    Hi it seems no one has made a thread for the AQA 2016 psychology i could only find the 2015 one, and the 2016 OCR one, so i thought ill make one.


    Psychology 2015 grades

    AS grade B
    A2 predicted A

    for unit 3 i'm doing sleep relationships and aggression for unit 4 addiction depression and research methods.


    Feel free to ask any questions
    Good luck with the A grade ! Hope you get it. I have found websites like simple psychology really really helpful,, I am doing the new spec AQA A so apparently its way different to what you are doing. I have some friends in year 13 and they are going to these couses in Windsor, Malpcourses . co . uk, they have individual day sessions on things like aggression and Research methods for AS and A2. I am not going to the paper two course for AS butc can't afford to do both. I think they only do AQA ,maybe Ocr aswell, not sure, but I missed the London courses so this will do.

    trying to condense my essays in order for me to be able to memorize them all, for A02/A03 if i described one study really well and gave it multiple evaluation points, for example maybe 8 points as well as 2 IDAs would i be able to still get a high grade B/A , as i understand you don't need to cover 16 marks in the evaluation to get a high grade maybe only 10 marks really so thinking i might as well only learn enough evaluation for 10 marks to cut down all the information i have to memorize.

    AS - Grade B
    A2 - hoping for a B or and A if possible

    You need to evaluate the theory as a whole in relation to the studies, not just the studies alone as you wont score high marks with this. Also I would advise you to try and learn more, for example 4 good evaluation points and 2 IDA's, rather than just aiming for 10 marks because there is no guarantee that you will get those 10 marks, so its better to learn more, so theres more of a chance of you getting a high mark.

    I made voice notes of Aggression, Relationships, Eating Behaviour, Addiction and Schizophrenia using my Macbook's Text to Speech generator, each essay is like 9 mins long so perfect to listen to before doing the essays or on the way to school and back, you can sacrifice listening to music for a few months lol. They're from my A* essay notes. They're good and easy to understand but take a bit to get used to the computer voice but it's all good. Trying to find a way to upload them somehow.

    woo just seen this, why havn't your school got you another teacher? Are you teaching yourself? simple psychology is a good website, has helped me loads, its practically structured how to write essays and it also makes points quite clear
