    Hi!

    I’m taking my A-Level Psych exam this year and I have been predicted a B. However, I would like to get an A, simply because I want to push myself. I am fine when taking all the material for the differen topics in, and I understand it well.

    Revising is the problem, though. I’m not sure what the most effective way to do so is! I don’t like sitting and re reading my notes, and have written out flash cards which helps but it’s re reading them where I struggle and get bored. Does anyone have any active revision tips for this subject?

    Thank you in advance!

    Have you tried making bright revision posters and puttting them on your wall. Or Quizlet is a good revision tool, you can make flash cards online snd basically it tests you in different ways. You just have to keep memorising the material and try keeping revision material condensed so your spending a lot of time re reading notes. As psychology is purely a memory game and there is a heavy amount of content. I don't know about AQA but in OCR we have to remember really fine details of the core studies (we have 20 core studies in total plus on top of that other research) e.g how many girls and boys there were in the sample, mean age of participants - it's crazy tbh. There's not a huge amount of time left till the exams 😭 (I don't want to stress you out tho with that) so do as many essay plans and past papers as you can. Good luck!
