    Im glad it was helpful! It was nice to take a break from trying to memorise all these essays lool. To be on the safe side and ensure you get marked for an effective IDA, I would have a bulky contextualised IDA and then you can have a small paragraph on the limited. You want an obvious one like reductionism, determinism, nature vs nurture etc. Then you can have a side note on limited or a practical applications which still gives you A02 marks. Tbh I'm not 100% if being limited would be considered an IDA...I suppose if you talk about no consideration for other factors and a holistic approach is needed to aid in our understanding...but again I wouldn't take the risk lool. It's slightly subjective ish

    (+) Griffit and Guay - experimenter was rated high when PPs were rewarded/positively evaluated. Supports the need for reward in forming positive feelings which may lead to relationship development

    (+) Cate et al - study on 337 PPs. Found that PPs reported 'receiving rewards' as very important in a relationship

    (+) Aron et al - physiological support. PPs who measured highly on a questionnaire about love were found to have strong brain activity

    Hi thanks for the reply, it has definitely cleared things, last thing has aqa ever repeated questions the following year? Many of us are wondering whether to revise last years stuff in as much detail, so just wanted to know whether questions have been repeated.
    I think they did once for Gender I heard when I sat the exams myself? A girl was sitting it for the 3rd time apparently when I went to the exam centre and she said they repeated questions which threw her off the second time (hence the third re-sit).

    I'd have to double check the past questions but for PSYA4 and media psychology - I know they have definitely repeated 10 markers back to back. Generally they dont tend to for PSYA3 I think but its always wise to get a grasp of everything and then focus on the ones most likely so all your bases are covered.

    So all I'd say apart from what I've attached is I think your essay just needs to be more structured. By linking your paragraphs this will really help make your entire essay more cohesive and clear. Ultimately what you want to do is tell a logical story. So maybe this supports, this supports, but then this piece of research says otherwise. And further casting doubt is the lack of applicability to all genders blabla. I hope I'm making some sense lool

    Also sorry for my shorthand in the image! I do a lot of arrows and stuff :s

    PPs who said they were in love had stronger brain activity in the areas of the brain referred to as the "reward centres". This supports the link between love and rewards, and hence, the reward/need theory.

    The specification lists biosocial and gender dysphoria together... Does this mean they won't ever ask a question on gender dysphoria alone? If the question asks about the biosocial approach can we talk about the explanations for gender dysphoria and its evaluations etc.?
