Struggling for time with writing essays

    Hi guys,

    I'm re-sitting both PSYA3 and PSYA4 this year so I'm trying to teach myself everything again however I'm really struggling to fit all the essays in the time given.

    Can anyone give me a brief description of how each essay should look. How many AO2/3 points should be included roughly? How many words?

    Anyone else struggling with timing and have worked out a way to help?

    Thank you!

    Have a look at my teachers corner thread.

    If it's a 12 mark question and wants 2 theories/studies you need to break down the marks accordingly.

    6 marks each theory/study
    3 marks for AO1 3 marks for AO3.
    repeat with the 2nd theory/study (6 marks)

    Leave out the introduction, don't rewrite the question. Just get stuck in.

    Have a look at the mark schemes on here. (http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/psych...d-mark-schemes)
    They will tell you how to get the higher level boundaries and what they're expecting you to write.
