    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
    Thank you!

    My teacher gave me this

    It lists all the case studies we need to know for all the topics - found it very useful

    None for Memory!?
    I would strongly suggest looking at Loftus and Palmer and their research into EWT.

    I'm not sure how correct it is so use with caution as there may be absences as you've identified

    I uploaded one on page 2 that I used with my students.
    It covers all of year 2 as well.

    and there's a ppt on how to write essays.

    bowlby
    ainsworth
    schaffer and emerson

    what about rutters study? :confused:
    Don't forget the most important one - Van Ijzendoorn and Kroonenberg Cross-Cultural Studies (Germany being the most Insecure-Avoidant and Japan being the most Insecure-Resistant). These were also both multiple choice questions in one of the sample AQA papers for new spec.

    Have no idea how your teacher wrote none for Memory. There's tons, most being Baddeley.


    Memory should be
    Main studies very important:
    Baddeley coding - acoustically and semantically similar/dissimilar
    Atkinson and Shiffrin - Multistore model
    Badeeley & Hitch - Working memory model
    KF - Brain damaged patient, impaired phono loop but intact visuo-spacial sketchpad
    Loftus and Palmer - EWT - 'smashed', 'hit', 'bumped'
    Loftus and Zanni - EWT leading questions 'did you see the broken glass?'
    Loftus - Anxiety and the blue/green rucksack

    Supporting studies, not that important (theres tons only ones I can remember)
    Duration: Sperling (grid), Peterson & Peterson (trigrams), Bahrick et al (VLTM)
    Capacity: Jacobs digits/letters (digits easier to remember)
    Tulving - cue dependent forgetting
    Geiselman et al

    Personally I feel well prepared factually for the exam, but I have terrible memory and will likely forget all the names correlating to the studies, and half of the results and percentages are already long gone from my mind...

    As a whole I think the exam was okay - think I probably got something between 60 - 70%. What about you guys?

    the 12 marker question for attachment was something like "discuss the strange situation in assessing attachment types"
    did we have to outline it in detail? or is it mainly evaluation ??

    Is it possible that the Researcher A and Researcher B question wanted the type of animal as in primate and bird or did it want the species specifically?
