You would use predicted grades given by your teacher. Unconditional offers are given to people who have already achieved the grades required (i.e. gap-year students) and/or students who show great academic excellence/potential (though it's very rare with top-end universities for the latter).

Out of those, I'm only doing psychology AQA but I can help you with that for now. The first thing I would suggest is to get access to these textbooks:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Books/AQA...ook/190868240X (year 1)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Books/AQA...4V3G6548JGAJNF (year 2)

They're written specifically in order to answer the AQA exams and are amazing! Second, I'd recommend this website and their videos:

https://www.tutor2u.net/psychology

Just make sure that you understand things as you go through them in class as there is a lot to learn and so there won't be much time to try and learn stuff later on. If you're unsure, definitely ask to go through it at lunch or during a free period.

I'm taking a psychology degree next year and am an A* student so if you need any help, feel free to message me
