    Oh my, you are like the miracle which i have been seeking since beginning A-levels. I'm resitting the old spec Unit 2 exam this summer. Would it be possible for you to help me with the Social Influence section and some small parts of Stress?

    I understand the theory behind Stres, but the studies are of no use to me. Couldn't remember any, other than Kiecoltt-Glaser and Johanssen (?). Otherwise for Social influence, Milgram is all I know >.<

    Firstly, what exam board are you on? and what resources do you currently have?

    and are you aware of Assessment Objectives?

    A01; Knowledge and understanding
    A02; Application, Analysis, Evaluation and Interpretation.
    I think that's what you mean?

    Ok, here's some information for Stress. All of this I've found from <http://www.resourcd.com/search/search_do/1470605> which is a website teachers use to share resources. (Attached)

    This website <http://www.loopa.co.uk/aqa-psychology-revision-resources/>
    Saj self-taught Psycholgoy and got an A*. He has produced revision guides for every unit. I've bought 2 (£8 each) and they're very good. Pretty sure he has videos and things on the site for free though.

    Key studies for Stress:
    Kiecolt-Glaser 1995 stress and the immune system.
    Rahe et al (1970) life changes
    Marmot (1997) Workplace stressors
    Friedman and Roseman (1974) stress and cardiovascular disorders

    Key studies for Social Influence:
    Asch (1951) majority influence.
    Moscovici (1969) minority influence.
    Milgram (1963) obedience.
    Zimbardo (1973)

    All of these should be supported/opposed by at least one other theory. You don't need to remember dates, but names of key studies are expected.
