How are you feeling about this exam?
What studies are you expecting to come up?
Do you think that we will get questions asking to design our own study(like last year) ?

Hello, I do Psychology but I don't think many others seem to do it at a GCSE I really hope they don't ask us to conduct our own study...

Omg the 2014 paper was really good. I can only hope it'll be just as straight forward... But then again there's no good predictions of the paper on the internet or any good revision material just because no one does the course at gcse 😐😐

I am doing Psychology GCSE - quite nervous about it, and feel very under-prepared! There's very little revision (as Ayooo said) material, which has made it hard, and I have really struggled with learning the studies not looking forward to it!

Same, even though my teacher said if they do we can basically just use an existing study but alter it a bit

Are you doing AQA? Just buy the AQA GCSE Psychology textbook- it's got everything you need

I thought the 2014 paper had quite different questions than other papers? Just a few though, including the 'design your own study' question, other than that yeah it is quite straightforward

I bought the textbook a while ago when I started studying, but it's just remembering all the studies that I struggle with!

I made some flash cards for memory NVC. If they're any help, feel free to pass them around.https://www.brainscape.com/packs/570...ferrer=1412908

I'll keep adding to it with the other topics over the next few days.
Good luck with your exams guys!

EDIT: Personality cards are up now.

Sex and Gender is mainly theory and evaluation. Although, there will be studies that you have to have knowledge of. For example, Little Hans (Psychodynamic), Perry and Bussey (Social Learning), Martin (Gender Schema). All this applies if you're doing AQA, which I hope you are or else all what I have just written becomes entirely usesless!

EDIT: Just to note, a lot what appears in Sex and Gender also appears in Aggression and a little in Social Influence, which is always helpful when trying to revise.

YES I am doing AQA, and indeed I have noticed the topics to overlap (like social learning theories and vicarious learning). Also Lil Hans is the Freud's study isn't?

In general what are the grade boundaries like for an A*?

Anyway thanks a ton! xo

That is just a roundabout way to test whether you know the study isn't? You kinda recall what you know but put it in the first person pronoun 'I'.

Nope, you don't. Though it's good if you think it will help with your understanding.

Yeah, they do. And yes, Little Hans is Freud's study (just to remeber if you already haven't, Little Hans was a case study and Freud psychoanalysed him to be going through the Oedipius complex; so in this instance you won't need to, nor be asked to write an AIM, METHOD, RESULTS and CONCLUSION).

The grade boundaries for last June (2014) are here.

Although grade boundaries are subject to change each year, generally for an A*, you're looking at late 60's to early 70's; this all depends on how difficult the paper was.

No worries, good luck!
