    Hi I am thinking of taking a gap year out of my uni and reapply for computer science. I have grades AAB in maths, bio and psychology respectively but need AAA for warwick which i was really impressed by the department.
    Do you think if I leave now and considering the exams are in June I would be able to get an A if I know all my content?
    Thanks in advance

    Yes absolutely, a-level psychology is just one big memory test if you work hard over the next four months you will smash it.

    Self-taught the full A Level Psychology within three weeks last year and got a C. Wouldn't recommend squeezing it in like that but imagine what you could do with four months. Good luck!

    Of course if you work very hard and use the right revision/memorisation techniques you will do great! What exam board are you doing for Psychology? AQA?

    Hi, yes I am doing AQA! I am thinking of getting a private tutor because i remember from high school my teacher wasn't that great. Or could anyone recommend what to use?

    Hi, from what I know I think some of the content is similar and i still have my notes from A2 for which I had self taught, seeked help from my teacher but also relied very heavily on loopa which Idon't think was wise because a lot of students had used that so my answers may have been very similar hence I got a B in one of the papers and a D in the other paper. But because I got an a in as it averaged to a B.
    Has anyone know any private tutors etc whose students have achieved a good solid A/A*.
    Im okay with learning content but I realised through alevel it's more to do with application and exam techniques.

    Yeah that is true- I'm okay I think going over my content and its just the applicatuon questions and revision techniques that I struggle and need direction. I got a B in one of the papers and D in one of the papers which avergaed out to a B as I got an A in AS level. But I would honestly say I spent way less time on psychology because I worked much harder for maths and biology alevel which is why psychology was my worst grade-B.
