    I've heard that we can't retake this exam as we are the last year on the spec :/
    We can retake, but the exam will be written specifically to be a resit, just like the AS resits some people just did even tho we were the last to do that bit of the spec last year.

    Do any of you know the word for when a study was done on animals so its hard to generalise the findings to humans? I feel like there's some fancy word for it but I really can't find it.

    Thought i'd give a tip even though you guys might not know it, if a study is done by like 2 researchers, you only have to remember one of the names if you cant remember the other and just write Et al at the end of it, e.g. Berenson and Anderson, you'd write Anderson et al. Teacher told me this today

    can't help but post but honestly researchers names don't matter so much. Get the content done first everyone. Why? Because my cousin sister who did the exam last year told me she had no names and got an A overall, I think A in that exam or A*.
    I also checked on TSR a couple threads and many people say names aren't that important. Why would it even matter. You really think wow this dude remember the name of the researcher? Good details of a study are far more important.

    Just want to make sure as there really isn't time for people learn names if there are 30+.

    I don't think so that's why people are thinking it will come up. I hope it's really the glucose thing. That's pretty easy.

    Good tip. That's what we were told to do too. When I release my studies, one day, with my fellow psychologists, I think I'll put myself down as et al. That way my study can be called et al et al. Easier to remember for all those future students

    Thanks but I don't have more knowledge lol. It's just makes any sense as to why they'd mark you lower for writing a perfect essay but you missed a couple names.
    If you miss evaluation points you'd lose marks but making name or a couple mistakes won't, max 1 mark at the worst. It's good to know shows the markers your confident but at the end of the day it's a little late for some guys on here and I kind of feel sorry for them if they spent all the remaining time memorsing names lol.

    idas include reductionism, determinism,anmal studies ect. they could be used to criticise/support research studies- if a study used animals to test a theory,this could be argued to be ratamorphic... you could also use ida to criticise the actual theory.
