    Hey guys, 1st post.

    I had a psychology A-level exam today (PYA4), where you have to answer 3 questions of a possible 15.

    I answered the first 2 perfectly but for the third question, I finished and realised i misread the question and answered something completely different.

    :rolleyes:

    Question is, maximum mark for each question is 24, do you think its possible I'll still be awarded marks for what I wrote (it was very detailed, althought it was the wrong question).

    No. If it's not relevant to the question asked, it's wrong, no matter how detailed it may be.

    Lol, not really. It was the old syllabus and so the last resit.

    My friend did that exam today, I think. He answered 2/3 questions, and he completely left out the 3rd one :emo::lolwut:

    Depends on how different the question actually was. If it was of a similar topic, you'll probably pick up a few marks here and there.

    Well they asked for research into anti-social behaviour. I wrote about pro-social behaviour.

    Um yeah I'd expect a zero for that then.

    Hate it when that happens, last year for AS I wrote about psychological somethings, when I later found out it was asking for physiological things. Luckily it doesn't count as much as that was only like 10% of the overall marks for the paper.
