Hi guys,
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?

From my experience, the WJEC Psychology course is very difficult anyway. You have to memorize an insane amount of information. In terms of exam techniques your best bet I would say is to just draft and practice exam questions and past papers all the time. Revise the work and then get someone else to quiz you on it, I hope you get the grade you want sorry if this wasn't much help, I got a C at AS too x

I got an A in my psychology. I've never been the strongest at essay writing but I found practice essays really helpful. I had the 'WJEC AS 2015 revision guide' and it had around 5 practice questions per section of each approach. I did a few and gave them to my teacher to mark. I got feedback and did more. I did around 8 essay questions leading up to the exams. I also read the sample answers in the back of the book and memorised what I needed to say to stand out.
