    The markscheme for long answer questions are pretty broad and vague. Its all about the structure and whether you have sustained an argument ect. I had this issue too - work on exam technique. Especially in those 'apply' questions when they give you scenarios. You really have to get into the psyche of the examiner. Good luck

    I'm in year 12 and we've almost finished PSYA2. I prefer PSYA2 to PSYA1, its more interesting and relatable to real life

    Oh sorry I'm doing AQA! I'm not sure what topics edexcel covers. Your bound to find an edexcel buddy around here somewhere! Good luck, I'm sure you'll smash it
