    If you are getting an E, then that shows you need to get to grips with the basic concepts. You need to make decent notes, the process of which will familiarise you with the subject. You learn by making the notes.

    At some stage you are going to have to try and recall that information by trying exams. get the essays marked and then id where you lost marks by looking at mark schemes. Mark schemes show you what level of understanding they require and how to score the extra marks. If you are still struggling then you have to go back to the notes and getting to grips with the subject.

    Revision books distill the concepts down to the important parts.
    You can also watch videos on youtube and try to create or review mind maps.
    You just have to put the time in and each attempt try and improve a little by remembering a few more facts and being more relevant.

    Go back to basics and then just build on your knowledge.

    Yeah, I tried to emphasise that I’m actually really hard working but my method of working is obviously not working for this subject so I was more asking for different ideas that work well specifically for this subject. Like for physics I find it easy to go through multiple past papers to learn the information and learn the answers for questions then apply it but it doesn’t seem to work for psychology.

    Not sure if it will help but I was getting E's in psychology in L6th and then came out with an A at the end of the two years. I used flash cards and past papers and then made lists of essential research studies and their dates and made sure I knew them off by heart. Flashcards are most useful for basic facts
