Hey I know this may not be relevant but I really need help! I'll be taking the WJEC exam on the 16th and I looked at the example paper and when I saw the compare and contrast question I panicked a little.

A psychologist needs to explain to his client why they may be better using a therapyfrom a biological approach rather than a therapy from the cognitive approach. Usingyour knowledge of both approaches compare and contrast the cognitive andbiological approaches and their therapies.

In class we have been answering general compare and contrast questions "Compare and contrast the biological and cognitive approach" and have been using the NURDS structure. We haven't discussed the therapies. And with this question do we compare the approaches in general (e.g. the approaches involvement in the nature/ nurture debate and if it's deterministic or not) and then mention the therapies or is the question about therapies in general?
Thanks!
Good Luck

I don't do WJEC either but I'm sure all they're asking is for your application of knowledge of both psychological approaches and how you would apply them to the particular situation given, in other words: "compare and contrast the biological approach to the cognitive approach", they wouldn't ask anything that you haven't learnt in class I hope this helps and gl

The 12 marker will be assesed mostly on how you structure you answers. The bullets poinst they give you need to be in PEC and why you would choose the design/sampling method. You need include the following, research questions, design,,sample , ethics in a order as if you were writing a story. Thats whatbwe have been told. Good luck.

What's PEC?
PEC example:
P: I will use a questionnaire because it will allow me to gain quantatative data.
E: Then link it back to the study how you will gain the data
C Then link , quanatative data will make it easy for my results to be compared

Hope that helps
