I’m doing psychology revision and I have so much to do, I need to memorise Memory, social influence, Biopsychology, schizophrenia, issues and debates, forensic psychology, attachments, psychopathology, research methods. I know bits and pieces of these topics but not in immense detail. My exams start on 4th of June and I’m so stressed out, what do I do? I need to get at least a B in this subject

Just read your notes over and over and get someone to test you. You’ll be fine, good luck. Eventually the information will stick.

I'm in the same boat as you.
Look at the 'Check it' questions at the bottom right of the textbook pages and test your knowledge after memorising each page.
It's important to do the 16 markers too that it provides to practise essay writing and timing. This is also really important for evaluation practice.

Goodluck!!

I am taking psychology A2 this year too and yes there is an intimidating amount of content. I find that the best way to actually remember content is to test retest. I understand it takes a bit of effort but reading over notes/text books and then going back doing questions on what you did in your last revision session is really effective. Do you have the green and pink haired girl books for the AQA syllabus? It has several apply it’s per page and works really well to put content into context instead of being the monotonous AO1 AO3 which our ‘wonderful’ syllabus provides. If not, there are a couple of apps based on these text books which are ok in terms quiz questions but not exactly great value for money.
I am glad it’s not just me stressing about how much content there is if I’m honest.
I hope this helps and good luck.
