Hi, I'm studying psychology and aiming for a B. I'm finding it hard to get every bit of information revised and im slightly worried that there is a lot of AO3 knowledge that i need to know as i struggle with remembering it all.
For example if you need to remember Bowlby's 44 thieves study. Draw what first comes to mind when you here 'Bowlby'. For me, I think of a 'bulb'. Then I would draw a thief stealing a bulb from the Child Guidance Clinic, etc. All of these images of my drawings come to mind and I can write my whole entire answer with ease!
Remember to draw big, do lots of colours, try to combine as many details as you can into one singular drawing (Chunking). Also try to draw something that mentally comes to mind as any imagine in every single word that has any sort of visual meaning. (Cue recall!!). So so effective!!!
Good luck 😊💗
What are you prioritising? AO3 of papers 1 and 3 and I will prioritise bio between paper 1 and 2
What are you struggling with? Bio, the amount of A2 studies I'm not confident in, structuring issues and debates essays, fear of failure etc
How much are you studying? 2-3 hours a day of psychology
What motivates you to study? Uni entry requirements
Any tips you could share for other psychology students? Don't do Baddeley
Are you stressed? Get bouts of awful stress and then times where I feel probably too fine
Are you feeling ready? I feel like I'm more ready than I'm letting myself think
What do you do in your free time? Sleep or look at social media (although decided to deactivate Facebook and Twitter a while back- they're too distracting)
In what ways are you ensuring the potential best grade and mindset? Trying to stay calm and tell myself this is a way to prove myself to the uni and I can only do my best I guess
Predictions? Really not sure!
If anyone has any advice please share... It's a struggle but a couple of weeks and it'll all be over! agh
What are you prioritising? Attachment and Psychopathology are where I need to look over the content because I remember pretty much nothing...
What are you struggling with? Finding the motivation, as well as, the little fiddly questions where you either know it or you don't...
How much are you studying? maybe 30 minutes a day if I do? i know, how bad is that
What motivates you to study? currently nothing because I get stressed over how much i have left to do and then procrastinate to stop the stress but it goes in a cycle -.-
Any tips you could share for other psychology students? Read through the whole paper first, sometimes they answer their own question later or it gives you a cue for a previous question <3
Are you stressed? Yes, no, who bloody knows?
Are you feeling ready? Uhhhh no xD
What do you do in your free time? Procrastinate <3
In what ways are you ensuring the potential best grade and mindset? Ummmm....does sleeping count? xD
Predictions? Not a clue, sorry <3
