I know this is quite early, but then again I thought why not. A post for A2 Psychology.

How are you guys feeling about starting A2 Psychology? What are your expected and aspirational target grades?

Feel free to share notes or anything in general, we can all help each other out throughout the year

It's not too bad if you make sure you start preparing for the exam early so you're familiar with all the names (there is a lot to learn!) I'd also advise getting used to the essay style as soon as possible so you can practice a lot over the year. You can download some model answers for pretty cheap on the internet I think (that's what I did and I got A*). Stuff like this is great once you know what topics you are doing:

Best of luck!

I'm doing Spec A.

I got a B in AS, I'm hoping to somehow get an A* this year (a lot of work I know)
It'd be really good if we could continue this throughout the year to the exam time and share notes and have discussions to keep us motivated

Hey nice to see people are still posting

I think we're doing Relationships and Aggression for sure and for Unit 4 Schizophrenia, Media and Research methods.

When are you all planning to start revising? and which books are you using?

Hey guys! I'm doing AQA A

Managed to achieve a 'B' at AS, with 2 marks off an A, so hoping for an 'A' at A2 overall!

My teachers haven't told us yet whichever topics we're going to do

Nevertheless, I can't wait to start Psychology. It's the last year of Sixth Form and we can all do this!

We're not too sure on our topics too, hopefully within the first week of Sixth Form we'll know.

When do you all guys go back?

Well I always PLAN to start revising immediately but that never works out Hopefully this year will be different though.

I think our A2 textbook is white and blue, can't remember who its by. I'll also be using a 'myrevisionnotes' revision guide by Jean-Marc Lawton, which I think is great for giving a general overview of topics..
I'll also try using Saj Devshi's model answers, and probably borrow The Complete Companion book from one of my friends.

:mad: Psychology is one of those subjects where there isn't just a one stop guide (not to my knowledge anyway) so you have to accumulate from a million different places lol. Really hoping for an A* as well.
