Advice on A level Psychology!

    • Thread Starter

    Need some help doing A level psychology please! I am finding it quite hard, I will start going to my teacher after school from next week as I am aiming for an A in Psychology. I am taking Mathematics and Business with it alongside, this year's business studies has no coursework at all so it's not going to be as easy as the years below. I need to balance everything out.

    I am taking AS at the moment, I am completely new to A levels and I was asking for some advice you guys can give me! Any useful resources as I am doing AQA PSYCHOLOGY. It would be great even if you tell me how you experienced it and your suggestions on passing it. Thanks!

    I am starting my second year of A-levels and I got a B in AS Psychology (and hope to get an A by the end of year 13).
    Here are things I reckon might help you.
    1) Do 12/16 markers ALL THE TIME. By the looks of your subjects, I reckon you aren't an essay writing kind of person (I know I am definitely not and I am doing Biology and Maths), so I can not stress enough how much these questions can hold, the difference between a grade can be 5/6 marks so...
    2) I discovered this AQA revision app at the end of last year called AQA Revision Psychology AS&Year1 I think (it has a picture of a girl with green hair on the icon) which I found really good for drumming facts in as it was multiple choice and I could do it anywhere (and I think it was only a couple of pounds). If not then make yourself revision cards and keep them up to date (do them after each lesson or something). These are a great way to drum in the names of different psychologists and their statistics.
    3) I like posters, make them pretty and put them up on your wall proudly (if you like that sort of thing).

    Basically I loved last years course and hope you do to
