    I suggest you try and make model answers for everything and then try memories them by chunking them down etc. On the positive note you only need to resit the one module whereas, I have both to do (not resist though). And you do have an A so that would still give you a good overall grade as long as you don't do too bad on the resist

    In the sleep topic for the circadian rhythm section, which essay plan did you do? The one in the book says 'describe and evaluate research into circadian rhythms' but would you suggest preparing another essay on circadian rhythms in general just in case they don't specifically ask for research?
    If they ask for circadian rhythms in general it is alright to just talk about research, so doing one plan that addresses both is good enough

    I need to get an A in A2 to get into uni and I'm so not prepared for this. I've done most of my essays and had them marked and they're mostly 17+ (according to Loopa it's 16 for an A or something?) but I can't remember any of them!
    The only way I managed to get through them was memorise my essays/plans for weeks, using imagery or mnemonics or anything that just stuck. It's a pain but that's all I can suggest to do

    Our teacher has given up teaching research methods and has started revision, we only got halfway through and I still have all the inferential tests, design a study etc. to teach myself? Is this possible? I don't know whether to laugh or cry:crossedf:

    Definitely possible. I've taught myself the whole AS and A2 course in about two months. Research methods only took about 5 days. Just go through the companion book and make notes. About two spreads of the book (4 pages) a day, you'll have it down in a week. I think there are 14 spreads, so 7 days. Read any other sources online if you need extra support. Then just practice questions. Research methods is fine.

    Hey guys I'm new to this thread but I study psychology and I'm doing A2 at the moment. I got a B in AS (Unit 1-B and Unit 2-A. 4 ums off an A overall). I do gender, aggression and relationships for Unit 3 and Schizophrenia, Media and Research Methods for Unit 4. I was wondering if any of you have any tips on Schizophrenia essays as I am finding that mine are too long. In Unit 3, my essays usually contain 6 evaluation points and I can do them comfortably in 30 minutes but when I try the same approach for my Schizophrenia essays, my word count is way too long so any support or advice I am welcome to. Also, in Media with video games and celebrity are we mainly using studies for A01 and then evaluating those studies as A02??? One last thing. Does anyone have a good influence of culture on romantic relationships essay and Gender Schema Theory

    Wow you are a lifesaver, you have made it seem so much more manageable, thank you! I don't think I would be able to teach myself the whole course, congratulations on that I hope you do amazing in the exam!!

    It depends on what sub-topic you are taking for each unit. For unit 3 you will have 3 sub topics e.g aggression, sleep and intelligence. If you look at the spec you will find all the possible essays for each sub-topic
