AQA A level Psychology 2023 predictions

Does anyone have any predictions of the topics that may come up for the psychology papers from looking at older past papers, I don't plan on banking on any ideas for the exams I just thought it may be a helpful discussion to see if anyone has the same ideas? I saw it done for previous years and I thought it might be helpful for those sitting this years exams too

thank you for making this, I was looking for one!

one thing my teacher said about the RELATIONSHIPS option is that Social Exchange Theory is unlikely to be an 8/16 marker as it has been previously - might be a smaller question but unlikely to be a bigger question.

as for anything else, I’m quite lost and I’m eager to know what others think!
there's never been an 8 or 16 marker for media influences in aggression so i think that's likely to come up
my psych teacher thinks a 12 marker 'design a study' question will come up in research methods because even though last years exam had one it was answered badly.

and for approaches: the cognitive approach hasn't ever come up in an 8/16 marker, the humanistic approach has been asked about 3 times, there's been one question on both the biological and psychodynamic approach and there's been 2 questions on behaviorism. not really a prediction but i'm definitely going to structure my 16 marker planning based on the pattern.
