Revising for AQA A level psychologyWatch
Try teaching other people the content! If you can teach someone else the studies and theories then you know you've got that one down. If you struggle teaching something then you know what you need to go over again. It doesn't have to be a person either! I taught a lot of psychology to my cat last year for my AS exam and as stupid as it sounds, it does work!
Try thinking of little rhymes or tunes to put details to! While I didn't do this specifically for psychology last year it really helped with remembering things for chemistry as I'd just hum them to myself in the exam.
If you're struggling to remember both content and evaluation for studies then just focus on the content. Majority of evaluation points for studies come from their method. If you know their sample, you'll know whether or not it's generalisable. If it was a lab experiment, odds are it lack ecological validity but is reliable. Hopefully this will take a little bit of the stress off of the studies!
I'm not a big mindmap fan myself but they do have their place! They help me get my ideas on paper and you can use it to test yourself. For example, make a mindmap for Milgram and then hide it, get a blank page and just write down whatever you remember about the study. Compare your mindmaps when you're done and see if you missed anything out or added anything extra.
Hope I've helped and anymore questions, just ask!
