How did everyone find it? Was it what you were expecting? I was surprised actually I thought the questions would be really focused following last years paper. It was a good paper. kind of annoyed that I ran out time on attachment tho. I spent too long on social influence. * errgg, curses*. I had to sacrifice the Romanian orphan 6 marker and the Ainsworth limitation question 3. Nevertheless, I hope marks from the other sections will even it out. Feeling optimistic!! 🎉🎉🎊🎉. Just have to cram & smash paper 2 now. Good luck people!! ✌😭😁

Hope it went well for you guys!!

If I remember correctly (correct me, anyone, if I'm wrong)

Social influence-

Outline Authoritarian personality as an explanation for obedience. (3)
One limitation (3)
No 12 marker Just 8 marker on how consistency and commitment influence minority influence.
Then a bunch of RM questions a person replicated one of Asch's task difficulty variation studies. Multiple choices on the ratio and percentage, both 1 mark. You had to work out the mean (3). Write a suitable hypothesis (3). Then you had applied social influence to task difficulty, talk about the 2 groups. (2)

Memory

Describe evaluate research into the effects of anxiety of EWT. Referring it to a convo between 2 peeps. (12)

Then some RS questions.

You were given a study. Teacher makes pupils witness a crime. You have to give a technique used in the CI (1) then say what instructions you would follow that with. (2)

You had to identify the experimental design being used and identify an advantage. (3)
Then you had to say how a random sample would make it better (4)

(1) mark question missing. Can't remember it.


Attachment.

Describe research into Romanian orphan studies and institutionalisation. Something along those lines anyway. (6)

Identify three behavioural characteristics associated with Ainsworth strange situations theory. (3)

One limitation, apart from ethics. (3)

Describe and evaluate Bowlby monotropic theory (8)

Applied question on the research into the role of the father in attachment. (4)

Lol, I just realised I nearly memorised the whole paper, be it just 1 mark question off. 🔥

Hope this helps!! Good luck with A2 exams. 🎉🎊🎊
