I'm thinking maybe an explanations of schizophrenia essay for schizophrenia/mood disorders, for social development I really don't know And I'm doing forensic rather than cognition and law, but for anyone else doing forensic I think it might be on offender profiling.

Obviously these are unlikely to be accurate haha

Yeah that would be better!! I find it hard to write an essay on offender profiling. But it hasn't come up since June 2011 (I think) which is why I get the feeling it might be that

I hope it's face recognition too. I really hope it's not methods of improving witness recall, it'd be hard to know what to put.
I'm doing Moral Development, Mood Disorders, and Cognition and the Law.

Dreading PSYB4, I don't mind the approaches but absolutely hate research methods and debates. I can't remember Debates at all!

Haven't had a question on measuring crime since jan 2011, so I'm thinking that or offender profiling

forensic is probably the easiest for me on psyb3 (doing that, moral development and cognition/law), only the theories seem to have a lot to remember

It was a general consensus with examiners that measuring crime shouldn't be asked again because its not very psychology like (read it in an examiners report a few years ago). I think the forensic essay will be on theories for offending, probably not a comparison because that was last years' question. I'm also guessing a schizophrenia theories essay as that hasn't been asked yet and I do cognitive development so for anyone that does that I'm thinking either the Nativists or Information Processing for the essay.

For schizo/mood disorders, I think the essay will be on schizophrenia because they had mood disorder essays for 3 exams in a row (January 13, June 13 and June 14) and I think it'll be on an explanation because they've done treatments for the last two exams (June 13 and June 14) and they haven't asked for explanations since June 12 (it was schizo explanation) and January 13 (MD explanation).

Forensics is hard to guess because there are so many essays but child development is even worse. I tried working out a pattern but there's no way anyone can guess that one.

Sorry but the June 2013 essay was on treatments for schizophrenia, meaning they could technically ask a theories question for depression. Either way, I think it will be a theories question.

I am relatively happy for PSYB3, really hoping for Piaget or Kohlberg in Moral Development, Treatments of Schizophrenia, and a theory of Offender Behaviour. I am really nervous for PSYB4 approaches, the questions can be so awkward, literally praying Cognitive isn't asked, Behaviourism all the way!

As long as it's a theories question I don't mind whether it's schizophrenia or depression. It's so hard to remember the relapse rates for drug and CBT therapies. I keep getting them mixed up.

I hope Gilligan comes up for Moral Development. Her theories are so easy to compare to the others. Though, Kohlberg wouldn't be too bad.
What don't you like about the Cognitive explanation? It's short, but easy to remember. I hope we're not asked to compare the Eclectic approach to the others. But of PSYB4, approaches is the least of my worries! I'm dreading debates.

How do you revise for research methods?

Gilligan isn't too bad no. My whole class does haha, it's just very convoluted and lots of the topics are really confusing. God, I'd get up and walk out of the hall if it was the Eclectic. Our book is really great for methods (AQA B Pennington) so I just write it down over and over haha.

My teacher seems to think IP will come up as well for cognitive development - I hope not though!
She thinks that it might be ways of measuring crime for forensics as well which isn't too great, not terrible though
