    I got my english lit mark up from a D to an A.
    But then I did revise A LOT.

    However I barely revised at all for my sociology exam as it was the day after my eighteenth birthday, and still go a high A.

    A decent amount. Not as much as I would for summer exams say, but overall I'm pleased with what I got.

    I revised really hard for psychology and got an E.
    Revised the night before a Sociology exam because i spent my time revising for psychology and got a D (which is good for this particular paper as i've sat it twice, both times achieving a U) I think i would have achieved higher if i had managed my time better in the exam because i spent way too long on one essay leaving me 10 minutes for the next one which i knew exactly how to answer but didn't have time to
    Revised a couple of nights before another sociology exam and got a B.
    Didn't really revise per-se for the A2 sociology exam but just paid alot of attention during lessons, did all the homeworks and practiced past papers and achieved a B, which i am extremely proud of as only 3 people achieved and A at our college in this exam and only 6 people achieved a B

    Personally I think for psychology you need the whole year to study it, and if the exams are in Jan, the unit ends up getting cramped and not enough time for revision in lessons.

    I don't agree. It's all about exam technique. even if you cramp everything within a week to the psychology exam, you need to know the structure. Its all exam technique. I got an A in psychology even though I didnt revise as much for it compared to other subjects because i knew the format in answering questions, with the knowledge you have.

    In psychology just memorise the facts, the rest is essay technique. you dont need the whole year to study it because the AS in psychology is very simple. A01 and A02 is all you need to remember.

    I agree, but some find it easier to do it, and end up doing better, some need more time to grasp the idea.

    I studied quite hard for these exams, and they paid off for three (got full marks in chemistry unit 4!!) of them (well one of my history resits was 3 UMS off an A - seriously peed about that) For the other history module I did I got a C, so my hard work really didnt pay off.
