AQA PSYA3 Revision Thread for June 2014.Watch
Welcome to the revision thread for AQA PSYA3 for the exam in June 2014.
Please, discussion is encouraged so don't be late to reply!
Why not start off with which three topics your covering.
I'm studying Sleep and Bio Rhythms, Aggression and Eating Behaviours.
What about you? Do you have any predictions as to what may or may not be asked next year? Do you want or need revision help?
PS. I would prefer it if you quoted me as neccessary because I'm often too lazy to notice whether a thread has been updated unless someone replies to me directly!
Don't forget to leave positive rep and more importantly have a positive mental attitude ready for the exam so you can acheive what you deserve!

I have a psych mock tomorrow and wanted to check, if I've a 4 marker, 'outline research into institutional aggression' can I use the importation/deprivation models as research?
How are you all revising? Also is it okay to use one key study (eg Bandura's bobo doll study for SLT) and just evaluate it or do we need to use lots of 'little' studies? Thanks.
What about you?
You can use just one study so long as it is described in sufficient detail.
You do not need to list the whole aims and procedure thing like in AS but do not assume that the examiner knows who you are mentioning.
From looking at the examiner reports, they want you to use research findings to prove or disprove a model/theory/point etc so use the one study effectively.
I too have never heard of deprivation so I will just go with Zimbardo's power of the situation and dehumanising labels. Hope this helps. Good luck to all.
the importation model suggests we bring personality traits into institutions with us i.e. gang culture will persist in prisons, lowe education and unemployment creates aggression (Kane) as does alcohol dependancy. So basically, our personality traits will lead to aggression, not situation.
hope this helps
