    I've got my first 'big' test coming up for psychology and I'm curious to know what techniques you guys use for the subject and how you write out your notes.

    I used mind maps, repetition, practice papers, flash cards, making quizzes.

    I got an A last year at AS and I can tell you the best revision technique I had was flash cards!

    I spent a large amount of the year flash carding ever study, theory, practical and key questions from every topic. It took me ages but that was cause I didn't start early but it was so worth it. Once done constantly go over one or two a day and you'll do great.

    Mindmaps can also be helpful in picking out the important parts and condense your notes but it only made a few.

    Past questions are good too cause the wording can be quite weird in psychology but marking the longer answer ones yourself can be a pain and teachers can take a while to mark them.

    Good luck dude, hope you do well!
