    I really hope so :l How was A2 Psychology? (I'm guessing you're in A2 from "2 marks off last year") I hear a lot of people do much better in A2 than AS

    Yeah I am! The good thing about a2 psychology is you can use as studies in a lot of the questions on the synoptic paper which is not the options paper! Although the options paper is v hard there's like 50 studies so revise straight away haha! Good luck and let me know how you do!

    I just want to do an 'easy' A Level.. Something that with no doubt I will definitely I can get an A in..
    as long as you do any A level paper by any of the exam board except Cambridge International Exams, you're safe. the rest are relatively easy. CIE are the hardest set of exams around.

      I think I'm just going to do Bio, Chem, Psychology and Sociology. I've spoken to medical students and they've said that these A Levels are fine for medicine..

        Probably general studies. Just don't expect to get into Uni with that.

        I have just finished my a levels, and I must say that psychology, unless you really commit it is very hard as the work load is horrific! English language is actually a really nice subject to do if you have the AQA board! You have a lot of choice in what you do I thought I'd hate it but I didn't mind it at all

        Psychology revision was the death of me, there was just too many case studies to follow for each topic :/

        I don't think there is anything wrong with it, I love it! I'm going to be doing it at uni! It's just a lot of hard work, you either love it or hate it really!

        Basically you learn all the research methods and the basics so just like definitions and learn how to create your own studies then for the second exam you learn different studies that fit within certain topics like developmental or social psychology etc! Then a2 is sort of the same but with more in depth topics of criminal psychology and health but there is lot more studies! But it is a lot of remembering but I loved it! Hope this helps

        It's mainly just introductory work to be honest, and they usually go through what you'll be learning in the first week so you'll know if you want to stay by then! Seriously don't worry
