    Studies most likely to come up

    - Piliavin

    - Milgram

    - Griffiths

    Possible changes:

    - Milgram = change sample to add females, make it a questionnaire instead of electric shock test to improve ethics

    - Piliavin = change the procedure of 11am-3pm to longer hours, makes more valid as more valid sample can be ontained

    - Griffiths = make longitudinal, can study gamblers better
    Thanks cross fingers that's gonna be in it

    There seems to be a lot of interest in Section B and C atm. But it is extremely important to remember that most of the exam is Section A. Don't skip over it or skip over details in the exam for this section.

    When I open the exam, I'm going to have a quick look at four things: The possible studies for Section B, the theme for Section B, the possible approaches/perspectives for Section C and the final question for Section C. I'm doing this so I can mentally prepare myself whilst I'm doing the Section A questions. I will be able to think about the studies in relation to the theme and strengths and weaknesses of that approach/perspective/experimental method.

    Totally agree, I just want to at least pass and not resit it. Even if I just get an E, I think I'd be happy haha

    Lol I got an E last year in COre studies and I'm resitting this exam.

    Don't feel like I've done enough for this exam, oh well.. A2 exams will hopefully raise my grades up. Also, worst thing is that I'm actually going to study Psychology at Uni lol peaks

    Ok how would you evaluate it though and they are two 8 mark questions!
    They're not always 8 mark questions each, sometimes they merge them so it's ''suggest a change and evaluate'' - all as one 8 marker.

    Evaluations just mean the advantages and disadvantages. For example, making Milgram a questionnaire could make it more ethical, but make it more prone to social desirability bias.

    Be specific too, if you suggest changing it to a self-rating scale, you have more time to evaluate, as you can criticize that by saying ''rating scales may differ between individuals interpretations''

    Operationlize suggested changes

    I fudged this exam up last year. Got an A in the mock but U in the exam (luckily my Psych Investigations brought it up to an E, though I suppose that's not really luck per-se).

    Just think, whenever you answer an question, there's ALWAYS a right answer....I know, that's an obvious thing to think, but when you say it to yourself, the situation is less stressful.

    no figures are never needed to reach full marks although they can help you with your point.

    Hard to tell.

    My Psychology teacher thinks it was a one-off, but they may return to the old format or keep new format.

    Pilavin
    Secondary Research = CCTV footage of people who fall in the street. measure who helps, how long it takes ect.

    R&H

    Maguire
    Longitudinal experiment using a sample of trainee navigators such as pilots, sailors and lorry drivers as well as taxi drivers, with a total sample of 30. men and women. Left and right handed would be matched, and scans would be performed for each year for 6 years to detect changes

    Sperry
    Natural experiment on people who have to have one side of the brain anesthetised for operations or are severly brain damaged in accidents could carry out the sperry tasks

    Sorry for the spelling mistakes, am very tired from revision
