    Anyone else do psychology A (aqa)?
    I felt PYSA3 went quite well, but I need an 'a' in that exam.... Not sure it will be an A if everyone else found it nice?
    I got 60/100 on PSYA3, it was awful! That was back in January though. I hated PSYA4 as well but I hope I didn't do as tragically awful. I need 22 for a C, 57 for a B and 97 for an A :/ I know it won't happen but I can't help but hope I got 97+ Wishful, deluded thinking..

    Not really no, we focused on unit 3 until 2 weeks before buss4 when we started it, hence why most of us failed. I need an A overall too, I did 'poorly' on unit 1 first time cos I got 1 marks into the A, so I'm hoping to pick up marks there! #prayforme

    THIS. I'm currently at Bargaining. Personally, I'm praying to Superman as the last time I did that, I got a nice Additional Mathematics paper.
    I'm going through a really fast cycle each day that repeats itself in the space of about 30 minutes. :laugh:

    Well i resat unit 3 aswell so it depends how i have done it both exams. Hoping for atleast a B. What about you?
    how did unit 3 go? I need a high A in this exam, nearly an a* to get an a overall

    but if ive improved on resits of buss1+2 then I could probably get a B in buss4 and still be okay

    I'm in a similar situation, did PSYA4 in Jan and got 72/100 so in unit 3 I need 5ums for a C, 27 for a B or 91 for an A. I think I'll get the B but there's very little chance of 91 in Unit 3

    I did this paper I felt it was okay, some people I know found it difficult though. I need a B to get an A, so fingers crossed for the both of us

    Unit 3 is a bit of a pain in the butt.. Which topics did you do for it? Our college did perception, eating behaviour and relationships. Perception was the most horrendously dull thing ever! We did schizophrenia and addiction for unit 4 and I got the SZ question I wanted so I'm just praying :/ haha

    Does anyone know if when the grade boundaries come out on Wednesday you can also access examiners reports and mark schemes?
    I know that for Edexcel, examiner reports are released securely on August 20, so again, we'll need someone with a username and password to upload them! Edexcel mark schemes are already available, not sure about other exam boards, sorry!

    That is annoying surely they cannot see people cheating as people have already done the blasted exams.

    I tend to have small intense moments of worry where it just builds up and then I just go do something and then I forget. And then I log on TSR again and then panic.


    Aaah, may Cthulhu devour me if I fail.

    Oh really? I think i got 60/100 for PSYA4 in jan! I really hate psychology

    I retook PSYA4 as would need an A in PSYA3 to get a B overall, but PSYA3 was before the PSYA4 exam and as i thought PSYA3 went well... revision was limited for PSYA4 :/ regretting it now :/

    Hopeful thinking for the both of us!

    I'm not too sure it will really, just find stuff to occupy your time and you'll be fine
    Yeah, that's the plan. I've arranged to spend the majority of the day doing archery, so I'm looking forward to it in a way, haha

    Unit 3 I did relationships, aggression and gender which were all quite dull. For unit 4 we did phobias and addiction which I felt were a lot more interesting. Unit 3 just seem like a memory game to regurgitate a structured answer
