Hi all,
Thought I'd start a thread for the AQA A Psychology PSYA3/PSYA4 exams that some of you will be taking next year. I studied this last year so if anyone would like any help for revision, feel free to ask.

Hey, My college is doing PSYA4 first, we're doing phobias and addiction, we just finished phobias last week so i'm starting to go over it all, seems straight forward, was just wondering how hard the research methods part is and addiction

Hey, although I never studied phobias, I did study addiction which in my opinion was the most difficult topic because there were so much to learn! But I'm sure you'll be fine. I thought research methods was going to be really hard because it seemed to include a lot of maths which is my worst subject, but it was surprisingly fine since a lot of it is really simple stuff. I was a bit unprepared for some parts of the research methods (and they came up in the exam!) like the main features of a science, how to write a research report etc but I still did alright. When are you doing the exam, January or June?

PSYA4 in jan and PSYA3 in June, for some reason my college does it that way around. I'm also bobbing myself about reserach methods as i wasn't that strong in it last year

I do. I have essays on all aggression topics, however they are a bit long and could do with some condensing! If you want them I can e-mail them to you, just PM me your address.

Hi,
if you're doing aggression for psya3 then i recommend you downloading this book on ipad: https://itunes.apple.com/GB/book/aqa...547172151?ls=1
it's uploaded by mephestic (Saj) who got 100% in both unit 3 and unit4!
or get this book: http://www.collinseducation.com/Titl...225&frm=srchpg for only £1!!!!!
it gives you ao1, a02 and ida's too.

for notes on schizophrenia download this document, it is fantastic! http://getrevising.co.uk/resources/s...revision_guide
for notes on media: http://www.psychexchange.co.uk/resource/4217/
for notes on research methods: http://vtle.pchs.northumberland.sch....rch%20Methods/

and you should get the exam companion book:http://www.amazon.co.uk/Complete-Com...1613050&sr=1-1 for model answers or ask your teacher i'm sure she'll have lots of essays!

i hope i've helped, what other topics are you doing for psya3?
the notes are amazing! thank-you so much! and i'm not sure what topics we're covering for psya3 yet i'm sure Il let you all know after January LOL

but seriously this is sooooo helpful have you already sat this exam?

Thank u these are very helpful another site that is quite useful is brainfreeze for summaries... I'm doing aggression relationships and eating behaviour in psya3 and schizophrenia/depression I think with addiction for psya4 I'm really struggling with the essay writing skills and what the examiners accept as ao2...

Hey, do you know if i copy the same exact model essay for the exam, if we get a question on it. Would they not mark my answer? and is this considered as cheating?
