    As i am basically messed up with exams coming all at once (business and psychology always next to eachother), im really trying to revise for my psychology resit today, and i feel that i could really do with some help on gaining A02 marks, as i can always remember the theory/study, but never have the skills/knowledge to really delve deep into grabbing the A02 marks. (i usually put some *******s like this is unecologically valid and thats it)

    any help and ideas that anyone could give would be a great help to me!

    many thanks,

    I usually suggest why it does/doesn't support theories and wouldn't be relevant to everyday life kinda thing...Plus all the crap about low (not lacking) ecological validity etc. :yawn:

    Well what I do if i can never recall any of the specific bits to that thoery
    is to talk about: reductionism, determinism, nature/nuture debate etc
    Also always try to elaborate each point till your bored of it, I've been told the examiners love it :\
    so if you can only think of it lacking ecological vaildty; then really explian why it is, how it is etc. A lot of the AO2 stuff can apply to most things. So try to make a list of the main things you can apple to any Q's and learn them.
    Best of Luck
