All I can suggest is putting 2 days aside, write up every possible 12 marker, then highlight the key points/words and create a mind map and condense the A01 and A02 onto revision cards. Then just do as many past papers as possible as a lot of PSYA1 is based of research methods which caught me out last year so the papers will give a good idea of the way they will incorporate the research methods into developmental and cognitive. hope this helps

Last year i got an E in the mock and got a C in the actual exams overall. It depends on how you understand it, make mindmaps for approaches and just do past questions and just drill in the information. Trust me unit 1 is mainly knowledge and if you nail the 10 markers you'll be fine. I'm retaking unit 1 and just started a few days ago a lot of it is easy to remember if you put your mind to it. Good luck
