    Did anyone else do this paper today? Im doing A2s and retook this paper today and was wondering what other people thought of it. I though it went reasonably well but I wasn't too keen on the research methods section. Any opinions?

    I am also retaking and did this paper. I good the first section slightly strange as it wasn't really on research methods, the graph particularly confused me. What type of graph did you do?

    A lot of my friends wrote about mead's cross cultural study for that one. I wrote about the babies and their mothers, with the mothers only encouraging sex-typed behavior.

    I'm sure the mark scheme will consist of a list of studies that all have some sort of link to sex-role stereotyping; as long as you explained it I'm sure it'll be fine

    I did Furnham & Farragher. How did you find the essays?

    I thought they were quite nice! Struggled for AO1 points to start off with as I'm used to the 4/8 structure instead of 5/5 - It's surprisingly hard to think of one extra AO1 point! But I got there in the end

    How about you?

    I surprisingly liked this paper
    The essays were god-sent with the psychodynamic approach and biological explanation for gender

    I did a bar graph, do you think that's okay?
    And yeah the whole graph being in the first section threw me off too

    Hopefully we've all passed

    I'm not too sure about a bar chart for the graph question... Only reason I say that is becuause of the negative correlation the results produced. But you never know! It might be under the accept section in the mark scheme, have to hope for a kind marker!

    Unit 3 I'm doing a lot for at the moment, forgotten quite a bit. Unit 4 we're already half way through the revision thanks to unit 1 revision!

    I do need to focus on the "Two limitations of..." And the eclectic approach essays for unit 4 though.

    Yeah unit 4 sucks in general. I'm really struggling with research methods in particular, especially since my teacher has barely gone over it :/

    Aww that's good! I feel like Unit 1 has definitely helped in terms of approaches
    I love the eclectic approach, I fell like it combines all the best parts of each approach which makes it easier to remember

    Good luck with your revising guys!

    I agree with research methods it was really weird, no hypothesis or experimental design???? And thought the essays were really nice but the gender short questions were dodgy
