I have seen most of you individually for essay writing workshops. The document below is a guide to how you should approach revision for essay questions. If you have any queries come and see me, but as you will see, practice is the key! Don’t forget I will mark anything you need feedback on.
Keep up the great efforts you have shown all year!
Year 13 Essay strategy
I hope you enjoyed Easter and are recovering from the chocolate!
Here are practice questions for all 5 approaches – you may have some already from an earlier post. Make sure you practise as much as you can and AGAINST THE CLOCK! Don’t forget you need to keep up your glossary work too.
cognitive approach practice exam questions
Psychodynamic approach practice exam questions
Behaviourist approach practice exam questions
Biological approach practice exam questions
positive approach practice exam questions
Don’t forget – I’m happy to mark anything you need feedback on.
See you soon!

In order for us to get back in sync with the assessment schedule we need to do two tasks this week.
A reminder that you should be preparing a draft response to the following 2 questions
1. ‘Apply your knowledge of the cognitive approach to explain romantic relationships (10 marks)’.
2. Describe the “influences of childhood experiences” and one other assumption of the psychodynamic approach
Bring your draft of each piece with you to attach to the actual essay when you hand it in. The essay will be done in class under timed conditions.
12A Mr Haggerty this is scheduled for Wednesday 16th March.
12B Dr Bayley this is scheduled for Thursday 17th March.
To make marking easier, can you do each question on a separate sheet of paper.
Thanks a lot
Please read pages 32 and 33 and make a page of Cornell Style notes to bring to the lesson with you. Print off the following resources.
