    Thanks a lot guys! So basically should I also list all symptoms?
    No you actually need to describe what they are. Eg one positive symptom of sz is hallucinations, this symptom can include seeing and hearing things that aren't actually there (it can also be feelings and smells but don't go OTT)

    For tthe pro social topic for media, can we only know two things (e.g. Social learning theory and parental mediation) rather than all the others explanations?

    1 explanation alone plus evaluation can be enough for full marks, so yes.

    to get an overall grade of a B you need 280 UMS marks so in your case youd need 136 UMS marks from unit 3 and 4 combined so thats like 68 UMS marks in unit 3 and unit 4 thats basically a high C in each exam but for an A you need 320 UMS marks in your case youd need 176 UMS marks for both unit 3 and 4 and thats like 88 UMS marks which is a really high A in both unit 3 and 4 exams
    oooh i see thats so helpful, thank you!!

    for risk factors in addiction, Loopa's only talked about stress... do we need to know about age, personality and peers as risk factors as well? because if we do i won't have anything to write..

    don't worry it turns out i was missing some pages, loopa's essays do include the other risk factors
