    lol same. its probs worth ignoring the questions that are very unlikely to come up, such as the ones that came up last year. that gets us down to like 15 questions if were being ruthless?

    I feel like i'm going to fail this exam and not get into uni :-( Please give me motivation.
    As long as you're not absolutely thick and decent at writing essays with a clear line of argument then you're good. The grade boundaries are usually pretty low for unit 3 so there's no need to worry.

    Make sure your research methods knowledge is sound, too.

    If they did what they did with last year's AS unit 1 exam, they'll put the easier questions in there (that's what we got for memory, anyway).

    Good luck and you'll be fine You'll be surprised at how much you'll remember in the exam.

    Yeah, just gonna have to be tactical about it :') Our teacher warned us not to completely ignore last year's questions though in case they come up as the smaller questions.

    What topics are you doing?

    I'm literally trying to write out each possible essay and memorise them, so far I've done all for relationships, 3 eating behaviour essays and none for sleep. Will I write them in time? Probably. Will I memorise them in time? Probably not.

    I had my history AS resit last week. Managed to write and memorise 16 essays in 3 days but I don't think this will be the case with psychology. I'm literally planning my gap year, I can't see myself getting a good grade.

    I know those feels

    How did you cope with history and psychology?! Respect to you, my friend.

    I'm doing the same, I've pretty much written all the possible 24 markers but I haven't started memorising them, I'm just hoping through writing them I'm absorbing most of the content.

    Sleep is such a killer! So much to learn :-(

    I believe sleep was a 4 on one exp. of narcolepsy and a 4+16 on evolutionary explanations for functions.

    Eating behaviour was a 4+16 on one or more psychological explanations for either anorexia nervosa or bulimianervosa or obesity and a 4 on one or more explanations for the success and/or failure of dieting.

    For relationships it was a 24 on the influence of childhood on adult relationships.

    I'm the same as you but schizophrenia instead of depression.
    What are your predictions? I think it's so difficult to predict them and everyone is saying different things :-(

    Well, I pretty much failed history last year (I kind of gave up with it because half way through the year our teacher left and our new teacher didn't teach us any new content, I have accepted my failure and only revised for psychology)
    So I had to self teach it to myself this year, making me fall behind with psychology.

    Not a great plan

    I usually memorise them by writing them out once again, then making a plan, then writing down all of the key words. I will probably do that monday+tuesday.

    I absolutely hate sleep, it's not in the same style as the other topics, it's not really about different types of explanations such as biological, cognitive etc so you can't 're-use' content knowledge.

    Thank you. I'm dreading eating behaviours as we did bulimia and we didn't do a lot of work on it. I can;t find anything online as everywhere I look it's only about anorexia. Loopa has also used anorexia, I'm thinking of maybe just doing that? (since I can;t remember anything about bulimia anyway)

    Ah, fair enough! That sucks, I couldn't teach it to myself, my essay skills were such a mess at the start of the year :'

    That seems like a good strategy! I know some people that spend hours learning one essay but I've never found that to work.

    I agree, and we did it last as well so there hasn't been much time to get familiar with the content. So much research:nah:

    Yes, I've already done my exam though (back in April!)
    It was OCR Debates about the Holocaust, what are you doing?

    Right now my biggest issue is that I have psychology and media on the same day
    The media exam has 3 questions and we've only been prepared for 1, we didn't even know there will be ore than 1 question until like last month. I'm planning to just revise for psychology and somehow get lucky.
