Psychopathology exam question revision booklet AQA psychology new spec 2016

Psychopathology exam question revision booklet AQA psychology new spec 2016

This is a collection of exam questions on the AQA new spec psychology topic PSYCHOPATHOLOGY. Since it is a new specification there are next to no questions currently available for students to practice with (one specimen paper on the website) therefore I have gone through past papers for the old specification and carefully selected the relevant questions for the new spec. They have been usefully grouped so that once you have revised the topic of PSYCHOPATHOLOGY you can test yourself (I also have the question packs for attachment/ social/ cognitive). Once you've answered a question you can mark your work/ ask your teacher to using mark schemes from the AQA website or your notes. Hope you find them as useful as I did :)

Issues and Debates revision booklet AQA Psychology new specification 2016

Issues and Debates revision booklet AQA Psychology new specification 2016

This is a revision booklet I have made for the new spec psychology paper on the topic of ISSUES AND DEBATES. It has been presented in a concise and memorable way and can be used as it is (printed out as a booklet or downloaded on iBooks on your phone) or converted into your own flashcards or mindmap. Personally I printed it as a booklet and then added little pictures to sum up different points/ theories/ evaluation ideas to make them memorable. Perfect for students aiming for an A/A* due to its depth and breadth but also beneficial for all psychology students as it covers all areas of the specification (everything you could be asked) in an accessible way. It covers every topic in this area of the spec: • Gender and culture in psychology – universality and bias. Gender bias including androcentrism and alpha and beta bias; cultural bias, including ethnocentrism and cultural relativism. • Free will and determinism: hard determinism and soft determinism; biological, environmental and psychic determinism.
