Hi, I do AQA Psychology too, and I'm in Year 12. We only do internal exams for Psychology since this new linear A Level, which don't count towards our real A Level. Is that the same for you?

Yep that's the same for us too. We only do two papers: Paper one consists of memory, social influence and attachment and paper two - A bit of Approaches, bio-psychology, psychopathology and research methods.

It's hard to predict bc new spec, and if someone gives a reasonable prediction don't just concentrate on that since it legit could be anything. AQA is nasty, they repeated the same question 4 yrs in a row for the old spec (I think it was about the working memory model)

Really? We only do Paper 2, despite having learned most of the topics in Paper 1 is well... You can find specimen papers on the AQA website for this new spec: http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/psych...ment-resources

Only paper two this year? Paper two is harder I think so good luck. And yes thank you for that but I was wondering if anyone had any strong predictions on what may appear on the two papers

I would say this year for paper 1 the 12 marker for social influence: may be outline research into conformity so aschs reserch and evaluation
memory: multistore model or ewt
attachment: one of bolwbys theories or cultural variations or animal studies

For paper 2 iwould say the 12 marker for approaches may be the cognitive aproach
psycopathology: either behavioural approach to explaining phobias , biological approach to reating ocd or definitions abnormality. all the other 12 markers for psycopathology have come up in recent papers so i would suggest revising these two which haven't come up.

if you want more conformation on what topics to revise for the upcoming papers use this website :

he gives predictions which may come up for the exam
