Here's the AQA specification: http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/psych...on-at-a-glance

If you're not sitting AS exams (because you don't need to) then ignore the AS section as it is confusing.
If you are then basically you sit 2 exams at the end of AS which are 1hr 30 minutes each. Paper 1 (1st exam) is made up of social influence, memory and attachment like you said. Paper 2 (2nd exam) is approaches, psychopathology and research methods.

Once onto A2 content those AS exams have no contribution to your final grade (hence why you don't have to sit them) as the content is tested again at the A2 exams. For A2 you will sit 3 exams which are 2hrs each and this time: Paper 1 is social influence, memory, attachment AND psychopathology. Paper 2 is approaches, biopsychology and research methods. Paper 3 is issues and debates (compulsory) and then your teacher will pick which optional topics you will take. The optional topics are split into 3 groups (below) so your teacher chooses one from each category.
Option 1: Relationships, Gender or Cognition and development
Option 2: Schizophrenia, Eating behaviour or StressOption 3: Aggression, Forensic Psychology or Addiction

If this hasn't answered your question let me know and i'll try my best help you!
