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?

I try to do 10 Ao1 points and then 8 evaluation points and then as many issues and debates as I can remember...then pray

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!☺️
