OCR Psychology HELP!Watch
I'm in my second year of sixth form studying:
- Law (WJEC)
- French (WJEC)
- Psychology (OCR)
I have 5 offers from universities for law with French. For the university I really want to go to, I need ABB. I'm on track to get A/B in law and French. As for psychology... I got an E at AS when I was predicted a B (though my teacher really thought I'd get an A!) It was a bit of a shock because I came out the exam feeling quite good about psychology. I had revised for it more than my other exams I feel!
My sixth form wouldn't normally let anyone continue with psychology at A2 having even achieved a D at AS, but they made an exception with me because myself and the head of psychology know I have the potential to achieve at least a B.
So now I am sitting ALL my psychology exams, AS and A2, THIS SUMMER. That's on top of my exams for law and French!
I am so scared of coming out the exam feeling good about it like I did last time and then getting my results and seeing an E again! There is no way I'm going to get into the university I want to with such a result!
- Revised enough
- Attended all my lessons
- Genuinely listened, not easily distracted
- Did all my homework
- Did past papers
- Did well in my other subjects
- Have an excellent attiude towards work, as recognised by teachers
SO WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?! Did anyone else have a similar shock in the summer because two of my friends got a U, one of the best people in my psychology class got a D, I heard psychology was the second worst performed in subject across the country?
I have had my papers back and on core studies there is plenty where I've got 3/4 and I don't see why I have lost the extra mark or stuff that a psychology text book says is right I have got no marks for. I am going to partly blame my revision book I think though the one I used was an exam board certified one, recommended by the school. What does everyone else use?
Has anyone got any advice or had a similar experience? I'm trying to find a psychology tutor in the area (haven't found one as yet though). It is so important, I'm so stressed!
