SORRY NO PREDICTIONS: BUT WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THAT 'STRESS' IS NOT ON THIS SYLLABUS FOR EDEXCEL AS-LEVEL [6PSO2] THIS MONDAY?
CAUSE I THINK THAT I AM REVISING 'psychodynamic approach' & 'biological approach' & 'learning approach' AND THAT IS ALL: YEAH?
CONFUSED BECAUSE ON YOUTUBE AS-LEVEL REVISE CHANNEL THERE IS A SECTION ON STRESS!!

So: My prediction is it is that it is not on stress
will it be on bandura et al and mundane realism, generalisabilty & ecological validity of their research from 1961?
Like: How would you improve their experiment and account for extraneous // confounding variables and ethics?

THIS DEVOTES SEVERAL POWERPOINT SLIDES TO 'STRESS' BUT I AM HOPING THAT EDEXCEL DOES NOT INCLUDE THIS AS IT IS A LOT TO REVISE!!
THE REST OF THE SIDE SHOW IS USEFUL TO REVISE FROM THOU: ANY IDEAS?

Yeah stress isn't on this paper, there's a new specification for edexcel so stress might be on that but on the resit tomorrow its just psychodynamic learning and biological

Well thanx 4 replying bethdean & co:
I'm pretty happy that i have penned enough to bare pass as an as-level but on money (1975) question i seriously left some blank space & crossed through 'gender' for 'schizophrenia': Because? I do not know!!
So that must be about 12 marks off for me & i should have listened to my 'intuition': But fingers-crossed & well done everyone else !!
Ps: What did we put for the bandura short answer question?
Because i caved & ticked 'bobo doll' & i don't think that is quite the answer

Think that i passed & managed some biological 'chat' about chromesomes, neurotansmitters, the xy heriditary sex chromosomes & synapses but i feel i could have done better all round: I only spent 1 month or less revising (2 weeks on writing notes) and was still reading material that was 'news' to me in the library lobby before the exam
i feel relieved it is all over & remember to repat a module is about £125 over or under
plus if you learn from your 'mistakes' you may well ber prepared for next time: I hope so!!

OOPS!! Actually I got a U grade at AS-Level! Do you even get a certificate for a grade U?
I rung Edexcel about declining the grade: not an option anymore?
But the lady said I could still resit the AS-Level.
Should I shell out for remarking or repeat in another year: DILEMUIS DE REVOITRE RECOUOSIPSE RITE #GUYS#??
