    My school has messed up in A2 psychology. We haven't got an actual psychology teacher everyone is getting Ds and Us the highest is a C. We have not moved on to unit 4 and it's nearly February. This is putting stress on the whole class we try to take out own notes but we have no one to mark our essays. I was wondering if we don't finish the course on time of the exam will that mean I can't get into uni this year? Or can the school call up and explain the situation ? If anyone know please reply this has me panicking everyday 😪 😭

    You should be studying yourself anyway. Especially for psychology. I did psychology A level and it's not really something that can be taught. You need to have studies memorised, so lessons are pointless anyway.

    you really need to start studying from home a lot more. Everyone in my classes were getting cs and ds in philosophy and ethics. Both psychology and philsophy&ethics are subjects where learning the content alone can easily get you an A*/A/B. But you've gotta put the effort in. I acknowledged the situation i was in at school wasnt ideal, but i manged to get an A through home revision.
    Although it aint ideal you've gotta put the work in at home :L

    I have began to study by myself I am finishing relationships by myself and hopefully can finish depression and media as well then do research methods.

    But I am worried about my exam techniques as there is no one there to mark so I don't even know if what I am doing is right in my essays.

    It's psychology A level for crying out loud. Two weeks self study and you should be looking at a minimum A grade.
