I need help! Basically Iv been revising for psychology by writing flashcards and then doing 16 markers but then I end up forgetting the information when I go back to recap. What’s a really effective way to revise?

Make mindmaps or graphic organisers for the topics with empty spaces to fill the information in. Print them off and try to retrieve the information from memory after doing flash cards a few times, the visual helps.

Hi,
I did Psychology Alevel got an A!

My way was to go over class content every lesson and i wrote in coloured notes so that it's be easier for me to revise.
Thankfully i have a good memory. So every lesson I'd go home and read over the content and say it out to myself many times until i could recall it by memory.
Then whenever i was free I'd go over what i learnt again and again so I didn't forget it.

Also we had the AQA psychology textbooks in which I made PEEL plans for every 16 marker (yet It was tedious but it was all worth it!) And i got the 16 markers double checked by my teacher and then I'd just memorize them. That way i knew I was prepared for any 16 marker I could potentially be asked.

Also near the exams time I did plenty of past papers and any mistakes I made i rewrote in different coloured pens. So i knew where my weaknesses were.

I really hope this helps

All the best with your studies, if you have any more questions feel free to pm me

Hmmm that's difficult!!

I would spend more time on the subject you are the weakest with
For me psychology was my strongest subject.

But try making a revision timetable, see if that helps.

Try prioritising the subjects you are the most weak at and are not getting the grades you want in. But that doesn't mean to say you should completely abandon your strongest subjects. Go over your notes from class regularly.

Sorry, I couldn't be of more help.

I’ve legit been in the same boat with year 1 content what i find helpful is using notes or the revision guide [which i highly recommend imo] to complete a brief essay plan and complete the essay later on in the day with minimal reference to the essay plan.
Doesn’t work for all but it does for me! Good luck!
