    Hey everyone,
    Was just talking with some friends, and they say that they're doing some AQA-B old spec past papers to prepare for their upcoming exams. The problem is is that I've heard around that the mark scheme is too different, but yet they insist that the papers are ok to do. Would really like to hear somebody else's input here.
    Cheers in advance

    The questions would be okay to practice with, but the mark scheme would be slightly off and not directly comparable mark wise.

    Bare in mind that AQA A/B and old spec in general have different learning content. So you answer may be right, but the mark scheme says it's wrong/ignores it.

    Ok, thanks for the reply. Just really stuck right now with psychology in terms of what I should be doing to practice right now. I've asked my teachers what I should be doing, but they didn't really give me any direction. What would recommend doing? I'm going so stressed right now over it
