    I don't think so! It was an ethics question so positive and negative points on ethics, what did you write about!
    I didnt read the question properly, i just did the general pros and cons of the approach i didnt mention anything about the ethics i dont think im gonna het any marks on it

    For the ethical strengths and weaknesses of the physiological approach I had to completely wing it and make stuff up!
    For strengths I said:
    It mainly uses experiments which means that informed consent would be gained by agreeing to be involved in the experiment e.g in dement and kleitman by turning up at the sleep lab they were giving consent
    Also the methods used are scientific and use complex equipment which do not cause harm to subjects e.g in maguire MRI scans are not harmful so welfare isn't an issue and sperry wasn't harmful
    And then something else but I can't remembers
    For weaknesses I said:
    Something to do with welfare I can't remember exactly but I used the example of sleep deprivation in dement and kleitman
    And the invasion of privacy cause studying biological factors can be quite intrusive into people's lives e.g in dement they had to report to the sleep lab several times which would interfere with their lives and also the control group for Maguire was collected from the MRI database meaning they had access to these files


    Probably completely irrelevant but it was such a random question!

    I wrote something very similar to you, it was an awful question to be honest hopefully this means low grade boundaries :3

    Well it says how was it operationalised and was 2 marks, you would need to say the introduction of the trade unionist and the fact that they were a prisoner and then you would say that they were introduced on day 7

    Ok that makes me feel a bit better! Hopefully we've got some points right!
    Yeah it was, it was a bit sneaky! They'll probably be the same as last year to be fair, they don't vary much

    Can someone help?

    I think section A was good for some of it, just the Sperry, Pilivian and Reicher and Haslam that I know i got wrong... do you think that even if i got these questions wrong that it would ruin my chances of passing?

    Section B went good and Section C was average
    do you think these section A errors will lower it or will it not matter?

    also can anyone get the answers to the last question? thanks

    As long as you said it was a trade unionist that was introduced in order to suggest cognitive alternatives further making the situation unstable as well as unfair due to the fact that he allowed the prisoners to imagine more alternate situations.
    Oh and it was Day 5 not day 7!!

    No they won't make too much of a difference, it's only 4 marks per study!

    I thought Section A was very good, section B was pretty good and section C was quite horrible, especially the last question. Overall, a better paper than last year

    Well no one will be able to get the official answers but I did psychodynamic for the last question and said:
    Strengths:
    1) Informed consent - thigpen - she chose to go their (included fine details etc!) then said why it was a strength!
    2) Deception - lack of deception involved - action research - they were treating the patient whilst documenting observations and qualitative/quantitative data and therefore had no reason to lie as they were simply forming conclusions and treatments around information given (included fine details and said why a strength).

    Weaknesses:
    1) Distress - Thigpen - possibly iatrogenic, intergration - killing off two of the alters and leaving one but unknown who they would leave and the fact they had to access her repressed memory of kissing her dead grandmothers forehead in order to get to the root of her condition (fine details and explain why a weakness)
    2) debrief - wasnt sure about this but said in thigpen she was not debriefed properly possibly due to the fact that they still did not know much about MPD and therefore could not debrief her to completely give her peace of mind - BUT because she wasnt debriefed she never knew that her condition could return - which it did with 21 alters - therefore this could also cause distress (fine details and explain why a weakness)

    This could be wrong but I was put on the spot and thought of the best things I could haha!

    Oh god I don't know then! The textbook definitely said day 7 but I guess if there is a video saying day 5 then maybe both will be accepted, sometimes there's variations in how things are published yknow like how some things aren't included in certain studies, I don't think we'd lose a mark for that though that was just an extra bit of knowledge!
