    its fine. as long as you had q number next to it youre fine.

    they do that to make it easier to sort. your answers will still be there just take longer to organize
    Oh phew. The invigilator didn't read that out and my teachers didn't even tell us.
    Did you read it and use 2 lines?

    do you seriously think examiners will down mark essays because there was one line of space between questions and not two?

    they do everything to consider 'time limitations'

    Guys help me!! It said on front of the paper to leave two lines between each question but I left one?! Will this affect how / if it's marked?!?
    Its just a guideline for clarity. It will not affect your marking if you havent left gaps, as long as all answers are inside the answer booklet.

    Do you know if including one study for outline and evaluate for depression limits my marks? I wrote alot of a01 and did 6 ish points for A02 that was developed can i still get top marks?

    The pro social TV programmes question was difficult. I don't really know what information they wanted. I talked about Bandura's SLT, is that right? I applied it to the scenario of course.
    Also, for the evolutionary explanations of celebrity attraction, I talked about the Prestige Hypothesis and included McCutcheon's Celebrity Attitude Scale too, to show that the highest level people were more likely to be strongly attracted to celebrities? Was this the right approach?
    The 'which statistical test' question, it was quite open as it said 'what do YOU think is the most appropriate statistical test'. This implies to me that as long as I justified my choice, then I'll get the marks...i put chi-squared.
    Hoping the grade boundaries are low for this exam😭

    I wrote how there will be a negative correlation because I saw it was an answer on a past paper I did ages ago.
    Fingers crossed that is right!

    I did the exact same thing as you! I sat there for 5 minutes not knowing what to put for the bar chart and just finally was like ''Sod it, I'll do it this way and if I don't get marked I won't!''
    I did the same as you both, I think that's right as I see no other way you could have done it, a lot of people did a bar chart and just missed out the range. What we did is a clustered bar chart that shows who variable for each group, and I think we're right!

    Went okay I think.

    RM was okay apart from I messed up on the statistic I put Wilcoxon thinking it was repeated measures.
    Put significant.
    For the one tailed thing - put because he used a directional hypothesis.
    Knew the terms of validity and reliability. Put concurrent validity for assessing the validity.
    Did a bar chart where I did 4 bars on one graph.
