    No harm at all. Some teachers have advised to do it in that order as Research Methods is worth more marks and apparently takes longer to do than it seems.

    Decent. I have a good understanding of Research Methods. Is there any way I can see a list of possible questions that could be asked and check them, like for example Loopa's Prediction Tables have all the possible questions for a particular topic and therefore it is easy to understand what can be asked?

    could somebody confirm to me that ECT (Electroconvulsive therapy) cannot be used as a biological therapy for schizophrenia anymore? people i speak to say that using it in your essay will gain no credit and that i should only refer to medication, conventional and atypical.
    It can still be used along with anti-psychotics if they ask for more than one biological treatment

    If a question asks about the explanations for the persuasiveness of television advertising can we use The Hovland-Yale model? I'm confused because it comes under 'persuasive effects of media' therefore persuasiveness of television advertising should be seperate right? Yet mark scheems seem to include HYM/ELM

    Any predictions for schizo and addiction!?

    If they ask a 16 mark question for schizophrenia just to evaluate something how many points would you need?

    Yes - it doesn't have to be detailed either. A01 only carries 4 marks.

    A mobile phone company feels that the market for phones for people aged 65+ is notsufficiently developed. They have produced a phone that is slightly larger, with a largerkeypad, clearer display, and fewer but more straightforward applications.Using your knowledge of the persuasiveness of TV advertising, what advice would yougive to the company so that it could make the TV advertising campaign as effective aspossible? Refer to psychological research to justify your advice. (10 marks)

    Anyone who doesn't understand this using the models rep my post and I will do a detailed plan.

    Can I use the Hovland Yale model here or does it have to be hard sell, soft sell etc?
