Are there any past papers for this? I couldn't find them on the AQA website (only had Psy B). Also are there any good revision sites?

I'm seriously thinking of not going to the exam tomorrow. I have to revise the entire Module 1, and learn Modules 2 & 3 for PM tomorrow.

I'll be dropping it next year because it's absolutely useless; it doesn't matter if you don't understand anything - you just have to recall loads of facts.

I feel the same.

I'm dropping it next year as it's a horrible subject and as you say the exam is just an extreme memory test. I have a last minute revision book and the amount of information is still crazy. I don't find it interesting either.

Hey im doing this exam 2morrow - I feel the same. I think its unfair that we have to do modules 2 and 3 together on the same day. Would be better 2 do one module one day and the other on another day so we could revise properly. I dont know where u can get any past exam papers on the Inet my school had some that we could look at. Good luck!

Do you guys think it's worth my while worrying and trying to prepare for it?

My teacher said that if anyone get's a U then they will withdraw it, so you don't have to put it on your UCAS form.

And to the person complaining about having to do 2 & 3 tomorow - I ahve to retake Paper 1 aswell lol

But you're right - if they were on seperate days we could say, revise Attachments, then revise Memory etc etc but this way it's 'revise the entire course'.

I like psychology and I did this exam last year - but got a D so I'm retaking it again this year.

Stupid me left revision to the last minute and can't remember anything from last year. At least the information you learnt in class is still fresh - ish in your mind.

Has anyone already done this exam either yesterday or today? And if so could they tell us the questions!!

^ I think everyone has the exams at the same times. 1.30 onwards.

I have this tomorrow aswell, and in the exact same situation as you.

Our school has em at 14:00 cuz lunch runs from 1-2pm.

I'm gonna try and talk my way out of the exam; I really don't want to sit there for 3hrs to get a U, when I could just go and revise for my other exams/sleep.

That wont be possible, as all the exams are held at the same time or a maximum of a 30 min difference. It's impossible to get the questions. If it was that easy everyone would be doing it.

mmmm i did the exam the other day... i resat the 1st module so did the 3 exams in 1 day.. god that was awful.. and to make it worst i literally taught 70% of the topic to myself the day before and that is no exageration! my teach spent a minimum of 6 months of the school year off ill including 3 months before the actual exam so i had no revision lessons an half the attatchment topic was left uncovered.. but we did get a really gud teacher like twice a week for a week or two before the exam.. although he had little time to teach us anything

I really don't think people should complain I had to do all the units in one sitting all in June. Then I had to do the exam again this year, (my choice) last time I did it was in 2004.

Then again I have a really good teacher who was hardly away once. So it really depends on who you have to make the subject stick if not it sucks.
