    I don't do relationships but I can't see group aggression coming up as last year the agg question was evol explanations of aggression I believe - and I looked at the mark scheme and they said both group displays and infidelity/ jealousy were valid answers so I'm conflicted

    Gender - think it's hard to say
    Eating - possibly neural mechanisms or factors influencing eating behaviour
    Aggression - I think neural / hormonal or maybe genetics

    For gender it is hard to say. Consider last year they brought in genes and hormones as well as gender schema (again)
    For eating and aggression I leaning more to the biological side but once again we cannot be sure

    Factors influencing looks spot on for eating.

    Psychological explanations maybe as a 12 marker?

    I am looking at 5 topics in case I don't like a question - relationships and sleep and gender and aggression- insane 🤕

    Wow how did you manage to learn them all 😩
    My main problem is going to be timing as I have so much to write and always end up going over 30 mins per essay

    Out of interest - how lon are each of your essays on average/ how many points do you make?

    If gender schema comes up again I will have a breakdown in the exam

    I agree with u - although gender is a hard one to predict it's best to learn them all

    Hey does anyone have a high scoring essay for social influences on gender - I think mine is very basic and I'm worried they may ask it!

    I don't mind sharing any of my notes with anyone who also needs a little bit of last minute help, thanks!☺️
