    Every year there are predictions as to what questions would be most likely to come up.

    No, but as there was an incident where papers had been stolen. Half of the schools took the original and the other half took the replacement paper which makes it harder for people to predict the questions for the next exam. E.g. AQA could be cheeky and use the same question from the original paper from last year on the next exam as only half had actually had been examed on it. Also AQA had this sequence on which exam question would come up next but I fear that that is now broken.

    Oh I see, you mean the process of predicting is hard, I thought you meant the predictions themselves haha. Yes I know about the papers being stolen, I followed it all last year, but that's only for PSYA4 and I quite like the questions they got last year!

    Lol I took the exam last year. I ended up with a B overall and took a gap year hoping to bump it up to an A. I can safely say no one liked the Media questions but research methods was a piece of cake.

    our teacher did it for the those attending from our school but there should be a checkout section and I think it says coupon code, we got 50% off but my cousin and his mates paid full whack on one course but he has now booked himself onto two more at half price. At normal price its expensive but a lot of people have said how good the courses are and that it is worth it.

    Sorry buddy was just trying to help in my ass ended way. Simply psychology is a great website probably one of the best I have seen.

    For me I KNOW notes are not enough so I want to attend revision days where possible so I can ask questions. I put that on your thing in case it may be of interest but it is only in Windsor and I guess if you live more than 30 miles out it might be a bit of a treck

    Lol I've already secured a decent grade, I don't think travelling from London to Windsor for an A*/A is worth it imo.
