Hi Guys,

Just wondering if any fellow AQA Spec B students would share their tips to get the AO2 marks in the essays.

I know that if there is a scenario with the question, they reserve up to 2 marks for application to the scenario but what about the other 6 or 8, should I be making 2 pro and 2 cons then compare with another theory/technique followed by a conclusion?

Any help would be much appreciated!

You can evaluate the research methods used
Say if it's deterministic/reductionist
Useful applications?
Compare to another approach

Good Ao2s to go for are:
Whether the approach advocates determinism or free will or is a compromise between both being soft determinism
If it is deterministic bring in how this can be good for psychology as it allows for prediction and control of behaviour
Say how determinism has implications for the CJS, should we punish criminals if they are predetermined to commit crime?
Whether what you are talking about is highly scientific or not
If it is bring in Popper and say how he would argue that a testable hypothesis can be derived from X thus advancing the view of psychology as a science
If a study lacks ecological validity or not
If a study is cross culturally supported
etc etc there are loads of Ao2 marks you can get on the PSYB3 and PSYB4 papers, I think there are 2 marks available for general evaluation and 4 for applying it to the studies.
