I do AQA, and would like to know what may come up. The topics im doing are, relationships, aggression and eating behaviour in unit 3, and media and ocd in unit 4. Thanks : )

For unit 3, based on past questions and what hasn't come up, I think relationships will be maintenence of relationships or sexual selection, aggression will be social psychological explanations or genetic explanations, and eating behaviour will be a 24 marker on bio or psycho explanations for 1 eating disorder or a question about dieting.

Good luck everyone!!! :-)

I think it will be formation/maintenance rather than reducing addictive behaviour or media. My teacher says she thinks it will be treatments for schizophrenia.

I agree with the above for relationships but also could be parental investment and for aggression i agree with the above again. Those are my predictions anyway, but anything could come up really.

Hi, for psya4 i'm doing schizophrenia & media. Based on the fact that this is a new spec and its highly unlikely that they'd repeat a question (but they might) i'd place emphasis on antisocial and prosocial behaviour, video games and intense fandom for media, off course you should revise everything else as well, since they've made media applied and broken it down into sections  hard to be sure :/. Hope that helps.

That wasn't so bad, but I almost cried at the first Biorhythms question, had to remind myself it was only four marks.

Ria, your predictions were really good!

I have a very weird funny feeling that something on theory of planned behaviour could come up in addiction which i don't want to come up but i just think for some reason it might.
