I'm revising conformity for psychology AS and there's ,two different studies for conformity like majority influence by Asch, and conformity to social roles by Zimbardo, so in the exam will they ask you to discuss any research for conformity or a specific one like majority influence or conformity to social roles ?? and does this apply to every other topic in psychology too ??

usually the questions are quite general so asking you to discuss research into conformity and you can usually include anything underneath that banner so to speak. i would also say that this is usually the case for most topics across AS psychology. to be extra sure though you could look at past papers to see what the questions are like.

Ok thanks , I've looked at all the paper questions and most of them don't ask for specific*studies so Ill just focus one study for each topic ,but does this mean they will never ask for specific studies seeing as all the past papers don't ?

I'm sure Milgram comes under obedience rather than conformity?

If you're referring to AQA A, then I recall seeing Milgram's study being specifically stated in one of the past papers in relation to ethical issues. Definitely make sure you know both of the studies. Generally though, questions seem to be 'Outline (or outline and evaluate) research into conformity/obedience.'
