AQA A2 Psychology Psya4 Media Psychology June 2014 Predictions
So we had the first Psya1 exam recently and the general feeling appears to be it was a good paper. The 12 marker was based on Eye Witness Testimony which was one of my predictions for an 8 marker so its a small victory. Some of my other predictions also came up im told in various forms so thats great to hear my predictions were helpful.
It just goes to show you never know what AQA may do and how they may design the questions so its always important to learn everything just to be safe.
Moving on to my next set of predictions we look at the Psya4 A2 Media Psychology topic and the possible questions that are overdue here.

Right – on to my predictions;
Mr Predictions for Psya4 A2 Media Psychology June 2014 Possible Questions:
Look at the table below to see the list of all the possible questions and when each came up:
Based on this we can see when each question came up – the two questions highlighted in blue means it was a broad question that covered both those topics (research into intense fandom in June 2013). Looking at this theres an obvious list of candidates questions that have not come up since January 2012 and could make a possible appearance.
- Media Influences on antisocial behaviour
- The Negative effects of video games
- The elaboration likelihood Model (since June 2012)
- Psychological explanations for the attraction of celebrity
- Evolutionary explanations for the attraction of celebrity
These 5 are my running predictions for Psya4 Media Psychology. The questions highlighted in BOLD are my front-runners however. I can’t stress the importance of learning everything in this topic – If you look in the table above in the psya4 media psychology predictions table you will see “Media Influences into Pro-social behaviour” came up twice consecutively as a 10 mark question in June 2012 AND January 2013.
So AQA have no issue in asking questions back to back so my advice is if you really want to guarantee yourself a good mark – make sure you have a good handle on the entire Media Psychology topic rather than rely solely on these predictions.
