There doesn't seem to be many people doing B, everyone seems to be doing A but anyway...

Any predations on what will come up as the essay questions? For both papers?

What revision techniques have you got? Are they working?

Yeah not many people seem to be doing this exam. I think (or at least hope lol) that biopsychology will not come up as there was 3 questions about it last year. There was also a 10 marker on psychodynamics so i doubt that there will be a 10 mark question on it this year. Some people say that they will try to make the exam even harder this year, so it could mean a possible 10 mark question asking you to compare 2 approaches, compare memory models or theories of autism. Hope this was helpful, however remember that there is no way of predicting what will come up so it is better to have a moderate knowledge of all topics rather than knowing everything about just one.

I hope there's no biopyschology and the approachs essay is either humanistic/biological/psychodynamic
And gender is cognitive or psychodynamic

I'm doing AQA B! I'm literally praying that humanistic and cognitive don't come up for approaches. I don't mind cognitive for gender though as I can talk about Kohlberg.
I don't know what it is about the humanistic approach - I just don't get it

Oh I think the humanistic is the simplest approach

Do you have any sort of revision resources on it or anything to really break it down?

I would not know how to answer a 10 mark on cognitive for key approaches. It doesnt make any sense without a context

So you couldn't answer it in the first section of the example? Where it's just the key approaches?

Yeah I know what you mean. I can talk about the cognitive in gender but not for approaches haha
I guess they're somewhat different though - can't really talk about Kohlberg

biopsychology has never come up as an essay, but my teacher said that's because there isn't really any evaluation points that you can write about. All you can do is valuate the biological approach, so that question is more likely (describe biopsychology and evaluate the biological approach) but then, the exam board have suprised us in the past

There is a lot you can evaluate for methods of cortical specialisation which could be an essay - especially since it hasn't come up before
