I'm a self taught student, so I need an indicator of how I'm doing, plus I work better when solidifying knowledge in pairs. Anyone taking new spec A2 pyschology that wants to revise via skype sometime?x

What topics have you self-taught? There may be overlap with old spec, where i could help. Yours shall just go into a little more detail than mine!

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'll try

Anything specific?

I'm not familiar with stress but I'll give it a go.

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?

I have a revision guide and a text book for AQA.
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.
