationship between the immune system and stress-related illness.
    Jan 2010 - Discuss two or more definitions of abnormality.
    Jun 2009 – discus one or more psychological methods of stress management
    Jan 2009 - Evaluation of the biological approach to psychopathology

    Minority influence can't come because they have removed it from the new spec so it can only come up as part of social change!

    Any good reasons why research into obedience is not coming up on the 12 marker? It is one of the biggest part of the Unit 2, and it didn't come up for 4 years!! so know everything about obedience!

    I reckon it will be on stress, because since the specimen paper it has been:
    Social psych, abnormality, stress, abnormality, social psych, stress, social psych, abnormality,
    so stress is likely to come up next

    My teacher reckons it might be on personality factors and stress, as stress is likely to come up anyway and personality factors has never been asked. But I think that's quite easy, considering you can talk about Type A, Type B and Hardiness and all of the relevant studies and such.

    I think it will be on explanations of abnormality but not the behavioural as that came up in Jan 13. June 12 was on conformity, and year before the 8 marker was on conformity I DOUBT it will come up again.

    I really want a 12 or 8 marker on the biological approach to abnormality!

    PLEASE GOD PLEASE DON'T BE A 12 MARKER ON STRESS, PLEASE!

    I don't think stress is as hard as it seems, I think the studies are easier to remember than for abnormality!
