    Hi Cara,

    I had a panic attack after the exam and realised that there was a question that said:
    “Outline and evaluate one social psychological theory for aggression”

    I realised after the exam that i wrote about institutional aggression which isn’t a theory!

    However after looking at the examiners report for june 2012 when a similar question was asked this is what they said:

    “Some weaker responses appeared to be pre-prepared answers on institutional aggression, which earned marks when factors were explicitly presented as social psychological. ”

    What would i of had to have written to gain at least some marks on this question, bearing in mind it was 21 marks?

    Thank you

      I’m sorry to hear of your exam problem. I think one explanation of institutional aggression may have been fine (because it is a social explanation of aggression) and then all the evaluation would be creditworthy. You’ll just have to put it out of your head til the results come through.
