The variations I learned last year were when there was an allie that agreed with the participant, when the participant could write down their answer and when the number of confederates were reduced. All of them resulted in a lower conformity rate

To everyone looking for unit 2 notes btw: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1664763

I don't have a link for unit 1, so you're probably going to have to find notes for it

Last years was life changes & daily hassles. So we can count that one out haha. But there's a range of 12 markers that could be asked in Unit 2 :/

That's not the one I was after, the one I was after was Perrin and Spencer, who did 3 variations with English Uni Students, Young Offenders and their Guards as conderates, and west indian males with white confederates! :')
Thankyou anyways )

The last few exam papers (from jan 2011) have been Psychodynamic Approach to Abnormality, Independent Behaviour, Stress Management, Conformity, Behavioural Approach to Abnormality, and Daily Hassles.

So I believe the 12 marker will be Biological Explanations to Abnormality, OR I reckon it will be on Behavioural Therapies, I don't reckon they'll ask one from Social Influence, as Conformity and Independent behaviour are such wide areas for a 12 marker and won't be used again. However, I also think there will be a chance that life changes will be there, if not a 12, a 8 (as it was in june 2012, the exam I sat). That is my predictions any who! (I love predicting, I predicted all of PSYA3 june 2013 questions correctly wooo)

"Students did not find this an easy essay question. Many students confused the way the social
readjustment rating scale (SRRS) was constructed and developed with the way it has been used,
for example, in the Rahe et al study. Other students simply combined everything they knew and
presented it as if it were one study. Most of the evaluation was not tailored to the question. It was
generic and repetitive: simply saying that each study lacked population validity does not provide an
effective evaluation. It was also disappointing that few students made use of all the research into
daily hassles. This was a shame as it could have been used as a route to developing evaluation
(AO2), as a natural progression from the SRRS. A small minority of students confused these
sources of stress with stress in the workplace and consequently gained little, if any, credit. "

This is the examiners report on the last 12 marker, a lot of exam boards reuse questions from the year before, so I reckon this will definitely be in the paper in some form, such as the 8 marker

I think it is quite a hard one to answer personally, as it's easy to get the SRRS confused with studies etc! I bet there will be a question on this somewhere though )
