    • The Biological Approach Or Biological Therapy For Abnormality
    • Outline and Evaluate research into the relationship between the immune system and stress related illness.
    • Discuss two or more methods of stress management

    what would you guys write for the immune system and stress essay? Not sure how you could get 6 marks worth of AO1.. unless you link it with workplace and life changes?

    You would do Kiecolt-Glaser's study on T-Cell activity during exams and also Cohen's study when he exposed people to illness and compared it to their SRRS score.

    For the 12 mark you didn't need the marmot et al study , that was on workplace stress not personality factors. The main study was the Rosenham et al one on type A and type B personalities. If you explained the study in detail and had a good amount of A02, you would be fine. I re-took the exam and I found it much easier than the June 2013 paper. I think the only question that I messed up on was the ethical issues question on how to overcome it. Got a bit confused in the exam but oh well its only 4 marks. Also I think the questions in this paper where a bit stupid and felt disorganised. As for 4 mark questions they asked for too much or too little. But I completed the whole paper feeling confident in comparison to last year.

    Just wanted to put it out there but with Psychology exams both AS and A2 it is impossible to predict what will come up. This is because with Psychology everything is potentially a 12 mark, 8 mark or 6 mark question. For that reason never listen to predictions even if it given by teachers. The best thing to do is to do all past papers from 2011 onwards. This is the best way to prepare for the exam. Not only are you aware of how of much each question requires but you also realised that similar questions come up every year with different wording. For example, With Psychology AS the previous year the 12 mark question can be on Social Psychology, this does not mean they won't ask a 12 mark from Social Psychology again. They can do it! If you're in year 12 and think you did not do well (hope you did), when re-taking this module next year do not forget to do past papers!

    Secondly, Psychology A2 perditions are bullcrap! Just do every single possible 24 mark essay question that could come up! Get your teachers to re-mark it several times until every essay is over 18 marks.

    I wish the best for everyone who does psychology, it really is the best a-level but the hardest too.
