For my psychology mock I got a B overall with Bs on both papers. However it took a lot of revision and memorising- and my friend told me some of the topics that came up on one of the papers as she did it before (which I honestly really regret because it totally doesn't help me making my choice with an inaccurate mock..). I worry that at A2 it will be difficult for me to learn and memorise all of the content and studies so am not sure whether to quit while I'm ahead. I do enjoy the course and find it interesting however.
English Lit is the really tricky one. I got an A at GCSE but during A level it has been difficult- my technique needs a lot of work and I seem to be consistently getting band 3 in my work which is not brilliant. However most of these are essays written under time pressure which is the main problem- how anybody is supposed to create an argument, develop it and evaluate it within 6 paragraphs during one hour is beyond me and I always seem to panic and write crap. On the other hand I did do a piece of work (untimed) that our teacher marked and I did okay on. She then made everybody rewrite and change parts using her feedback and after I did this she said there were almost no faults and that I was in band 5.
Another thing that my English Lit teacher told me was that if I dropped the subject at AS I would probably get around a C whereas if i continued until A2 she thinks I could improve and reach an A. I don't know whether I should believe this and commit for it all to go wrong and I end up completely regretting my choice.
Any help or advice at all would be hugely appreciated, I'm so torn right now..
