    The examiners report actually mentions the excessive amount of lines for the smaller questions and how this has effected marks. It states that simply because there are more lines, there is no greater expectation of the amount of content needed to fulfil the criteria for the full marks. However, if a student is to write unrelated content for the sake of feeling they need to fill the lines, naturally, marks would have been deducted. Definitely threw a few people off at my centre as the immediate response is to question 'Why on earth have they given me so many lines for a two marker?!', quite unfair / deceptive actually.

    Yeah I was only joking, during the exam I knew it was extra space anyways. Like I got an A (thank God) but it wasn't a crazy A like 95ums LOOL. But yeah sorry, I was only joking in that post

    It might go up two-three ums

    That's the old specification and outdated now, you need either the complete companion 4th edition (for the new spec) or Google Loopa Psychology - that will help.

    For 12 mark questions, I break it down into the method and then the findings. Afterwards, I learn the evaluation, I find that by doing this, I am rehearsing the information repeatedly. I do this before I do any practice questions. I then sit a do a paper, I always plan my answer out with what I know, write my essay and then see if I missed anything out. I then figure out what it is I need to memorise more.
    Char I take on a similar method now, I cam on here yesterday and it got me thinking alot about the way i revise I tried taking a short cut buying essays but that hasn't helped. I now look at examination qs, then revise what i think should go into the answer and then i close my book and have a go at the questions. I spoke to my teacher this morning and she said she would be happy to mark this for me. She was shared with the class these revision courses happening in Windsor. I am not sure if I am going yet, but they are apparently run by aqa a examiners and she knows one of the teachers and says it would be worthwhile if we could make it. I think I might go but I know that a whole revision day may not be enough for me, so i am working hard everyday and have drawn up a revision timetable for 6 days a week. I have Saturdays off, alos because I work part time, so really need to rest when i get in at night.

    So far in psychology my worst topic is memory but my most enjoyable is psychopathology...what about you guys?

    Agreed. A2 students have an answer book for their essays, why can't AS STUDENTS have one too!
