    Hard to tell.

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

    What's the difference between old and new format?

    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.
    I am retaking this for a third time (fail, I know) but am confident that I can get higher than a D this time! Last year's paper was quite difficult to be fair, the section A questions were harder and they threw in that lab experiments questions in section C, too.

    I'm not gonna lie... Never felt this stressed. I've done about 9 hours revision today and I feel like I've forgotten everything I did. I'm preparing to fail right now.

    Can someone give example answers for 2 advantages & disadvantages of Psycho dynamic perspective.
    - Can help the understanding of mental illness
    - Collect in depth data and often longitudinal
    - can explain why people behave the way they do (eves diagnosis of MPD, Hans phobia)

    - Often not generalisable (single samples)
    - Subjective data, open to interpretation, not scientific
    - Ethics, stress for participants (eve being told she might have two personalities, had to do 100 hours + interviews, Hans told he is sexually attracted to his mother)

    Basically you would first say an assumption of the approach. You would then you give an example (behaviour), then a conclusion (Why it links to the approach). Good luck tomorrow
