I have got a C in AS psychology but I was expecting a B in it at least. my exam went so well that I was sure, I would get an A or a B as I wrote everything that was written on the revision guide but due to some reason, I ended up getting a C which is below my standards.
I reckon, It is because my exam techniques were not that good and they need to be improved. Therefore, can any of you guys help me out by telling me the specific exam technique required for A level psychology?

What exam board are you on? I'm OCR and have been getting As and full marks in all mocks for Psych but in the exam did a bit poorly in the research methods exam (essentially a C) and my overall grade dropped to a B which isn't terrible but was a massive blow and surprise for me.
For Psych, I've noticed, its about 40% knowledge and 60% exam technique. I think that's what had let me and other down this year.To get an A* I'm thinking that answers need to be more concise and to the point as Psychology exams need to be answered as a science and less as a humanities subject i think
