I have written the paper up in the exact format and the paper is here below. Thank me!!!!!!!!!!!!





Section A
Social Influence

Answer all questions in this section




01 Briefly outline how two variables investigated by Ash were found to affect conformity [2 marks]

02 Explain how social influence processes contribute to social change [4 marks]

03 SCENARIO:

A head teacher wanted to increase recycling in his school. He arranged for the canteen to have three bins, one for cardboard, one for plastic and one for food waste. A month later. A psychology teacher decided to see if the students were recycling. One lunch break she watched different students going to the bins. Each time, she wrote down which of the three types of waste they recycled. She positioned herself so that the students could not see her but so that she had a clear view of the bins.

03.1 Identify one type of observation being used in this investigation. Justify your answer [2 marks]

03.2 Explain sampling technique the teacher used to record her observations [2 marks]

As the different year groups had lunch at different times, the teacher was able to present her results as three year groups, as shown in table 1

Table 1: The number of items each year group recycled
For the table, check the image.





03.3 What do the results in Table 1 suggest about the recycling initiative? Refer to data in Table 1 in your answer [4 marks]

03.4 Explain one way in which the design of this observation could have been improved

04 Describe and evaluate the procedure of Zimbardo’s research into social roles [8 marks]




Section B
Memory

Answer all questions in this section




05 Describe the phonological loop component of the working memory model [3 marks]

06 Suggest one way in which the working memory model might be better explanation of short-term memory than the multi-store-model [1 marks]

07 SCENARIO:

Toby and Sarah both studied AS Psychology at the same school. Toby’s class was taught in the school lecture theatre while Sarah’s class had their lessons in a science classroom. Both students sat their final psychology exam in the school lecture theatre.

Which student is likely to perform worse in their final psychology exam? Use your knowledge of explanations of forgetting to justify your answer [4 marks]

08 Outline techniques used in the cognitive interview and discuss the effectiveness of these techniques on the accuracy of eyewitness testimony [8 marks]

09 SCENARIO:

A psychologist was at a concrete where someone threw a bottle onto the stage and seriously injured one of the band members. The psychologist decided to sue this incident to investigate the accuracy of eye witness testimony. She asked 10 people who saw the bottle thrown, if they would allow her to interview them about this. A week later she interviewed each witness separately in a quiet room and asked them the same closed question about what they had seen. She recorded their answers. It took her two and half hours in total to interview 10 witnesses.

09.1 Calculate how many hours it would have taken the psychologist to interview all 1000 people who were at the event. Show your workings. [2 marks]

09.2 Identify one type of data the psychologist collected in this study. Explain your answer [2 marks]

09.3 Investigator effects may influence this study. Explain how the investigation might be modified to reduce these effects [2 marks]

09.4 The psychologist submitted a report of her investigation to a journal for peer review. What would she expect the process to involve [2 marks]

B A baby smile and her mother smile back

C A mother moves her head in time with her baby

D A mother smiles and the baby smiles back


12 Briefly outline the findings of one animal study of attachment and explain one criticism of the study [4 marks]

13 SCENARIO:

Three one-year-old girls were taken to nursery by their mothers. The girls each reacted differently towards their mothers as they left. Bhavi ignored her mother. Ola appeared a little upset. Pippa did not want her mother to leave and was very upset. The girls also responded differently when the new nursery worker approached them. Bhavi was not at all upset, Ola was moderately anxious but Pippa was very anxious.

13.1 With reference to the different attachment types as seen in the Strange Situation, identify the most likely attachment type of Bhavi, Ola and Pippa. Use the information provided to help you [3 marks]

13.2 Briefly outline the behaviour each girl is likely to display when her mother collects her from nursey. [3 marks]

Is it unlikely that these topics will come up in the A level paper or will the questions be similar?
