    The question said explanation(s) so explaining one is fine or you could explain 2
    In January 2013, there was the question "discuss evolutionary explanations of aggression including jealousy and infidelity". Jealousy and infidelity were considered to be explanationS, you don't need to talk about both and group display in our exam. Those who are stressing over this, I even confirmed this with my teacher.

    So the depression essays i am going to learn in detail are issues, bio explanations and psych therapies. Am i taking a risk by not learning bio therapies AT ALL and psych explanations AT ALL?

    For media, would they ever ask you a question on positive/negative effects of just computers and not video games? Bc it mentions both on the spec but I really don't have enough to write much with computers alone.

    For Sz it means the idea that too high levels of dopamine or an over sensitivity to it cause the disorder. I don't know if that's the same for addiction.

    Didn't loopa also predict biological therapies? Even so, I wouldn't risk anything. Try to learn something for every topic. Depression only has a limited number of possible essays compared to the others. You're better off just doing everything, and don't actually rely on predictions (I learned from this after gender schema came up in psya3 for the 3rd time). You will not be disappointed.

    Mine are all around 750 but that's probably because I ramble on a bit much 😂
