    What sorta timing should we be looking at for this exam? I know the first topic we should spend about 30 mins on, but what about the next one and research methods? 30/40/50?
    35 35 50 but they advise 50 minutes of RM. So depends how you handle the other situations.

    He got all my topics right last year even when there was a replacement paper
    I'm just thinking though if they put what he's predicted on for sz it would be so predictable and people would know what is going to be on (excluding classification and diagnosis)

    Nobody should risk it.

    Let's say there is a 10 mark question on the influence of media on pro-social behaviour (4+6).

    Is it possibly to still pick up marks for evaluation if you present research findings as AO2 and criticise the methodology of said findings?

    I've only seen pro social and anti social behaviour come up once with a scenario- but you do need to use evidence to support your A01 so yes.

    ive found predicting addiction is really hard cause there are no specific patterns in questions so its hard to tell what will come up for that topic :/

    Because they published a second paper last year i really don't know what is going to come up, celebrity worship and stalking is my least favourite things and I'm not that good at it. It came up last year in the replacement paper so I'm not sure if they will do it again this year or if they won't because they did it last year. Can anyone shed any light on this?

    exactly! i mean i've got my 10 markers for the predictions, one of which is cognitive explanations.. but i havent done biological or learning yet and think i might just skim over them and get my head around them! there's just too much to learn-_-
