Is it just me or did anyone else find MC questions bit more difficult than usual?

Usually, I can finish MC in 10 -15 min but today it nearly took me 30 mins.

How did u guys go with the 10 marker? I personally found the theory side of it alright, but linking back to the scenario was sorta difficult for me.

MC was 100% harder than previous years, they took my 15 mins longer than it usually does. I dropped 7 marks in multiís this year , but to be fair everyone wouldíve found it hard so itís okay

Is informed consent required for both the 16 yr old participant and their parent or just the parent??

I did both, because surely they still need to consent as well, even if they are u18

Why tf was video monitoring better than and emg for the 8 yr old sleepwalker. Also why was observational study better than experiment for astronauts

I mean like, EMG records the electrical activities of the muscles, whereas video monitoring records external physiological movements, and because the mother 'suspected' her son was sleepwalking than video monitoring would be a more practical approach.

also
I wrote about how when you use an EMG you have to place 'pads' on a person, this could prevent Jack from actually walking. And I also talked about artificiality, and how video monitoring limits reduces an artificial enviroment.

idk if that's correct.

i always thought that you get informed consent from the parent/guardian but you explain the procedures to the 16 year old.

Wow that's a really good interpretation. I said how it will allow the dr to observe the sleepwalking actual happen in a natural environment.

This I had to think really hard because it wasn't something I knew well. I just wrote how it will allow the experimenters to observe and record natural astronaut behaviour. (: the whole exam was difficult lol

Yeah the actual signing would be from parent/guardian but youíd still have to explain the nature risk and rights to the adolescent and the parent/Guardia

I said that since he was sleep walking, a EMG would resemble electrical muscle movement similar to normal waking consciousness. Therefore, to distinguish, video monitoring in which you can see the behaviour for what it is would be better.

For the observational study, it is better than an experiment because you need to observe natural behaviour. Also, you cannot replicate space in a contrived environment.

Video monitoring will actually confirm that the sleepwalker was in fact sleep walking via visual recordings. Whereas, the EMG may be unclear as it may display high electrical activity that could indicate that the individual could be sleep walking; however, they may have instead just awoken and so voluntary got up and went to the fridge e.g. which would display high electrical activity.

Does anyone remember what they wrote for the classical conditioning/operant conditioning question on the dogs?
