C5 was a bad question. I used genetics for part A

and used the DSM for part B which iv now heard was wrong! I also wrote about when psychologists faked being mentally ill and how easy it was to be diagnosed with something they didn't have.

Section 1 was FINE! section 2 and C3 + c5 were HELL

mmmm well i dunno.... i thought it was quite weird actually alot of questions asked for ONE thing, they usually ask for TWO!!
wot did u get for the features of a good sample - the one for 3 marks, we thought it was quite alot for that, but wrote every pair of target population had an equal chance of being chossen

I didnt know what to put for that, i just put that the people selected matched the target they were looking for. Wide age spread, and people who will give a variety of answers to find out the general trend in what you are looking for.

For the Good Sample question you had to write that It was Representative, The Target Population and you had to say also that you had to be able to come to a Generalistion about the experiment. Did everyone say it was postive correlation?? What did you say about the weakness of a questionaire and what about the ethics? Did anyone do Intelligence??? I thought the paper was not bad! i didnt do those questions yous are talkin about - i did anti social behaviour which was a gr8 question and i did intelligence in Section C. I have to agree attachment and stress were good questions!

Alli xx smile.gif Exams are over now! Woo Hoo!! So happy!!!

For the research methods questions I put it was positive correlation and rambled on about it for a while. I really didn't know what to put for the was it ethical question! Anyone have any ideas?

Stress and Attachment were good for me but the atypical behaviour was hard! I wrote about schizophrenia from the medical/biological point of view and then rambled on about Rosenhan for the second question. I found that unfair that it was 14 marks on a question that didn't seem very clear at all. All in all, it was pretty good.
The race is long, and in the end it's only with yourself.
