    On the Rosenhan Section A question it asked to outline 2 ways in which the pseudo patients behaved and I put something along the lines of 'they were told to stop showing symptoms and act completely normal' - is that an acceptable answer for one of the two ways?

    For ethics, I wrote as much as I could remember. I wrote informed consent, deception, they were made to feel as they'd no right to withdraw (because of the prods). Then at the end, I wrote how despite all ethical problems, they were debriefed at the end.

    For the results, I wrote that 65% obeyed to 450 volts, 35% disobeyed as they only continued to 300 volts or more. Also said that all participants continued to at least 300 volts. For qual I wrote most showed signs of nervousness e.g. laughing fits, digging nails into flesh, etc. I also wrote that 3 participants experienced full blown seizures, one of which was so bad the experiment had to be stopped.
    do you think's okay that I put that 3 had severe fits and one had a fit so severe they had to be removed, instead of seizures?

    I think you could be okay, it depends who is marking it, really. Even if you don't get a mark for it, you'll get marked for everything else.

    I spokeabout how they addressed possible ethical issues, so confidentiality participants details were not published eg age, gender, occupation and then also debriefing because participants were asked whether or not they would like to listen to the verbalisations they had made (basically I repeated what had previously came up on a markscheme)
    Oh, I didn't think of confidentiality. I said the same things with the verbalisations though

    Yeah my textbook says violent convulsions, not seizures, anyways. I don't think it matters it's the same thing!

    Am I the only one who found Section A harder then section B & C?
    I just really hope I got an A, I messed up on the Monkey study, Griffiths & Reicher & haslam. I lost around 12 marks just there alone so leaving me with a best of 48/60, take into account some other mistakes around 44? I think I did really well on the other 30/36? & 20/24? Really hoping I didn't mess up to bad on the section A and some of my guesses were right. Would be really gutted if I don't get an A :'(
    I know this is last year but you could drop 28 marks and still get an A last year!

    They mean the same, it's like using the word upset instead of sad, there's really no difference you'll be absolutely fine!

    This was the grade boundaries from last year!

    81 = A so this was slightly lower than usual

    I've just realise I wrote about the Piliavin victims rather than models and I've never felt so stupid. Seriously hoping it doesn't affect my overall grade, I really need an A this year . What percentage of the final grade is this exam worth?

    No need to alarm anyone who wrote background for the 'why was your chosen study conducted question' but they asked the same question last year and the mark scheme states that you should have provided an aim.... Its only 2 marks though!!!

    Can someone help?

    for the graph question on maquire i didn't say anything about correlations and said something along the lines of how the longer time as taxi driver the higher the right posterior hippocampus? would this be right?

    To everyone freaking out about the Maguire question... I am 99% sure it was positive correlation. Mainly because it's positive correlation between volume change and time spent as a taxi driver in the actual study, and also the numbers (you're saying -8 and +8? That's still an increase) are totally irrelevent - the line of best fit showed positive correlation, as as the change in volume increased, so did the time spent as a taxi driver in months. There's pretty much been a question in every previous exam paper, but for example stating the findings in Dement and Kleitman - you literally just get given the answers and have to write them down
