    I really want help on how to revise for Psychology, I'm aiming for an A if not a B! However I need really good revision tips that will allow me to remember things easily and for a long period of time.

    I know the basic revision tips such as flashcards,mindmaps, past papers but they don't seem to help much! Is there other ways?

    Thank you

    Which examining board are you sitting?

    I suggest you practise past papers.
    When doing this be precise, learn how to answer the question, and learn to write your answers logically and coherently.
    I suggest you read and mentally test yourself. Learn a lot of studies and how to elaborate on evaluation (IDA, GRENADES- hope you're familiar with these)

    You could try:
    - teaching others
    - recording yourself and listening back to it
    - repeating things aloud
    - revising with classmates
    - drawing diagrams
    - making a song of it
    - a silly story to help it stick
    - making notes from textbook then summarising those further into your own words (try having a limit on number of words to stick to key points)
    - writing things over and over again
    - using colour

    What is IDA and GRENADES?
    It was something my teacher made up, but it seemed that when I was revising for psychology in 2014 on tsr, others came across these terms. I'm sure you have too, they're just acronyms.

    Generalisability
    Reliability/Reductionist
    Ethical issues
    Nature vs Nurture
    Androcentric
    Deterministic
    Ethnocentric

    That's on the top of my head
    Ida= individual differences

    All of these should be included in your evaluation alongside studies (which you obviously have to critique Individually/ apart from unit 3)

    Remember your AO1 (facts and knowledge), AO2 (application of knowledge to scenario Q's) , AO3 (evaluate/ GRAVE/GRENADE)

    What is the question actually asking you to do?

    Have a look at the AQA revision checklist I've uploaded on the other thread - EVERYTHING you need to know for your exams.
