Hi, I'm doing AQA psychology A Level. Does anyone have any predictions about what may come up as 16 markers in paper one? Or for: forensics, relationships, schizophrenia or approaches?

I personally think the examiners get wet for comparison essays where they want you to discuss 2 or more sections rather than just the 1. For example they give you a little sentence and be like Outline the biological approach and discuss in comparison with at least one other approach and you have to say which one is better/worse. Or maybe Discuss at least 2 factors affecting attraction or Discuss explanations for Schizo or Outline one or more factors affecting obedience. And for issues and debates they might ask you something like Discuss two or more examples of culture bias in psychological studies or Outline some examples of reductionism in psychological research, and discuss arguments for and against reductionist explanations.
Tbh im most scared about issues and debates as I hate those 'discuss and reference the statement above' questions and in issues and debates they have the most confusing ones

I personally believe but I could be wrong that for social influence these topics may come up.
Normative and informational social influence
Zimbardo
Two explanations of obedience
Outline and evaluate the authoritarian personality
Minority influence
Social change
And for memory
MSM
Long term memory
Explanation for forgetting
Anxiety and EWT
Cognitive interview
I’m currently seeing for the next 2 topics
