    Guys do you think we could be asked to evaluate the Hovland-Yale or Elaboration Likelihood model? Or just outline or apply?

    You have to use supporting research to get into the top band, but only outline.

    Can anyone tell me what grade and how many UMS points I need to get in each paper (psya3 & 4) and overall to achieve an A in Psychology A Level? Last year I got 165 UMS overall, which is just over an A. I am assuming I need to get a high B or a low A this year to get an A overall, can anyone tell me the UMS I need this year to get an A? I know grade boundaries change but just a rough estimate is good, based on last years paper is fine. Thanks

    Does anyone have any specific, unique ways to remember inferential tests? and how much do we actually have to know for them? (incompetent teacher)
    All you have to rememebr is which one would you use from the information they've given you in the stem.

    For the 4 methods, anything that includes the letter R means that the critical value has to be GREATER than the significance value that's given in the table.

    All the methods are used for research that's looking for a Difference besides Spearmans Rho which is used for research looking for a Relationship. The way I use remember this is someone throwing a 'spear' so creating a link between 2 things and so a Relarionship.

    Data comes from either the same person (repeated) or form 2 different sources (independent)

    SR- Repeated measure
    CS- Independent
    MW- Independent
    WC- Repeated

    To remember this I just remeber the ones that are independent. Chi square as a rectangle so 4 sides so Data comes from different sources "sides"
    Man Whitney I think of as "man and wife" so again 2 different sources of data.

    Level of data

    SR- Ordinal (taking a score)
    CS- Nominal (putting into categories)
    MW- Ordinal/interval
    WC- ordinal/ interval
    spear mans RhO ends with O so ordinal. And just rememebr Chinsquare as a rectangle which can be drawn like a table and so can be used to categorise. Everything else is ordinal/interval.

    That's all you need to know for the statistical tests. I know it's long winded and weird but that's the method I use and that's how everything sticks in my head and it works! (For me xD) if you've gotten this far and are struggling then it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. This is the last time I'll probably be posting on this discussion, so good luck to y'all! You'll do great!

    Guys for media application questions are split a01 and application right

    the application marks would be referring to the stem, so would including research for the different factors e.g credibility, appearance all that be a01 too?

    Guys do you think if I just revise:

    - Media influences on prosocial behaviour
    - Negative effects of video games
    - Positive effects of video games
    - Hovland-Yale model
    - Psychological explanations for the attraction of celebrity

    I'll be safe? There's WAY too much for me to revise it all D:

    Hahah for that I dont have a special way of remembering for that. I find it tricky too but there are a few example online to separate the2. The only thing I can say is try to understand it instead of just memorising cause then you'll be able to rememebr it.

    One hour in Research methods and 30min for each in the rest. Sh*t I just realised that the exam is 2hrs. Dammit. But usually for me research methods never takes me a full hour so I always make sure I spend more time on the first section so I can finish my essay as I'm prepared for sz the most than any other sections.

    Hahaha ya I only remembered that when I was tying too. Don't panic! Honestly speaking- I've literally just sat down and started revising research method. Only thing I know if the statistical test. Try and revsie what ever you find the hardest today and then go over the easiest ones that's left tomorrow so that you can spend the rest of the day going over everything as a whole... Me on ther other hand I still have parts of addiction to finish
