    I predict;

    unit 3: 43/72 (decreased due to the repeated questions)
    unit 4: 51/83 (same reason and because many people found research methods tricky compared to last year)
    I would agree with the unit 3 predictions, but I reckon unit 4 is a little to optimistic, I would predict somewhere in the region of 54/55.

    2014 grade boundary (I believe) was 50 for an A and the paper was similar in terms of hardness so I reckon it would be in the low 50s (51,52,53)

    Your right in that sense, but it also depends on the UK average and of course the different sub sections people answered. As far as I can see the country average has been increasing each year, only resulting in higher grade boundaries; but you may be right.

    Yeah you're right, it's also influenced surprisingly by our GCSE results, if they have higher expectations - higher boundaries. Yeah, it depends on the most popular sections, for example the performances on the relationships and aggression questions will have more of an impact than bio rhythms for example. It's also important to note how many people missed out most of gender, a relatively popular topic!

    I did it in relation to the anxiety programme i.e. the 6 week anxiety programme will help to reduce the anxiety scores on the questionnaires that was given to students. I have no idea if it's right but that is what made sense to me at the time...
    I honestly don't understand how you'd even write a directional hypothesis if you interpreted the questions as asking about the appropriateness of the questionnaire?

    For mine i mainly used it as A01 evidence studies and IDA points, other things i added myself including eval points of certain studies like for sleep a study was done by campbell where he shined light on the knee of Ps, and itwoke them up. I added the fact heat could have been emitted from the light pad which caused them to wake up then did prac app of using knee pads airplanes to avoid waking up by random lights.


    Hi, for te sleep question i only wrote about sleep wake cycle and the question said circadian rhythms - will this now cap my marks... im so annoyed because i knew this all year and just bombed under time pressures
