    I don't understand why everyone finds it difficult to write gender dysphoria and biosocial approach as two different essays? I've written essays in both (still yet to learn them though lol). If anything I don't understand how you can talk about gender dysphoria in the bio social approach.. Can someone explain how you interlink them please?

    what do you do in an exam when a question comes up that you haven't revised and you literally don't know what to write? do you try and make something up? leave it? just need to prepare myself for that situation on wednesday:afraid:
    Id try to make the studies you do know at least party relevant and just do loads of general issues and debates!

    The power threat hypothesis and dehumanisation of the victim both count as evolutionary explanations of group aggression right?

    Yup! That's for Lynch mobs specifically which is still credible.
    Power threat is by Blalock and Dehumanization is by Hyatt

    I've not revised everything but let's hope that doesn't happen... Best shot is just putting down what you think :-) even if it only picks up a few marks better than none

    If so i would assume its an essay solely on gender dysphoria and its explanations

    Yes! Just relax and focus!
    Go over all the essays at least 3 times pick out key things (2 or 3 AO2 for each) general IDAs for each (quite simple remember GRENADE) and then focus heavily on the predictions!

    So here's the problem I have a biology exam tomorrow and it's at 1:30 after that exam do you think that time is enough for me to get atleast most of the essays in my head? I have done my essay plans so what I plan is read do mind-maps read and do it again.. Does that sound like an idea?

    Do you think that we're allowed to abbreviate common words in the exam, provided that we give a key? For example, at the top I'd write "agg" = aggression.
