    Same here. We probably do different modules to other colleges here. Learning all of the modules would just be crazy! For PYA4, we just do:

    biological rhythms, sleep, dreams
    cognitive development, moral development, development of intelligence
    altruism, bystander behaviour, pro and anti-social behaviour.

    I'm one of the only 3 guys in my Psychology class. I also went to a conference in C.London a few months back and it was 95% female (a good thing!). I'm not gay am I? Lol

    Our teacher made us follow this extremely tight schedule where every lesson, we do a 20-minute essay on an area we are weak with (as a whole class) as well as hand in another essay we have done at home. Then for the rest of the lesson, 2 different pupils have to do a task for the whole class on another weak area. Mines in about a week's time and I have to prepare something for the class about Ultradian rhythms and Cognitive Development (Vygotsky) so I badly need some ideas. I have never really understood what questions involving ultradian rhythms are asking for though! I understand the cycles but that's all there is to it in the textbooks! Not much to write for a 30-mark question is it!

    unit 4 i did
    biological rhythms, sleep, dreaming
    approaches (things like behaviourism etc.)
    comparative (evolutionary) psychology

    pretty different! hardly anywhere does comparative + it is def the best section.
