    Thanks! 😊 Also I wanted to ask just out of curiosity, what did you get at AS?
    Plus, do you have any revision tips and what textbooks did you use?
    I got an A at AS (Predicted an A* at A2)
    For revision... I'd say start now tbh there is a LOT of content and I would say summarise the notes in your own words and remember to always link it back to the question. I did ALL the questions i could find, old spec or new. my school used 2 books, currently using the complete companion book (AS has a cat on it) and i also used a blue on with a brain on it for additional evaluation points.

    I would say make sure you understand the mark scheme and understand what you need to do to get 12/12 on the 12 markers. Learn the research methods, as the evaluation is mainly bsing a lot on that.
    For example
    'Low ecological validity due to lab settings, meaning it can't be applied to surroundings but cause its a lab setting it has a high replicability due to the controlled conditions, and also it means a cause and effect relationship is established' This is a good skeletal formula.

    Personally how i made notes was i went ahead of the class and made notes beforehand and put more in each lesson to develop them more and then i asked the teacher if I was confused on the wording of certain points.

    If you need any help just ask me! Ive started to memorise AS content so feel free to get any tips from me! (not sounding cocky but I easily get 12/12 or 11/12) now 16 markers but ill be happy to help!

    If anyone wants to take a look any of my 12/16 markers to look at my evaluation structure or anything like that, just PM me. Don't want to sound big-headed or anything but they're all high-grade level. I have them for all of AS I think, so long as you actually use them to revise/help develop your own essays rather than passing them off as your own work. That's a no no

    Oh yes please, I'd love to see a sample

    Yeah, my teacher has taught us PEE aswell, but now she has introduced PEEHL = Point, Evidence, Explain, However, Link. I just use PEE though, and if I can memorise evaluation points I can still get full marks without the However and Link.
