(this is for the old specification of Psychology, just to be clear for the edexcel examination of psychology that has currently past papers ranging from January 2009 to June 2015)

My predictions for unit's 1 big (12 marks) question are:

a) Milgram's agency theory, i think it's a possibility yet not one of the most likely as in 2014 there was a study of obedience so they might avoid choosing obedience again.

b) Theory of memory, a key subject of the material, it has been 4 years from the last paper it was chosen, it's another possible choice.

c) Social Identity Theory, it was only entered once as this big Q in 2011 with a case study given, but i think case study or not it's going to be this year's big question.

d) Comparing of methodology, Qualitative VS Quantitative, Lab experiments VS Natural experiments etc. GOD I HOPE NOT but it's unfortunately another very possible choice.

I would rank these according to possibility with: Social Identity Theory 45%, Comparing Methodology 25%, Milgram's Agency theory 20%, Theory of memory 10%. DO NOT TAKE THESE FOR GRANTED THESE ARE PREDICTIONS.

Of course, can't base revision on predictions true true, but this does help! Thank you

I heard there might be more application questions, do you have any predictions for those? Like "how does Multi store model explain why...." I guess that's what they mean

yeah, you should consider that in my predictions application questions are included. I have noticed that from all the questions in the exam they want to see application to real life, like in questions concerning the agency theory the standard application they want to see is that 'it can explain the atrocities of WW2 and how german soldiers carried out orders without question as they were agents to an authoritative figure in this case Hitler'. The easiest theory/issue for them to question as an application to real life is the social identity theory, as was done in the January 2011 with the case study, they will most likely pose a key issue like football fan violence and ask to explain this by SIT.

Thanks a lot! Also do you know if animals(ethics/generalising to human population, etc) will be in unit 2? I was taught it and studies for it but I don't think it's on the new spec

Meh there's just too little on animals to create a big mark question out of it. I haven't went through many past papers for unit 2 so I won't make any predictions yet i I will be sure to do so once I finish psychology unit 1
