    Hi everyone,
    Thought I'd start a thread for the AQA A Psychology PSYA3/PSYA4 exams. PSYA3 will be on Mon 10/06/2013 & PSYA4 will be on Mon 17/06/2013.

    I am taking both this June and I hope that we can all help one another with revision tips.

    For PSYA3 im doing the following: Biological Rhythms, Perception & Intelligence

    For PSYA4 im doing: Schizophrenia, Media & Research Methods

    Good Luck to everyone this summer!

    Aiming for an A*...what is really annoying is that to get an A* I need to get an A*, but to get an A I need a low E. :s A LEVEL LOGIC!

    Hey. I think Research Methods is not too bad. At first glance of a past paper it's like WOAH, but once you start to look more into it you find that it's not that bad at all. My school did Unit 4 first in Jan. I got a C in that but I am retaking it - trying to get an A in it!

    Hey. I think the topics for unit 4 are not too bad. I actually like RM the most believe it or not. I'm aiming for an A* overall. If not that then definetely a minimum of an A.

    Heheh, people aiming for A/A*s and I'll cry tears of happiness if I scrape a C/B.
    Man, I have not enjoyed psychology at all, got a C overall at AS, and got a D in Psya3 this Jan. It's weird, because I get A's in my other two subjects, but I just can't seem to get my head around psychology essays

    What are peoples opinions on the difficultly of PSYA3 in comparison to PSYA4. Which do you think is the more challenging paper. In unit 1 I got an A unit 2-B unit 4-B so now i need 51ums out of 100 on unit 3 to come out with a B. I'm just panicking about not having enough time for each essay

    Ah man, you don't know how much better that makes me feel to learn that I'm not the only one having difficulties with this course
    Part of the reason I was getting so depressed over my result was because literally everyone, even people I'd consider *ahem* below me academically, were getting A's and B's! D:

    Easier said than done, I'm finding there too much content and not enough time for this exam in comparison to the other 3 units.

    I am doing eating behaviour and aggression too. Panicking about eating behaviour in that I don't write enough. Have the holt and Lewis textbook and some notes out of a revision guide. Just covered attitudes to eating today and yesterday phew all done remembering it is so tough though. To keep it in my memory until June 10th. For psya4 I am doing addictive behaviour and depression plus research methods. Hoping there's less researchers names to learn there.

    Is it content you are worried about or just not writing enough in the time allowance? If you need some notes and some model essays for Eating I believe I can be of assistance

    I'm writing perfect essays and learning them because I know if needs be I can apply content of one essay to another if needs be. Currently writing the essays and during Easter I'm starting to learn them. You?
