    HEY GUYS! It's been a a bit more than a month now of me studying psychology at A levels ...it's been interesting and I've realisedthere's a lot of information to remember. I'm hoping for some advice, tips and motivation to do with this subject as I do want to study in university and I'm aiming to come out with a* at the end of my two years in sixth form so any help will be appreciated!

    Thank you .

    Know all the studies inside out and make essay plans on all of them. So one double spread in your book is one potential essay.

    Hi, 2nd year Psychology student here being predicted an A*, just sent off my UCAS application to study Psychology at uni.

    My main tips are have a set of organised notes that you can refer to, ensure you can evaluate studies correctly (that's where the most marks are) and also just do plenty of past paper questions. I have been using the Cardwell and Flanagan textbook which has managed to get me 100% in almost all my exams and in class tests (you can track my progress here). If you keep on top of notes and read through them before each class your life will become so much easier
