Do you think the Watson & Rayner and Sherif comparison will be on themes/ socially sensitive research or do you think they'll all be separate questions???

the socially sensitive research will be the 20 marker [not watson and rayner and sherif]
comparison of themes will be 12 marker as that is what it always is on paper 3 [not watson and rayner and sherif]
and the watson and rayner and sherif question is the things i mentioned hope that helps!!

Thank you so much!! I've literally never been taught anything about paper 3 so I'm really struggling with it now. By looking at past papers it looks like the 12 markers are always linked to a scenario, so how would they use comparison using themes to link to the scenario as it seems like a really broad issue & debate so I'm nts how it would be done??

If you look at the past paper for 2019 for example, it mentions a scenario and relates it to social impact theory
How you would structure it:
Paragraph 1 and 2:
AO1 - description of a feature of social impact theory
AO2 - application of the description - apply it to the scenario
AO3 - one strength of social impact theory

Paragraph 3 and 4:
AO1 - description of a feature of social impact theory
AO2 - application of the description - apply it to the scenario
AO3 - one weakness social impact theory

Make sure your response is balanced! For example one strength for paragraph 1, another strength for paragraph 2, one weakness for paragraph 3 and another weakness for paragraph 4 [hope this helps! :smile:]

me. i genuinely think they can do anything considering the 16 markers haven’t been the hardest topics and there was a literal 16M on attachment
i feel like aggression could feature one, maybe issues and debates
do you have any resources that you could possibly share? my teacher left the school and we haven't ever gone through issues and debates and this is really confusing for me.

have u not done issues and debates at all? is there any other topics u haven’t been taught
well I haven't had a teacher for a couple of months and my school never bothered finding a replacement so we haven't been taught issues and debates at all, I've managed to teach myself most of the topics but I just have a problem with issues and debates the most.
