People doing the new syllabus don't know what there missing out on. You don't get to study the hilarity which is Freud and his dream analysis and psychosexual stages.

Yes, my year did pretty badly too, I managed to get a B this time round though which I am very thankful for
All I can say is, make revision resources as you go along - cue cards, mind maps, etc. You'll find this very useful when it comes to revision. Also, exam technique is very important - in another one of my subjects I lost marks because I didn't put certain things in. If you don't know how to answer the question, remembering all the material won't help. This was the reason most of my year didn't do as well as expected. Do mock exams and definitely ask your teacher if you don't know how to answer a question. For another one of my subjects I made cue cards, mind maps, keyword lists and planned out all of the exam questions. I ended up with an A in that.
But to be perfectly honest, I knew fairly early in the year that I was miserable at college, hated my subjects and wasn't getting the right support (I have Aspergers). That led to me doing no revision and low attendance. The second time around, the complete fear of failure made me do everything I hadn't in the previous year. If you're trying, you'll be rewarded.
Hope that helped... Best of luck!
I'll take everything on board , thanks again

Dream analysis is reasonably interesting though

I believe that there could be different subjects that could increase your chances of being accepted into uni studying medicine if you are in competition with other people (further maths, physics) but of course psychology still links in as well as showing a related interests! but dont forget its depends on the uni and the results that you get, so go with the subjects you feel you can achieve your best in and enjoy at the same time!
