Last year's paper is the only past paper there has been so it's really difficult to judge. If I remember, last year we had Asch, Lopez/Harlow, Strange Situation, one of the memory models (but I can't remember which).

I don't know what, but my teacher thinks an essay on social influence (section a) will be coming up, as the paper before had an essay on memory and attachment only, obviously I don't know the topic as there are loads of options in social influence that could be an essay...
Last years paper:
Social influence -
How the minority influence the majority (flexibility, etc.) There were two questions on this.
Questions about research methods e.g. self report.
Asch, variables affecting conformity, e.g. task difficulty and two limitations of Asch.
Multi-store model: only asked about short term memory.
Long-term memory e.g. procedural, episodic.
Cognitive interview (multi choice question)
Working memory model --- Essay.
----------- Eyewitness testimony, forgetting and the coding, capacity, duration experiments (Peterson and Peterson, Baddeley, etc.) didn't come up. I wouldn't except the essay to be the working memory model again.
Romanian orphanage (multi choice)
Internal working model
Strange situation, Ainsworth ---- Essay.
- I haven't looked at paper two, give it a look and just make note of the topics to come up and what hasn't. Make a note of the essay type questions because these probably won't be an essay for us this year.
- Not many questions on research methods came up, I've seen example papers with more questions than that and there is a wide range of research topics to know so I can't help you at all!
- https://www.loopa.co.uk/ - Loopa normally do predictions and are really close to what does come up, I haven't seen anything for our paper yet but it shouldn't be soon...
~ Goodluck to us both!
