    Hi, I'm an A2 student and I do AQA psychology

    I have my PSYA3 exam on Wednesday and I was wandering if they would ever repeat exam questions.
    For example last years PSYA3 Agression question on the June 2015 paper was "Discuss research into institutional aggression" - I was thinking that they wouldn't repeat the same question 2 years in a row so is there any point in revising institutional aggression?


    I don't think they do actually. They may ask something where you could still talk about institutional aggression but the question would not be the same. Don't take my word for it though!

    Im not sure 100% so dont point the gun at me if im wrong! but because a lot of students will be retaking the 2015 exam and the 2015 exam is also used as mocks. Im pretty sure they wont use the exact same question. Throughout previous years there has never been a repeat in exam questions so i don't see why they would do it. Anyway , I wouldn't say don't revise institutional aggression because you never know! However i am avoiding topics that came up last year.... for example:

    Eating - Social Psychological explanations of Anorexia (but revise biological!!) and Dieting success and failure.
    Aggression- Institutional aggression
    Sleep- Evolutionary explanations of sleep and narcolepsy

    Good Luck
