I've been doing past papers for my AS exam and I'm getting U's. I don't know what to do now, because it's making me lose motivation.
Someone, please help!

Get your teachers to mark them and then use the feedback to improve your answers.

Yes I agree - ask your teachers to give your feedback. But honestly before that I would suggest for you to look over your past papers and pin point where you’re struggling. Is the structure of your answers?, application included in your answer? extented15 mark question? Or if it’s not any of these then: have you memorised and understood the content/10 core studies - if not it’s VERY hard to get pass a c (not to scare or worry you). This is because Psychology is purely a memory game with of course some explanation/elaboration and application. If your going to carry on Psychology next year (in year 13) please don’t worry or stress as your AS grade will not count to your final A level. If your dropping it at the end of your AS exam then good luck (try to remember psychology is not an easy subject and there is a LOT of memorising so If you can don’t slip back and keep practicing quesiton, and rehearsing content - you can do this! I don’t what works for you as everyone is different, but personally i think music is quite motivating and taking regular breaks will help To reduce stress)
If it’s not for you other subjects and you find psychology boring (or any other related reason), I would say the same thing for 1st year of ocr psychology (with the research methods and some core studies). I’m in the second year and from experience I can tell you the content is so much more interesting - you learn about mental illness and depending on what your college picks (2 options from child psychology, criminal psychology,excersise psychology, environmental psychology.
