Old Spec

Although we are no longer doing the Old Spec the past papers can still be useful

Some questions you’ll not be able to answer since it’s something which isn’t taught in the New Spec such as:

‘Outline and Evaluate research into the effects of failure to form attachments’ 

-This would be focusing on Privation in attachment (not to be confused with Bowbly’s Maternal Deprivation) and research into case studies we haven’t looked at

However here’s a breakdown of the papers so you what topics it relates to in the New Spec

*REMEMBER WHEN DOING OLD PAST PAPERS MARK SCHEMES BUT USE DIFFERENT RESEARCH SO DON’T WORRY IF IT’S NOT ON MARK SCHEME YOU SHOULD KNOW IF IT’S RIGHT, IF NOT CHECK TEXTBOOK OR ASK ME*

Unit 1: Cognitive Psychology (Memory), Developmental Psychology (Attachment) and Research Methods

Unit 2: Biological Psychology (Stress), Social Psychology (Social Influence) and Individual Differences (Psychopathology)

Unit 3: Topics in Psychology – includes Relationships & Aggression but is a 24 mark question AO1 8 marks and AO3 16 marks – wouldn’t recommend using these

Unit 4: Psychopathology – includes Schizophrenia, Psychology in action (irrelevant to New Spec) and Research Methods

As always enjoy

And good luck
