    I feel like there's no people doing Edexcel! I couldn't find any topics on it, so here I go. I've been struggling with Psychology since last year and this year's issues and debates are making it even worse. I'm seriously considering dropping out lol. Does anyone have a similar problem? How do you revise? Any helpful tips? Thanks.

    I do Edexcel A2 psychology as well - it's horrible. No resources anywhere :eek:. I use revision cards and even this doesn't work very well. worried I'm going to fail. Got away with barely revising last year and being 1 mark of a B but I think i'll barely scrape a C if I don't do something fast.

    I'm really struggling too! Does anyone else find that the mark schemes only give you like 5 possible answers and in reality what you've written is correct, but just not on the mark scheme? Like research evidence for example?? So difficult

    I'm really worried about Issues and Debates too! For psychology, I like using revision cards since if you memorise the contents (studies, evaluation, etc) you should be fine. Although I am struggling to memorise all those small studies used in evaluations.:doh: How do you guys feel about the maths? We need to know how to do Chi-Squared test, standard deviation, Mann Whiney-U, Wilcoxon and I think there are others as well

    I don't particulary like the maths in psychology (and in general haha) but I think I'm alright with it! Really worried about what issues and debates are gonna come up on Wednesday :/ And I haven't even revised research methods yet, still stuck doing learning stuff!

    It was so bad, I don't think I'm even getting 50%... And I knew everything! Those 8 markers though... and a twin study that I didn't even know we had to learn in detail. :/

    Timing was a really big issue for me. I didn't finish it properly and ended up throwing some A01 sentences at some of the 8 markers hoping that it will get me half marks. :/
