    Can anyone help me specifically with the aggression topic? It's really confusing me as to how the different sections are split up and what typical essays the questions will ask for.

    Also, how should structure my essays, with all the various sub topics like initiation maintenance and the specific examples of smoking and gambling has really made my head hurt. If anyone has any good resources or plans, that would help a huge tonne if you share them.

    Hey, I'm also doing Aggression in PSYA3 so hopefully I can help.

    The sub topics are:
    Social Psychological Explanations (Social Learning Theory and Deindividuation)
    Institutionalisation
    Neural and Hormonal Mechanisms (could get a 24 marker on either neural or hormonal or a 24 marker on both)
    Genetic Factors
    Evolutionary Explanations (either Jealousy/Infidelity or Sports/Warfare)

    The question will make it specific what it's looking for, e.g in the instance of evolutionary explanations it may ask for just jealousy and infidelity.

    Have a look at past paper questions on the AQA website to get an idea of how questions are asked.

    Also for resources - try getrevising.co.uk or loopa.co.uk

    At least you have a teacher! Mine left halfway through the year and we have to teach ourselves.
    For Institutional aggression I'm only doing about prisons:
    -Importation model (Irwin and Casey) with supporting research by Poole and Regoli and Harer
    -Deprivation model (Peterson et al) supported by Mcorckle and Applied to HMP Woodhill. But Nijman found conflicting results.

    It's not fleshed out and of course I'm gonna add some AO2 points but this should be enough for either a high C or a low B.
