    But sometimes you might have to mention others as evaluation points.

    I think just for evaluation points and counter/supporting studies for the 12 markers

    Does anyone know what topics will be in Paper 1?

    And also, how many evaluation points do you need in 12 mark questions?

    In paper one there are 3 topics you will be tested on:

    1. Social Influence
    2. Memory
    3. Attachment
    *They will also test your knowledge on research methods!

    In 12 mark questions- if they are phrased "Describe and Discuss" you need to gain 6 marks on description (AO1) and 6 marks on discussion, i.e. evaluation points (AO3).

    In 8 mark questions, it is the same but just split up into 4 describe marks and 4 evaluate marks.

    NB: If they are phrased as "discuss" only then describe a little, but don't waste too much time on description- they want to hear you evaluate the theories/studies/whatever-it-is-they-want-you-to-evaluate.


    Hope this helps!

    I find how they mark Psychology to be a bit vague because my teacher says that it doesn't matter how many points you have because that doesn't necessarily equate the number of marks you have, e.g. if I write down 6 points that's not going to be 6 marks...

    How do I know how much a mark really is??

    My teacher said for each mark in the evaluation you make a point, then explain your point

    A lot of confusion in here

    I've attached a checklist for everything you need to know in all topics. The Red/bolded are the studied you NEED to know fully.

    There's also a powerpoint on how to answer essay questions and how to use a mark scheme.

    6 marks on evaluation doesn't necessarily mean you have to make 6 evaluation points- maybe you could just make three evaluation points and expand on these points. Hope that helps
