AQA PSYB3 / PSYB4 June 2013.Watch
I left the exam feeling a bit rubbish and now I'm feeling terrible. Got a nasty feeling I didn't read the questions properly.
Can anyone remember the questions about mood disorders? Its all a freaking blur to me :-/
Forensics essay was hard. Waffled on completely.
Do you do any of these?
I don't even think I waffled.. Just completely panicked and wrote anything!
Are you doing unit 4 next week?
That was probably the only essay that went well as I'd practiced it before. What about you?
I did the exam yesterday - Social Dev, Mood Disorders and Substance Abuse. What was that 12 mark Substance Abuse essay about?! I had no idea how to refer to the newspaper headline so I was a bit vague on that.
Everything I was weakest on came up which is sod's law I guess...
Re. Mood Disorders - the big one was two treatments for Schizoprenia but asking to to compare the two which I hadn't really seen before on past papers. I went for drug treatment and then panicked and wrote about coping strategy enhancement like an idiot. The others... I seem to remember a 2 mark one about treatment for depression, one about the difference between Bipolar and Unipolar, and then the other one has completely slipped my mind!
Hope everyone has done ok How are you feeling about PSYB4? I'm doing all this on my own with no teacher so it's interesting to hear other opinions!
Im kind of dreading next Monday as I'd concentrated more on the other exam.. Just hoping there will be ways to answer the questions with a comparison of approaches rather than going into details of one. Looking at the past papers there are a lot of questions about studies and methods.. Eek!
Im teaching myself with books as well, it's soooo hard to know whether you're oon the right track or not!
