    For cultural influence on gender roles, what exactly is the A01? Would you class Buss' study/ Mead / Williams and Best as supporting research (A02) or would you put that with the A01, then evaluate those studies for A02? I just confused myself lol

    I've just used Mead as A01 and a bit of background on culture and gender roles. Other studies I used to support the influence of culture.

    For A01 I've got

    Munroe and munore
    Berry et al
    Williams and best
    Mead

    Then A02/ 3 is basically just evaluating their findings plus a bit of Ida such as cultural bias etc..

    There's this women on YouTube that goes through it, actually kinda good

    I would use it as an alternative explanation cos thats what the mark scheme says is a valid point for any essay, you can just include that evidence with it probs

    Guys, do you think using predictions from websites like loopa are effective/alright/acceptable?
    They have seemed to be quite accurate, and my thinking was that this was the final year and so they may have pulled a wild card and done like last years essays or something, but I think less of that happening now as the psya2 (unit 2) predictions were accurate and things came up that people predicted?
    Thoughts?

    I hope gender schema does come up. I think the reason AQA have already done it so many times is because of how difficult students find it.

    But, if they wanna raise grade boundaries back up from how low they were last year, they'll probably give an easy one. I'd say the easiest one is kholberg. biosocial or genes and hormones are the two most likely since they've never come up, and idk whether to find them difficult or not. genes and hormones is so weird since it feels like you're talking about sexual development rather than gender development, but in the end it's okay i guess

    The boundaries last year were higher than they had been before though! My teacher reckons there's a high chance of gender schema. Yeah I think that's why the bio doesn't come up. Biosocial has come up a few times.
