    I'm almost complete with my unit 1 revision! I know everything with good understanding, just trying to perfect everything by tonight so I 100% know I can answer the questions in the exam!
    Saturday will be spent learning the practicals and research methods for 2/3 hours, then hopefully I'm ready to get a B grade!

    How about you, how are you feeling about the exam?

    No chance. There's not nearly enough to talk about. I really hope it's to describe and evaluate a study in detail, just because you can write off all the information without having to think about some weird context they've given you.

    What's everyone got for their key issues by the way? We're doing football violence and the reliability of eyewitness testimony.

    Did you do displacement as your theory of forgetting? We did trace decay and cue dep. and I forgot one of them is an optional so if you did displacement in detail ignore my last message :P

    Also I agree I think sherif is really going to come up for some question

    Yeah, it is definitely one of the most boring ones and where it has three stages, it's just a pain. We didn't study Gottesman and Shields but, we have some really annoying studies in unit 2 that I could definitely do without! Are you feeling confident with both of the units?

    I remember through answering past questions and just highlighting and stuff. I've resulted in repetition these past few days to make sure I know everything really well. So, I tend to just write out the notes 3/4 times and it tends to stick. But, understanding is definitely the key. I have seen other people say that the social identity theory hasn't come up before/in a while, so it may well come up. Also, they've never used the social key issue before, so that may also come up!

    I'm confident with unit 1 but, I need at least a B in both units otherwise I have to change colleges and continue the BTEC that I started last year (long story). So, it's just really stressing me out! I'm hoping it will be a relatively easy paper and we'll get the questions that are nice to us!

    I am really struggling with unit 1, I have a really good understanding of all the information an case studies but when i answer past questions the points i make are not in the mark scheme. For example i would say that the 22 boys were observed 24 hours a day through tape recordings, for sherif et al, but that wouldnt get me a mark. I am realy panicked that my notes arent good enough. would the examiner still give me the marks if i make good points that arent in the mark scheme?

    The points you make do not necessarily need to be specified in the mark scheme in order to achieve the marks. You need to make relevant points to the study and clearly link to the question. If your notes are from your teachers input then they should be correct and should achieve good marks in the exam. You need to ensure that you read the question properly and answer how they want you to answer. For example, I read that an examiner said when they ask just for the procedure of a study, people still write about the aims/findings/conclusions which isn't what the question sets out to be.

    I don't think you should panic that your notes are not good enough but, you can message me if you want any help and I'll try and help as much as I can! I'm not an A student but my teachers gave us booklets for each approach that literally draws information from the mark schemes.. But, like I said as long as your points are relevant to the study, they should be fine!
