Hey!
So i did GCE AS level psychology for the first time (paper 1 was social and cognitive, and paper 2 was biological and learning) and i'm scared because the grade boundaries have been so low over the years, which makes me feel like they are really strict when marking answers...is that right? Are they really strict??

I did the AS last year and got the paper back. For some of the 8 markers I was really suprised at my mark. For example an evaluate Milgram 8 marker got only 4 marks when in class when my teachers have marked it I got 6. So I guess you could say they are quite harsh but the grade boundaries will make up for this hopefully.

4 markers I tended to get 2 on because my justification of the strength/weakeness was not enough and they wanted quite a bit of justification.
