    Heyy, Im taking Psychology too!
    Ive already started revision but i think just completing past papers and contextualising your answers should help.

    You got full marks in PY1? Congrats xD How did you do your revision for that exam?

    For me I just memorise model answers and re-do them over and over and time myself too, I feel that works best for me

    I'm starting my revision on the 1st of April, and plan to learn an answer a day and then I'll test myself the next day on it before starting the next answer, also as they're model answers by my lecturer I will change them to suit me or if I feel they need more

    How are you currently doing your revision for PY2?

    Hi ! Congrats on full marks in PY1!
    I resat my PY2 in January and got 117/120 so pretty happy.
    I firstly started writing out ALL the model answers, but quickly switched to typing.
    I then basically kept looking over them intermittently and crammed them in my head the weekend beforehand.
    Get the names, order and numbers right and it'll be fine!
    I also went over to getrevising.co.uk, found a lovely set of notes there by Zoey Jowett. I would recommend them. They may not fit exactly into your notes but the extra alternative research really helped me out.

    Thankyou very much!
    I memorised all the model answers & as well as doing past papers, I made my own past papers for each approach (cognitive, biological etc.) to make sure I had learnt all the essays, I then gave these to my lecturer for marking, to make sure I was correct. She then told me where to improve and then I added these improvements to my memorised model answers.
    I am learning approximately 12 essays this easter but I have a 2 week gap before my PY2 exam so I will revise each study properly then - again by the same method as above.
    Hope that helps! and Good luck!

    I'm pretty much doing the same as you, I find it much easier just memorising everything! I'm trying to learn as much as I can this easter so that I have time before the exam if I need it - Like time to go over research methods and re-test myself on the questions to check I still know them off by heart. But this half term I've been very distracted so it's good I started early! haha

    Also I was wondering how long, on average, does it take you to memorise a model answer?

    Wow! Hehe, you do it pretty quick xD It ranges really depending on the length of the essay, really long ones can take me 8 hours, but regular length ones take me about 3 hours

    I was just wondering, do any of you want to compare model answers? My lecturer said that all of the ones she's given us are top mark answers, so I was just wondering if I could compare with anyone else to check that these are actually top mark answers?

    Could you send me your top mark PY2 ones please? I'd be very grateful, also look at the mark schemes and then compare it with the essay, if it covers everything then it's probably full marks.

    Hi Guys,

    I'm currently revising for py2 and I'm having serious trouble with the structure of the essays and how much content to include. My teacher hasn't provided me with any model answers ( :mad: ) but I have all the info in note form. Is there any chance anyone would be willing to share their model answers with me just so I can get the jist of the exam structure?
    Thanks so much if anyone could help
    You'd be a life saver!
