G543
HEALTH & CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY
FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGY
Your examination is on Thursday 19th January 2012.
You have 2 hours to answer 4 two part questions (a) and (b), 2 on
Health and Clinical and 2 on Forensic. This is an options paper so choose
carefully.
On both options there will be a choice of 4 questions, however you
might not necessarily be able to answer them all, as we only do three
out of the four topics in each option (Health: Healthy Living, Stress &
Disorders & Treatments of Phobias (Anxiety Disorders), Forensic:
Turning to Crime, Making a Case and After a Guilty Verdict)
The timing is tight and works out to about 30 minutes a question. As
part a) is worth 10 marks and part b) 15 marks, I would suggest about
13 minutes for part a) and 17 minutes for part b).
Remember part a) is description (use the studies to illustrate the points
you are making, don't simply regurgitate them) and part b) evaluation,
so don't waste time in section b) describing things. You need to write
concisely, practice under strict timed conditions. Read the question
carefully and ensure you actually answer it!

Good Luck
