Hi I know that you posted this a while ago, but just in case anyone else was looking for it: there was only 1 16 marker (the paper was on biopsychology, research methods, and approaches), and it was outline and eval operant conditioning for the behaviorist approach (Ao2 16 marker). The main topics were psychodynamic approach eval, defense mechanisms for approaches, functions of the brain, synaptic transmission, similarities and differences for brain scanning, the 3 rhythms, and split-brain research (outline and eval 8 marker), and for research methods know statistical tests (although you don't need to do the sign test), observations (12 marker on this!!), explaining distributions from a table, and scattergraphs mainly. Hope this helps someone, and if it's the night before and you're stressed out just remember that even if you absolutely **** up these exams, there are a million more opportunities that will come your way, there's more to life than this!!:smile:
