    I'm just checking through my folder and for psychological explanations for schizophrenia, my essay includes cognitive and psychodynamic explanations, but would dysfunctional families be a relevant one or should I just leave it out?
    I think 2 would be enough as its a case of depth or breadth. I've included all 3 but my eval points for each are very little. So up to you! In my opinion there's much more eval points for Dysfunctional families than Psychodynamic explanation.

    For media pro and antisocial behaviour when talking about the SLT is it ok to talk about Bandura's Bobo doll study?
    Yes as evaluation though.

    Is it too late to start revising for this exam?? I need a B fml
    Hahahah FML too man..I'm starting revision too just now for addiction and research methods. You might be able to get a C and overall B depending on your grade last year.

    I haven't had time to focus on it properly cause I have S1 the day after Psy and for me maths is more important.. ^.^

    Guys for a research 10 marker what would your headings be for designing a study? Really struggle with research, also any resources for how statistics works because I'm very confused?

    I have a hard copy.
    Could you possibly take pictures of the research methods section and send it to me? Don't worry if it's a trouble, if you could just tell me the questions that came up that would be fab too! Thanks!

    So operationalised hypothesis is when you have identified how you're gonna measure your IV, so for example: there is a relationship between happiness scores (on a questionnaire) and intelligence test scores. If you didn't say that it was on a questionnaire it will not be operationalised, this is quite a specific example from the January 2013 past paper but hopefully you get the gist of it. As long as you're saying how you're measuring your IV in your hypothesis, it should be fine

    Hey would I be able to hypothetically get full marks if for the Biorhythms question, I just wrote about the sleep-wake cycle as a circadian rhythm? I wrote about exogenous zeitgebers and the SCN (endogenous pacemaker) but I'm getting paranoid as it said wrote about their control of "circadian rhythm(s)" and I just wrote about the sleep-wake cycle as a circadian rhythm. In my psych class we only learnt about the sleep-wake cycle and no other circadian rhythms.

    In short, is it okay that I just wrote about the sleep-wake cycle? Thanks
    I wrote the same, that's fine I think
