Yeah I did, I thought it went alright the questions weren't too hard. The debate really threw me off though, especially because my teacher had predicted that it was likely to be the positive or psychodynamic debate so I wasn't very prepared for the Cognitive approach. I also felt that all the questions required you to write quite a long, I never usually run out of time but I found timekeeping very challenging this time. What about you?

Yeah same, I didn't think the questions were too bad but I completely ran out of time! Lots of people af my school said they also ran out of time for theirs but because I hadn't revised enough (oops) I didn't know the content well enough to write the answers down as quickly, so I ended up missing out three questions 😶 Slightly screwed...! Not looking forward to C2 Friday...

No but you can get a good idea from looking at last years grade boundaries, I'll link it to the next comment!

Yeah I was pretty happy with it, especially the sketch graph and mean which I thought were pretty easy marks to pick up! Preferred it to C1.

OMG YES!! I have Religious studies monday, which is so content heavy I haven't had a change to even look at C3 yet!! Stress is alright, but schizophrenia can be quite complex once you move away from the bio explanations What modules are you doing?

Yeah thursday, I think i’m just going to try memorising my notes and do a couple of past paper questions. Is there any way to predict what’s coming out and do you know if we have to include researcher’s name and dates because i’ve heard we don’t need them?

I don't think that the dates are important but it's a good idea to try and put the names down. My teacher told us as long as it's not a really well known psychologist (e.g. Milgram/Raine/Freude) then if you can't remember the name in the exam just make it up, as long as the study is relevant it shouldn't matter! So I guess its not too important

It's unlikely they will use the same questions as last year, certainly they won't word them exactly the same, but it's possible.
