    For addiction how do you answer those stem questions with a scenario about risk factors? Do you include any studies or anything or literally just identify the risk factors in relation to the stem because for ten marks that doesn't seem a lot?
    Identify the risk factors in the given scenario and include some studies that are relevant to it

    I do Gender, Relationships and Aggression for PSYA3 and Schizophrenia and Media Psychology for PSYA4. I had a really good teacher for AS and got an A but have had 4/5 different teachers this year so my knowledge of the course is pretty much off my own (or the dog book & Loopa's) back. As time is getting limited, I'm thinking of only focusing on the most likely essays for PSAY3 - do you guys think that's overly risky or a safe bet? I know this course is ending this year, does that effect question predictions?

    Also, if anyone wants to swap notes I have an extensive set for my topics but could also use other peoples to top up my A02/3.

    I've only learnt two essays so I'm hedging my bets at the moment! I'm not learning last years essays and learning the loopa predictions in more detail although I am learning all of the just To be sure. Instead of learning my essays I'm thinking of learning the points and the studies and then just wording them in the exam because learning them word for word seems like a waste of time given that I have other subjects to revise for aswell

    I have two retakes this week Monday and Tuesday for English and P.E (the most underrated, work heavy A-Level to exist) then my life is PSYA3/4 until June 8th and 14th, which I think is enough time to learn 9-15 essays. Good luck!

    I still have history to do in the same week as psya3 and English in the same week and psya4 so it is going to be a busy few weeks! Hopefully we can learn everything in time😁 Good luck also! All the best

    4+6/8 marks worth really, because they wouldn't ask for it separately, but I would use it if they asked for one or more as a secondary point

    When writing about exogenous zietgebers did you go into detail about the CLOCK-CYCLE/PER-TIM cycle? I feel like there's already so much AO1 already in this section without going into detail about this cycle!

    If you want I can send you pics of my relationships and aggression notes in exchange for your gender and schizophrenia notes?

    Do you think they could ask us a question on narcolepsy, sleepwalking or insomnia individually? Or do they always ask for eg explanations on insomnia and/or narcolepsy?
