Hey! Coming from someone who's already done AQA psych a level, I'd say it's not essential for you to evaluate each eval point you have Counter-evaluating is fab, and teachers/examiners love it, but I wouldn't worry too much about it - it looks sillier if you force eval points than if you don't have one, if that makes sense?

If it reassures you, I got an A* in psych, and I very very rarely counter-evaluated - I just stuck with the good ones that I knew! (God knows there's enough to remember in psych already )

Good luck with the rest of the year! If you want any resources/advice or whatever feel free to PM me!

Thanks! Can I ask, how did you structure your 16 marker essays?

Depended on what topic, but generally (excluding Issues and Debates ones which were just plain weird tbh):

6 AO1 points/extended sentences
AO3:
Eval point - point about research support
Eval point - further eval of supporting research
Eval point - usually one unique to that topic
Eval point - point about the research methods used; a generalisable (idek if that's a word) one that you can use for p much any topic
Eval point - counter-evaluation if I had time/there was one

If you had to talk abt two topics in one essay I usually did it split, so 3 AO1 points, 2 eval points, 3 AO1 points on the other topic, 2/3 eval points

I know some people who did all their AO1 together and all their AO3 together tho so it's really up to you

Hope that helped somewhat??
