    So I did conventional and atypical anti-psychotics as biological therapies for schizophrenia as the Jan 2013 mark scheme said ECT could only be credited if it was clear in the A01/A02 that is it no longer recommended/used apart from drug resistant patients. Everyone else I know did drugs and ECT so can I only get 12 marks max?
    No, I did exactly the same = antipsychotics only. The question said 'one or more', so as long as our answers were detail-rich, we're good! I've heard that about ECT as well, and I got taught to write an essay without it soo ya

    ahh is it still likely i'll get an A in this paper? I feel like the rest of the exam was relatively easy
    Say you got full marks on everything else you would get a total mark of 71 out of 83. And judging by the previous two years the grade for an A is 57 (2015) and 50 (2014), so you have a great chance of getting an A even if you did supposedly drop few other marks elsewhere. You even got a good chance of getting an A*

    Oh my seriously!? I wrote in by A02 that ECT mainly treats short-term symptoms, linked that its used as a last resort (i.e. prefer drugs or CBT with more research and acclaimed credibility). I must admit the bulk of my essay was on ECT with drugs minimal (full A01 with like 2/3 A02 points)

    Does this mean I am covered or not?

    I can't stop worrying I didn't prepare as much for biological therapies I knew about it though but just couldn't remember studies just the fact that 30% of the antipsychotics cause tardive dyskinesia and I think I muddled up conventional and atypical AHH. RM and addiction was okay :/

    Ugh for the 10 mark addiction one wasn't it focussed on the impact of media? Ugh I'm so stressed because I didn't properly reference any theories (so like behaviour approach, SLT) because I thought they wanted us to solely focus on the effect of media? Did I completely flop that question?!

    I found that the hardest question of the paper. I spoke about some theories but mainly SLT, advertisements and just linked it back to Tony. I'm praying I did enough to get more then 6

    To everyone worrying about if it was interval data or ordinal. I put ordinal because AQA can only ask for Chi-squared, wilcoxon, manwhitney ans spearmans Rho. If you used interval data you would have got unrelated t test?
    Sorry if I have misunderstood what ur saying here but to my knowledge and this is what we have been taught all year, both wilcoxon and Mann Whitney are interval data!
