Hi guys I haven't seen this thread and as exams are near thought we could discuss what might be coming up and how confident people are with the exams! And also help out with revision

Hi I was just scrolling through looking for a thread like this. I feel pretty confident, obviously depends on what comes up but I got an A last year so it should help me. I done the 2014 mock today but I doubt the same questions will come up. What's your weakest section of unit 3&4?

I feel a lot more confident with unit 3 than for unit 4, there is just so much to learn that I feel like my brain does not have the capacity to hold it all! I managed to get an A last year, although I am really trying to aim for an A* overall (though if I'm honest, I'm trying to push for full ums!).

I think the thing I'm most concerned about is timing and that the potential that they'll ask questions that are going to completely throw me off :/ What do you guys think will come up?

Yeh I assumed you got the exam board wrong because I had no idea what you were on about 😂 I started getting worried that I'd missed a whole section or something 😂

I'm not too good with the practical element either but for criminal my one is basically how the media portrays offender profiling (OP) as useful or not. Then I got 2 articles, one portraying it as good and one as bad. Then I found categories in each one such as consistency and then made a content analysis about it and found it is portrayed in a more positive way due to the tally being higher for the positive article. However this will be different for everybody as it depends on the articles and categories chosen. I then concluded that media portrays it in a positive way. David canter was successful in catching the railway rapist however Paul Britton wrongly framed Colin stagg.

For clinical I made a leaflet using secondary data about what schizophrenia is and the treatments available. I targeted it at 15-19 year olds to change the misconception of schizophrenia and used pictures and colours to make it more appealing to them.

I know none of it really makes any sense but it's the best I've got haha

I would say I used content analysis to identify categories and then tally when the categories came up and I used secondary data which were newspaper articles.

Guys do you know for the methodology questions? (research methods)

Would you talk about just the main features of that research method or give a study example for each point?

In the book it says you need to be able to give a study as an example. I would talk about the method and then give an example. So for example with lab experiments if I had to describe it I would say it's done in an artificial environment with tight controls over extraneous variables. The IV is manipulated to measure the effect on the DV and participant variables such as fatigue are controlled. An example of a lab experiment is loftus and Palmer which was done in an artificial setting and the IV is changing the word in the questionnaire and the DV is the speed of the car.

But obviously it depends on the number of marks. The more the marks the more likely you are to talk about a supporting study.

Does anyone have any advice for what to write in the contributions section? It is the only part of the exam that I'm struggling with and can't revise for it. The mark schemes for these questions are really vague and wishy-washy to me and I can't get my head around it. I can try help out and give any advice in return.
