Hey, haven't seen another discussion page for Edexcel Psychology yet. How did everyone's paper 1 go?

Mine did not go well. Well, I thought it did until the last five minutes when I realised I had another 2 questions to go which I got about 2 paragraphs on the last one.

Same here! I ran out of time at the end too
I was annoyed at the lack of Biological psychology module, and the lack of Classic and Contemp studies! It was almost all scenario questions

I thought some of the questions were really weirdly worded and vague. Definitely when it comes to applying behaviour to cognitive in terms of nature???

If you go by a minute and a half for each mark then we should really get 2 hours 15 minutes which would've felt slightly more comfortable. Otherwise it's just a minute and a half for long answers.

For the first issues and debates question, did it ask for 'theories', 'studies', or 'theories and studies'? Or was it research?

To write everything that I wanted to say I would have needed at least an extra 30 mins, especially on that 12 marker.

Potentially. If most people, other than our Joe friend here, missed some q's out then I bet they'll be pretty low. Can't keep em high if we only answered 75% of the paper.

So was the result significant? What was your final response?

No, it doesn't exceed 0.7-something so therefore isn't significant

From the values on the Critical Value table it wasn't significant so I said the dude should reject the experimental hypothesis.
