Hi! Just had a few questions about the AS Psychology mock which is on Thursday 8th for me!

1) Are all Psychology mocks the same form school to school?
2) How big a deal are they? I've revised like crazy but my friends say they aren't that big a deal.
3) Will Research Methods be in it as we have only covered a bit of that unit in class?

Thank you!

Each school sets its own 'mock' exams - we use past papers but only on work we have taught. Did your teacher not explain what s/he would be setting e.g. how long the paper is?

It's usually based on what exam board you're on (each exam board teaches different topics in psychology for each unit) and what you've covered in class.

For instance if you do AQA and you've finished all of unit 1, then there's a good chance it'll be a unit 1 paper from AQA.

Mocks are important as they help you guide your revision as they highlight your weaker/stronger areas of that unit. I would treat them as the real thing as they'll serve as good practice and will help but if you don't do as well as expected, then take something from it as it was only a mock and not the real thing.

Ah I see, I thought it was something more like the real exams where they are standardised haha.
No, she didn't really explain it, but I guess it's kind of like the GCSE mocks then?
Thank you.

Your safest bet is to ask your teacher for definite as they will know more than us

True! The mock is a few days after I go back, so if I revise everything I've coverered and leave Research Methods, then ask her when I get back. Thank you, very true!
