The exam is tomorrow and we're all probably panicking especially me! Any tips on what could come up as a 12 marker and 8 marker?

'Outline and evaluate strategies for memory improvement' could be a possible 12 marker as its never come up before

I really hope not because the AO2 points are scarce I think this may be an 8 marker, not a 12.

I think a memory 12 marker will definitely come up as there's been so many attachment ones

Looooook at the specification

it says about the working memory model including strengths and limitations, indicating this is a possible 8 or 12 marker

Wherever it says 'including' on the spec make sure you have a well-prepared answer

memory improvement questions are more likely to be a maximum of 4 marks lol theres not really much you can say

What about the cognitive interview? That's never come up before either

Well the AO1 points are just explaining the 4 components and there are plenty of studies that can be used as emperical evidence or as AO2 points so it is definitely a possible 12 marker!

Apparently predictions with psychology never really work out, that's what my teachers say anyway as the papers are either quite similar to each other or very different each time

i doubt that would be a 12 marker, there really isn't that much you could talk about that would make it worthy of 12 marks.
