    I'm at a loss for the new spec in AS.
    My teacher hasnt been helpful at all - can anyone explain the layout of the exam for AS and provide a few tips to ace it?

    Doing the topics:
    Families & Methods
    Education & Methods in context

    Are you doing the exam on Tuesday? For Education and Methods in context? Are you with AQA?

    Hey, for the layout of the exam look at the specimen paper it really helps, For the methods in context refer to P.E.R.V.E.R.T. If your thinking of points to write about and L.A.C.E. It really helps with planning your paragraphs. S.E.R.C (state, explain, reference and conclude) with each point to make sure you go into depth on it.
