    Hey guys, I'm new to student room so hi xD

    I'm currently studying 3 A levels
    - Sociology
    - Psychology
    - English Language & Literature

    I really need some help on unit 3 of psychology aqa spec A (topics in psychology)
    For AS, i achieved a B grade (2 marks off an A)

    I didn't revise for the january exam for unit 3 therefore, i got an E grade (I was too busy revising for retake exams)
    anyway, my unit result for 'topics in psychology' was 47/100! . This really confused me because as I left the exam, I had roughly counted how many marks I would get (counting A01 & A02) and it should've been around 35/60 because the exam was out of 60 but the UMS was out of 100
    does that mean I didnt achieve 35/60? I'm really confused. I hope I haven't confused you guys too =/

    This unit is tough!!

    Remember to always do issues/debates/approaches and methodology and ethics otherwise you can only get 4 marks for a02
