    Hey! I'm in year 12 and I've just started AS Psychology and i was wondering if anyone has any notes or knows a website that can explain to me how to answer exam questions e.g. what a 4 mark question response needs, 12 mark structure etc. Any help would be great!

    You need to look at the command word and figure out whic AO it's asking for.

    EG, 'Outline' is AO1, whereas 'Apply' is AO2.

    This is something you will learn over time.

    Then it's a case of looking at the marks and the command words and splitting them accordingly.

    Look at mark schemes to help you understand the structure - that's what your teacher will use to mark you against.

    These will be helpful:
