    For those of you who are doing PSYA4 Anomalistic psychology:

    Does anyone else think that magical thinking and/or psychic mediumship as an essay question is likely to come up?
    I think so, they weren't in the 2015 paper.

    Any ideas for predictions on: depression, addiction, aggression, relationships, eating behaviour and gender?

    No clue at all. But since there were 2 papers because of the van scandal, do you think they will put the original paper up for this year or not? If they don't then that could work in our favour.

    They obviously can't as half the candidates took it so they've seen the paper. That's the entire reason why thy had to create a replacement paper anyway, so yes. I don't think they will put up the original.

    How do you revise for AS/A2? (I'm retaking AS to increase my chances of an A*). I just don't really know how to go about it all. I'm having trouble retaining the information. How do you make sure you remember everything? Do you use mind-maps, revision cards?

    Anyone know if you can get asked a question just on neural mechanisms of aggression or just on hormonal mechanism of aggression? I'm doing essay plans and I'm not sure whether to seperate them out or not..

    Yes, they can be asked as separate essays.

    AS grade B
    A2 predicted A

    for unit 3 i'm doing sleep relationships and aggression for unit 4 addiction depression and research methods.

    I subscribed and liked your video. That's actually a very good idea of revising! I do similar topics to you except I don't do relationships, I do gender instead. I look forward to more of your videos

    Hiya,

    Is anyone doing eating behaviour and Schizophrenia? If so, do you have an idea of which topics are most likely to come up this year or the best order to revise the topics in?

    Thank you

    Could a 24 marker be asked on sleep walking, it just seems that there is less content for this than narcolepsy and insomnia.

    For schizophrenia I think they could ask something (possibly 24 marker) on issues regarding classification and diagnosis, it came up last year as a 4 marker, but has not been a 24 marker since jan 12, so overdue in my opinion. Also don't think there would be a longer question on biological explanations due to being a 20 marker last year.
    Hope this helps you

    I'm betting on psychological therapies for schizophrenia.
