Aqa AS psychology examWatch this thread
there was this question on the types of distribution and i had 0 clue on how to answer it
i got the 2nd question wrong, it was like describe social change
for the maternal deprivation question, i wrote about rutter, some czech case study where they were 7 years old and depressed but had managed to not be depressed and be healthy teenagers, and a critical and sensitive period. i think i may have confused monotropic theory and maternal deprivation. grade boundaries are gonna be lower than 2019 im pretty sure but i dont think it will be that much lower. i reckon 94/144 is needed for an A and 82/144 is needed for a B
It was okay, not many questions on research methods (luckily) but the 4 marker on the distribution threw me a little! Research methods in general will always be the worst questions of the paper!
i didnt revise maternal deprivation and wrote a single messy A01 paragraph and one A03 paragraph and mentioned rutters institution study about how they had a ton of caregivers. Im praying on grade boundaries to be lower cuz that went horribly for me. what is everyones predicitons on grade boundaries.
BRO WHY WAS THIS EXAM SO SPECIFICALLY HARD TO MANAGE TIME. everyone said they ran out of time, i missed a good 14 marks left unanswered as i had no time left, bare in mind i’ve averaged 82% on paper 1s before
i found it decent tbh, the 12 marker was great but i feel like my ao3 could've been more specific to the textbook- i talked abt clive wearing and the WMM and diff types of ltm. the distribution question threw me, and the 8 marker could have been better bc i was struggling to remember key info but i referred to bowlby's 44 thieves study
what did you write for definition of social change and for the 12 marker on multi store model?
Definition of social change is the gradual process of minority influence changing the viewpoint of the majority of society and I also mentioned the snowball effect and socio-crypto amnesia just to be on the safe side.
