    Hello everyone

    Just thought I'd start this because it already seems like our A2 year is going to be hard, I'm already struggling with the amount of studies we have to learn!

    AS Grade: B
    Predicted A2 Grade: A
    Topics Studied: Forensic Psychology and Sport & Exercise Psychology.
    Thoughts so far: It's so hard but also very interesting!

    Hi! :wavey: I guess I'll introduce myself:
    AS Grade: A
    Predicted A2 Grade: A
    Topics Studied: Forensic and Health & Clinical psychology.
    Thoughts so far: It's hard to believe that we've gone a third of the Options paper already!!!

    I was just wondering if anyone knows what approach Wakefield's study would fall into? (The one about smoking legislation in health belief, Health & Clinical. Some people do the chip pan fire study so may not do this one). It's really bugging me as I want to categorise it!

    How are you finding the essays? That's a change from AS I didn't like

    Hey,
    I'm studying Health & Clinical and Forensic psychology. My teacher is the worst teacher ever, we are literally self-teaching so any help would be brilliant.
    The essays aren't too bad once you get a hang of them, you just need to contextualise. Not gonna lie, I really miss AS though.

    Also, how far have you guys got into the course?

    Sorry, I have literally only just seen this


    I'm actually doing pretty well in the essays! I've had 1 15 marker and I got full marks and 2 10 markers where I got 10/10 and 6/10. It's remembering all the studies that I'm struggling immensely though. I wish I was doing Health & Clinical, I know some of it already so it'd be a lot easier. How are they going for you?

    Ikr, this is 10x worse. And yeah, I remember them vaguely, just need a lot more detail.

    I'm really struggling with learning every single study and all the details. I know the outline but not like the sample or anything. How can I learn them?? Is anyone else having the problem??

    Hey everyone,

    I'm also doing OCR A2 Psychology and finding it hard to revise everything after how differently we were taught last year! Has anyone got any tips or advice?

    Thank-you in advance.

    Hi Guys,
    I'll introduce myself too...
    AS Grade: A
    Predicted A2 Grade: A
    Topics Studied: Forensic Psychology and Health & Clinic Psychology.
    Thoughts so far: I love learning more theory as opposed to learning 15 studies in immense detail but I can see the sheer number of studies we have to know this year will kill me

    I use an app on my phone called Flashcards and it's sooo good when it comes to learning the little details from the studies. Takes a while to set up but it's worth it!

    Hi! This isn't a big deal as you don't have to remember all of these details like we had to for AS. Just round the sample number, like for one that's 17,247 just say in the exam (if it's relevant to put this) the sample was around 17,000. It is quite difficult though IFor every study, I type a summary sheet (which I try to fit on one page), highlighting the important results (as you don't need all of them), conclusions and other stuff I could use to support essay questions

    It's alright

    At the start of A2, I was consistently getting 7/10 in the part a questions, which was annoying but I got an 8/10 recently I keep on getting 12/15 in the 15 markers as well, but tbh it's higher than I thought I'll get due to a different writing style than AS. I just want to see what I got in my mocks

    I've been getting full marks in the homeworks essays (apart from one annoying 6/10), it's the studies that's the problem for me. There's too many of them! I hope you get you mock back soon!

    My teacher told me one sentence each for Aim, Sample, Method, Findings, Conclusions and then the evaluation. I only found that out today ~ I've been trying to learn them in waaaaaay too much detail haha
