I've been revising but nothing seems to be sinking in I understand everything but I can't seem to remember a lot. I'm currently doing a past paper my tutor gave me and I keep having to look up the answers in my notebooks

In the mock exam my tutor gave us I had a D which was wonderful (I was only 2 marks from a C) -____-

How do you remember studies and names? All I can seem to remember properly is that Atkinson and Shriffin created the Multi-Store Model and Baddely created the Working Memory Model.

I also keep getting annoyed at myself and end up watching crap on youtube.

Also, how many studies per topic should I try to remember?

^my life basically.. Dw all you just have to do is keep going over the exam past papers, eventually similar things come up. 2 months ago i got a C in my mock, but the i did all the pastpapers and kinda got use to the questions and started thinking like the mark scheme. in my last mock, i got an A for UNIT1 and B for unit2. now all im focusing on are the long answer questions. ive done every long anwer question the could possibly come up for UNIT1.

GoodLuck

Psychology at the start of Year 12 was fabulous. For Attachment, we had an RE teacher who studied Psychology when he was a Chaplain in a Mental Hospital. For everything else we had a Psychologist who knew everything about anything psychological. He had so many experiences - it was fantastic! Sadly, he fell ill in November and still hasn't made a full recovery.

So, the RE teacher took over full time - got the revision books / text books out and made a start from scratch. In the mock, everyone got a B or higher. The main reason we did is because we used the skills we learnt - it's quite simple:

Read a piece of information - anything! Highlight it, bring out the key information.

Transform it into something that you shall remember. A Mind Map is a bit boring, but it works. I like the idea of a comic strip of a wordle.

This shall take the information from your short term memory into your long term memory - enabling you to remember it.

Another thing: Don't overload on your revision, do bits at a time in chunks. So, if you do an hour on attachment - stick to it.

Heres the studies that I have been revising for the exam:

Attachment:
Ainsworth,
Bowlby,
Lorenz,
Kroonenberg and van Ijzendoorn.

Memory:
Atkinson and Shriffin,
Baddeley.

Stress:
Johannesburg

Conformity:
Zimbardo, ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_LKzEqlPto )
Milgram,

Plus others - but I would stick to those ones if you want to do minimal revision.

Don't worry, you'll be grand.
