PSYCHOLOGY: INTRODUCING PSYCHOLOGY (10.01.13)
THIS IS THE GUIDE FOR YOUR EXAM.
PREPARATION
For flight of flight, always emphasise the physiological changes.
With an alternative hypothesis, the dependent variable needs to be something that can be
measured and for the independent variable you need to explicitly show the two conditions.
However, if it is a correlation study then you need to say it is a `significant relationship' rather than
a `significant difference'.
For androgyny, you need people to rate their traits and to compare.
In order to sample, you need to select a group that represents the target audience.
The nature/nurture debate in psychology could come up in a 10 mark question and the studies
you should use is Diamond and Sigmundson (nature)/Mead (nurture).
BEFORE THE EXAM
1. Don't panic; remember that panicking might make you lose silly mark because you won't read the
question properly. Read the question more than once if you are panicking. Good luck.
THE ACTUAL EXAM
If it says use an example, then you guessed it, use an example.
If it says justify your answer, use statistics otherwise you won't get the mark .
Connectives create an argument and comparisons which make it easier to get an A grade.
