Personally, I don't think you can really predict Psychology as they could easily throw in a question that maybe previous students haven't done so well on in the past, just make sure you know enough to cover 16 markers in any event; 6 points per topic and in terms of evaluation, issues and debates, reliability, validity and approaches can be applied to nearly anything

Haha aw thank you! Just trying to help everyone out with what I know, since my revision method is literally going through the textbook a million times to make sure everything is memorised (probably not the best revision technique but I've been rolling with it since GCSE!)

Also guys please remember, issues and debates and approaches are the best go to evaluation points! For social influence, Asch, Zimbardo and Milgram all used male participants and so beta bias/androcentrism can be brought in. Temporal validity too, many of the studies were conducted decades ago and may not hold much use now! Also culture bias- most studies are based around western societies and so cannot be generalised to eastern societies. For memory, remember your case studies- KF, HM, Clive Wearing- good but also very idiographic! Can't always be generalised because they are so specific. Coding, capacity and duration research often uses artificial and meaningless stimuli, while the models of memory (multi-store model and working memory model) may be too brief, for example the MSM not going into detail about what types of memories specifically are in short term/long term memory, whilst working memory model lacks clarity over the central executive. For attachment, many of the conclusions are socially sensitive such as Isabella et al and their research into interactional synchrony, suggesting mothers should not return to work so soon in order to strengthen the attachment with interactional synchrony. Also ethical issues, such as with Lorenz and Harlow's research. However, many controlled, lab experiments such as Ainsworth's strange situation which increases the reliability of the method and the findings.For psychopathology, you should focus on the approach that is being used to explain the disorder and the strengths/weaknesses of them. Also, what is good/bad about drug treatments and CBT? Drug treatments are cost effective and allow people to go to work still, benefitting the economy. However, they may have side effects and don't tackle the problem completely. CBT is expensive and time consuming.
Hope everyone finds this useful and good luck!!

For 16 markers, how many evaluation points are you going for? would you say 5 is OTT?

Nope! 5 is what you should aim for definitely, for a 16 marker where the split is AO1/6 and AO3/10. 2 marks per evaluation, remembering to link back to why it is a strength/weakness at the end of it

I tend to structure my 16 markers like so:

A01 (Knowledge)
A01 introductory point to my evidence eg. A limitation of the monotropic theory is that it is socially sensitive
A03 (my evidence) It was found that...
A03 (elaboration and link) Therefore it can be suggested that..

I may go then and counter argument, but I would say 4 or 5 is probably your best bet, 4 will be fine if you have made an opening point and elaborated on each one )

I don't like to blow my own trumpet but I find the majority of research methods fairly easy to understand- I've looked at the tests because I find them hardest by far, learning the process of peer review and writing a reference is also super useful (that's been tested previous years but its only usually worth 2 marks) I'll definitely be focusing research methods revision on my paper 2 )

Research methods is definitely essential and a big part of it all, I'm pretty confident with it except sections of a scientific report and features of a science so will be having a quick look over them soon

I'm a little worried about attachment, has anyone got an idea as to what 16 marker may come up?

I can't make predictions as they are quite unpredictable with their papers, however, whatever you definitely don't know I'd go over tomorrow morning just to brush up on it
