    I did schizophrenia and addiction! I really didn't like the addiction questions, especially the 10mark one on psychological interventions
    oh apparently with the schizo question it wasn't very good this year? and ew addiction was HORRIBLE the media question I legit just say there for like 5 mins thinking what to write!!! and psy interventions was horrible.. what did you write for it? i think i did motivational interviewing?

    I used single and double blind? not sure if thats internal validity !!
    Was that the question to test the validity of the questionnaire??? I don't know if this is right, but you could about predictive validity, concurrent validity or face validity .

    I can't remember the questions anymore

    Guys!!!! For unit 3 I just realised that I didn't put the number of the question in the boxes (I'm an idiot yes I know but I didn't read it) instead I put it next to the answer on the actual lines so e.g. 02) biological explanations state....

    Will this affect anything? Omg I'm praying it doesn't because I didn't write ANY of the question numbers in the boxes only on the lines
    I noticed my mistake in today's exams and filled it in correctly but I'm panicking now because I realised I didn't for unit 3
    Dont panic, if you check the AQA website they clearly state that they will do everything they can to make sure you get the marks even if you don't write the question answers, as long as its relatively clear in your answers which questions you did, like the fact you wrote the numbers, then you'll be fine. They scan everything so they make sure its the right question, you should be fine if its clear in the question.

    That's what I thought!!! But everyone else's seems to have done it for the anxiety programme. I am so confused. If we're wrong that's two easy marks gone

    Wasn't the data interval? Because they were measured using units of equal interval (anxiety scores). Pretty sure that's right.

    They can't be higher that the boundaries last year, can they?

    Do you think they will be higher???

    I feel like people did well in research methods, but maybe not on schizophrenia as we were all expecting classfication and diagnosis

    Don't understand how people can blame the Loopa fella if they don't do as well as they would have liked???

    You revise predictions knowing there's a risk AQA could choose any question they like, plus they're meant to act as a guide rather than entirely shape your revision.

    Entirely your own fault, don't have any sympathy.

    tbh I found there wasn't a lot of research for either, particularly media though! I think I might have made up a study hahaha, I wrote about role models too and also for gambling if he saw adverts on tv because it said he watches lots of tv too
