Edexcel Psychology SynopticWatch
- I'm a little unsure since I had a pretty awful teacher. Is it basically all essay-based material
on issues/debates etc? We did a little work on 'is psychology a science/nature-nurture'.
Thanks in advance. Jon

As far as I know, we have 2 essays to do in the exam, on those sorts of subjects, probably ethical
stuff as well. Its meant to draw from stuff right accross the board that we've done for the last two
years. However, hardly anyone I know is revising for it, since, similar to you, we have very little
idea of what we should be revising.

We're expected to be able to write 20 marks essays (8AO1, 8AO2, B2, C2) on such things as the contributions of an approach to psychology, and/or to society. The nature/nurture debate. Whether psychology is a science or not. Ethical issues regarding humans and/or animals. Qualitative vs quantitative methods. Distinguishing between the different approaches (usually just catergorised into behaviourist [learning], psychodynamic, cognitive, and physiological. And finaly the social and moral implications of research, and social control.
So not much!!! We've been advised to have a couple of studies in mind i.e. Milgram so that we can use them as evidence for our arguments.
Good luck everyone,
