    Could they separate infidelity and jealousy in aggression in a question like outline and evaluate one so you have to pick one of them

    Could they do the same for group displays aswell

    For Gender.. Role of genes/hormones never asked and neither as evolutionary explanations? So is it safe to say it will be one of those? Because cultural hasn't been on since Jun 11 when it was a 12marker, making it due, but maybe because the other two above never been asked, it'll be on them??

    (I know it depends on UMS buuuut) say PSYA3 you get a D and PSYA4 you get a C what could you get overall for the A2?

    Heres another one say PSYA3 you get a D and PSYA4 you get a B what could you get overall for the A2?

    Cheers
    Generally speaking and assuming they're both middling Bs and Ds, you would get a C overall for A2. For D+C though it would be a high D or a low C overall.

    They wouldn't do that since they're together in the spec and they're really closely linked. They can't do that for group displays either since there's nothing to separate. They can just ask for evaluation though.

    No, you don't need to have a conclusion.

    do we only need 15 marks in each section to get an A? Does that mean we can get 45/72 to get an A?

    Literally me haha

    But it's fine you don't need an intro or conclusion, but you can tie it up with an IDA point and say that the approach is not a holistic way of explaining ________ or something along those lines.

    Yep, that's what the boundary for an A was at last year. It was 44 the year before.

    Nobody seems to be doing intelligence.... I'm struggling with it so much and can't find ANY essay samples online nor has loopa made an ebook on it...
    I understand the struggle too!!
    My school is doing intelligence and there's absolutely nothing online, I had to rely on a range of textbooks.

    So basically I could completely fail a whole section and still get an A? sweet

    in terms of aggression, could they ask about infidelity on its own or would it be paired with jealousy or other evolutionary explanations?
