    Hi, my teacher said that correlations are like almost definitely going to come up because they didn't last year but I'm not sure which other 2 will so I'd say just briefly revise the rest
    But honestly I am soo stuck on the case studies

    Investigations:
    - Correlations didn't come up last year so may come up this year. Possible for planning question.
    - Self Reports could come up as a planning question, worth looking into.
    - Observations came up last year as a planning question, so less likely this year.
    - Experiments may come up.

    Core Studies:
    Section B:
    - Samuel & Bryant may come up as it hasn't in quite a while.
    - A couple of others like Griffiths have chances, but they've been reasonably covered since, boards probably wont repeat the same ones as last year.
    Section C: Psychodynamic perspective probably will come up as it hasn't in quite a while.

    Since last year they decided the Section C of the core studies to be a 6 mark question on experiments of cognitive approach and strengths and weaknesses of lab experiments, rather than the usual ones, there are two situations that could happen. They may try and trip us up again by giving us something were not expecting, e.g. an observation planning question or behaviourist on Section C, OR they'll go back to standard strategy and get it to crop up in another 5 years or so. I hope they do the latter as we already have enough work as it is with knowing studies that 10-13 of which we'll only answer a 4-mark or 2 2-mark questions on.
