Hi
I take the edexcel gcse psychology.

In my psychology textbook, they teach something like a debate topic (like holism vs reductionist) at the end of every topic chapter. In the memory chapter of my book, they talk about reductionist vs holism. And in psychological problems chapter, they talk about nature vs nurture.

So you know how there is a 9 mark debate question in the gcse exam right?

I was unsure if these debate related questions be (i) always based on a fixed topic like how my textbook arranged them (e.g. nature vs nurtures is ALWAYS about psychological problem) , or (ii) if ANY debate question can be themed on ANY topics of psychology (nature vs nurture can possibly be about memory?)

Sorry for my long question but I'll very appreciate it if you bother to reply!
THanks!

You should show understanding and combine your knowledge from different topics

I think that they can be applied to a variety of topics from your book
