hi! could anyone please tell me what the topics are in the unit 2 psychology exam, so i know what things to revise for my exam on Friday.
Thank you **
I'm assuming you're sitting the same as me, so as I know it:
Social Psychology- Obedience to Authority, Conformity etc.
Individual Differences - Abnormality - Psychodynamic, Behavioural, Cognitive and Biological Approaches. As well as treatment.
Biological Psychology - Stress, the immune system and the Sympathetic Nervous System.
Best of Luck!
for AQA A IT IS stress, individual differences and abnormality
but for AQA B IT IS social influence; memory OR perceptual processes & autism OR anxiety disorders
:-> hope it helps :)
It depends whether you're doing the A or B specification, and what exam board, can't you ask your teacher?
I did individual differences - abnormality, and social psychology :)
But abnormality is a big subject includes definitions, biological explanation, cognitive, psycho dynamic.. I think that's it! :) x
Oh and the behavioural approach!
It depends on your exam board.
For OCR is it exam B542?
If so then here are the topics:
Biological Psychology - Criminal Behaviour [CT= Biological Theroy, AT= Social Learning Theory, CS= Mednick et al (1984)]
Cognitive Psychology - Perception [CT= Constructivist Theory of Perception, AT= Nativist Theory, CS= Haber and Levin (2001)]
Developmental Psychology - Cognitive Development [CT= Piaget's Theory, AT= Vygotsky, CS= Piaget and Conservation of Number (1952)]
Social Psychology - Non-Verbal Communication [CT= Social Learning Theory, AT= Evolution Theory, CS= Yuki et al. (2007)
Individual Differences - The Self [CT= Humanistic Theory of Self, AT= Trait Theory, CS= Van Houtte and Jarvis (1995)
CT= Core Theory
AT= Alternative Theory
CS= Core Study
thank you for your feedback. Good luck to others doing their exam too. ** :)
