the best thing to do is to revise in detail the questions that have not come up before and revise what has at the end.

what topics are you doing?

Aggression:
- genetics
- hormonal, neural
- evolutionary

Relationship:
- cultural
- sexual selection
- maintenance 
- Parental investment

Eating bahaviour:
- psychological exp. of eating disorder
- one or more factors that affect eating behavior 
- evolutionary

I'm pretty sure for the relationship topic, the question last june was sexual selection and human reproductive behaviour making it very unlikely it will come up again. I've been told for relationships the most likely to come up is maintenance. I also do sleep and cognitive devel. sleep is harder to judge as the previous questions tend to be split up into smaller ones. and application to education is the only one that hasn't come up for cog devel. However, ones from '10 and previous could still come up so its nowhere near definite, just what i've been told.

@gaffer dean ohh thank u sooo much! But the problem is that I don't quit understand the explanations of group display. I am writting the essay now and I hope that I will understand.. Especially the Xenophobia bit is confusing me :S. And I don't have any notes on the evolutionary explanation of food prefrences :S 

@holly stead well, to be hounest I have no idea.. I will ask my teacher tomorrow if she has a copy of the june 12 paper and will let you guys now which questions came up.. :)
