    Has anyone prepared a 24 mark essay for ultradian rhythms? They are only under endogenous control so theres no debate about EPs and EZs. Is it more likely the question could say "discuss biorhythms including ultradian" as opposed to solely ultradian?
    Asked this before and nobody answered!

    how would you answer an essay question asking "discuss research into..."
    how would your structure change for outline and evaluate or does it make no difference?

    Try writing essay plans for each one, then write a second one (after you've written the first for all essays) condensing the plan into even smaller bullet points.
    Use acronyms for the studies to remember them easier.

    That's what I did -- wrote detailed plans, then wrote essays out, then smaller plans, then flashcards.

    I dread that I'm gonna have to do this for PSYA4 too. ugh

    the loopa guy said that it is unlikely ultradian rhythms would come up by itself (unless it was just a 4 mark question asking for an outline) because there isn't enough content. it would more likely be both ultradian and infradian in one question

    Economic theories such as Social Exchange Theory which talks about how people watch what goes into and what they get out of a relationship. Suggests people want to minimise their inputs and maximise their outputs and that will make them more satisfied with the relationship.

    They're acting pretty much the same thing. The structure I do is:

    1 side or so of AO1 theory
    4 Research studies supporting/criticising the theory including a methodological issue of 2 of them
    2 IDAs

    Also don't be put off if it asks about research as they consider theories to be under the umbrella of research.

    My school starts at 2 PM always for afternoon exams. But at my friends college their exams are at 1:15 PM so seemingly it depends on your school/college.
