I struggled with the strengths of determinism..... I just spoke about applications ect. We do crime and health, there is so much content in paper 3 how are you feeling about it??

so my teacher said there are very few schools who do the pre u in psych (like 2 others max) one of which is a private school lmao

Section C will probably be hard for me personally. Otherwise its just memorising a crap tonne of content. wbu?

D3 hopefully for durham... This is the first year my school have done the pre u psychology so its kinda hard to tell how we are all going to do. I did my course work on whether we recall infomation better when it is read to us or when we read it, and then spoke about how this is could be usefull when Drs are giving advise to patients ect...

oh crap i cant believe i forgot the congitive interview. crap. oh well. :/

yeah i reworded russano essentially. I had to evaulate kassin and sommers on the spot to be honest. but yeah hopefully. it went okay. Grade boundaries look really high to be honest

I dont know how generous they are with the marking ( my teacher said such few people do it that there are like 2 markers)

I do not understand why the grade boundaries are so high, especially when there is so much to remember! 2 markers omg....!!!! We are the only school doing the 'health' section as well...
