AQA A A2 Psychology Psya4 Depression Predictions June 2014
We move on to the AQA A A2 Psya4 Depression topic predictions and possible questions for this June 2014 unit 4 exam. However before we do that I just wanted to congratulate all my followers/readers on a good exam. Quite a few people came out feeling confident after Psya3 and they weren’t shy in letting me know! Shortly after the Psya3 exam from 2:45pm to 11pm my phone would not stop buzzing with tweets, emails and facebook messages.
I had all of you guys telling me how my predictions had proved right so there were some pretty happy students. The ones that had the initiative to plan prior, analyse and use my books appeared to be the most happiest after the exam as they had prepared well and covered all their bases. I’m keen to see how well you guys do on results day too so do let me know – I’m confident I will get a few of you on 100% for one or both of the exams, mark my words.
Lets hope my Psya4 predictions work out too hey?
Lets take a look at the Psya4 depression topic firstly to break down the possible questions.
For the Psya4 Depression predictions for June 2014 we follow the same pattern as my Psya4 Schizophrenia predictions. This question can only be asked based on the exact same pattern of questions above. Lets break this down and see which questions have come up for Depression over the years using my predictions table as usual:
My AQA A Psya4 Depression Predictions For June 2014
- Psychological therapies for depression – This hasn’t been asked since January 2011. My Frontrunner based on the stats but AQA dont always make it that obvious.
- Biological therapies for depression – Last asked in June 2011 – Also just as likely as psychological therapies in my book.
- Psychological explanations for depression – Last asked in January 2012 and also very possible. They asked biological explanations for depression twice within 3 exams so its still very possible to come up.
Something to watch out for in the Psya4 Depression Questions:
Its quite possible they ask questions as a plural meaning they will phrase the exam question in such a way that it asks for TWO explanations or TWO therapies – but this wont always be clear. If the question asks for “explanationS” <– Notice the S at the end!
What this means, anytime a question asks for “explanationS” is they want you to write about two (plural means more than 1). So be very careful about that and make sure you read the questions carefully. If the question asks for one or more you can choose.
So those are my AQA Psychology Psya4 Depression Predictions For June 2014 – What do you guys think?
