How long to stay on each question for A2 Psychology?Watch
For reminders, the psychology exam is 2 hours long and there are 3 sections (of the first exam)
Schizo (or whatever you might've studied)
Anomalistic (again or whatever you were made to study)
and Research methods (**** you research methods)
Each section is worth 25 marks each (i think)
and the questions range from 10 markers, 4 marks for AO1 and 6 marks for AO2
8 (AO1)and 16 (AO2) markers
5 and 10 markers (same as above)
Would you all say about a minute a mark? Or what? because im really not sure. Thanks guys.
We have three topics to cover in the exam which are Schizophrenia & Mood Disorders, Forensic Psychology and Cognitive Development (in children).
In each, we have one 12 marker and then a couple of 2,3,4 or 5 markers; but each section is worth 20 marks so the amount of questions given for each section differs according to how many marks they're worth!
At home when revising I never timed myself when answering the short hand questions or the essay 12 marker but considering you have three topics to do in a 2 hour exam, it means you've got 40 minutes on each. For a 12 marker you're suppsoed to spend 22 isn minutes on it, and they say it's like a minute per mark on the shorter questions!
