Here's what I got for relationships and aggression:

Relationships -
1. Discuss sexual selection and reproductive behaviour. Anisogamy, difference between gametes, women more selective than men etc.. Evaluation could be Clark & Hatfield and relevance in modern life.
2. Discuss social exchange theory. Thibault and Kelley, judge satisfaction in terms of profit, comparison levels, 4 stages. Evaluation mostly weaknesses, measurements are vague, assumes cost/rewards are of equal value, economic metaphor unrealistic, ignores equity.

Aggression -
Q1 & 2 are the same.
3. Explain fixed action pattern. Automatic behavioural response, triggered by innate releasing mechanism, universal, inevitably runs to completion, used in ethology. Refer to siamese fish from scenario.
4. Discuss dispositional explanation for institutional aggression. Importation model by Irwin and Cressey. Evaluation: supported Camp and Gaes, refuted by Wilson.

The median answer was 7. The sample was 15, the median was 23 so one score was 23 leaving 14 scores. In order for it to be the middle number there had to be an equal number above and below so that is 14/2 = 7 so 7 is the correct answer.

Dont worry i ran out of time just scribbled anything i could remember. You wouldn't loose many marks as long as you had other points in a bit of depth.

I doubt it! Plus, you only get a maximum 6 marks for description and there were 4 things you could've talked about. I think it's better to get in depth about rewards, costs, comparison level and give plenty of examples to show deeper understanding than just state the stages!

I forgot to write about the heritability coefficiant when i was writing about the nativist debate! Do you think I’ll lose alot of marks over it? (I’m kicking myself cause I knew it as well)

Also, I was a little confused on the forensics bit about showing participants negative photos and then taking part in an anger management programme. What could I have put?

you could have said they'd know how they answered before so would just change their answer (social desirability bias/please-u effect)

I said using two sets of photos would have reduce order effects and so using two sets of photos would prevent boredem or demand characteristics but the photos would have to be similar to control as many variables as possible

But surely it would be if there had to be an equal number on either side, you would use the formula n/2 with n being 15 and so the 7.5th value as the median was 23, 7.5th value is the 7th and 8th added and divided by 2, which meant that the numbers before that would be 6 participants, so the answer is 6?

I did the same might just not get as many marks. I wouldn't worry because you can't change it now so don't stress

No because n =14 as one of the scores was 23 so the remaining scores are 14.

I think I wrote about if they had two pairs of photos then they could easily compare results and give a valid answer, would that be okay? I think I mentioned how I’d do it as well

I dont think you will lose that many Mark's considering AO1 is only 6 marks. As long as you have said enough for AO1 that can be worth 6 Marks 👍

I've always learnt it at Gender stability being 4-6 and gender constancy as 6-7+ . This is wat is written in the psychology text book that I use so I stuck to those numbers.
