I thought the exam was pretty good in all honesty, I was expecting so much worse.

For the 15 marker regarding methodological issues, I spoke about how it's quite unethical and they typically use lab experiments so lacks ecological validity, in addition to talking about the scientific procedures etc - basically the issues with the method. With the 10 mark mental health question, I discussed how it usually adopts a less scientific approach and talked about the different explanations, such as the behaviourist explanation. It is also quite reductionist so it therefore lacks psychology as a science, but in terms of hypothesis testing, it can be considered a science from that perspective. I just attempted to ramble on as much as I could hoping I would achieve the marks!!

Made more or less the same points as you for the 15 marker - said it was unethical, highly controlled lab experiments meant it lacked ecological validity and unrepresentativeness. For the 10 marker I said lacked objectivity, didn't manipulate variables and the cognitive explanation used inductive reasoning which is scientific (no idea whether any of this is right but anyone does please let me know!) what did you put for the first 10 marker on child "how woods study can help teachers and children problem solve" and on child "how Raines study explains criminal behaviour through physiological factors" sorry for all the questions just honestly believe I failed core studies and this exam

For Woods study, I wrote about two paragraphs giving outline of the procedure, participants, results and conclusions, which followed on with how the results can be applied - giving back up evidence from Vygotskys Scaffolding theory and Brunners spiral curriculum theory, and basically how this can be applied - memory's a little foggy right now to be honest. For Raine's, I liked this question because I remember all the relevant information regarding the amygdala, parietal area etc and explained how these brain abnormalities in criminals make them commit crimes, such as dysfunctional amygdala correlating with a lack of fear as physiological factors basically refers to biological factors - just a fancy way of putting it!

To be honest, I feel the same - the exams comprised either weird, unfair, or mistaken questions. Hopefully the grade boundaries will accurately reflect the candidates' performance!!
