there's likely to be a question on social change (possibly 12 marks) as this is usually poorly answered

Ive got a hunch the treatments might come up- particularly biological treatments for abnormality, and psychological treatments of stress. If its social probably social change :/

Its actually pretty obvious what will come up if you take alot of past papers. Go on to AQA website and download some past papers and you'll see an emerging theme. The most obvious is that you need to know the full in depth studies.

in stress it'll be: Keicolt-Glaser, Friedman & Rosenman, Hans Selye, Holmes & Rahe, Hassles, SAM & HPA, CBT, SIT, Hardiness, Drugs. http://getrevising.co.uk/resources/aqa_psychology_unit_2_stress#s=1

in Social: Sherif, Asch, Zimbardo, Milgram, Hogg & Vaughn, Tajfel, Moscovici. and plus the definitions.

I havnt revised Abnormality yet so i cant help you with that LOL.

Over the past 3 years there's been the biological and psychodynamic approaches as 12 markers.
SAM and HPA have ever been on as essays, and neither have treatments for any approach

ok, i was thinking life changes and daily hassles as a big marker (well thats what i hope will come up)

But i have a funny feeling it will be an essay in social influence because there has only been one or two in all the past papers

But people were telling me that social change came up in the janurary paper as a 4 marker
and the time before that it was jan 2011 as a 6 marker
before that jun 2010 as a 4 marker
jan 2010 as a 6 marker

i wouldn't mind if milgram and ethnical issues came up

i also think psychoanylsis might come up as well as drugs in abnormality

Personally I'd like it to be an abmormality 12 marker such as behavioural approach but going by the trend I think it will be social influence, most likely on Independent behaviour.
