Oh hey! Really happy I found this because I feel so alone with psychology since there are hardly any resources online and when I say I do psychology to friends from other schools they go: "I thought psychology was an A level." :rolleyes:

How is revision going? Pretty good. I've got flashcards for all the issues and debates and case studies but I'm doing key term flashcards next weekend.

How prepared are you right now? 50/50. Not really the best at psychology so I'm sort of nervous, but I think I'm on track to get good grades.

What is your Wanted grade/Predicted grade? I got a 3 on my mocks (oops), although the grade boundaries were extremely high so I'd say 30% of the class got a 3 (I don't think they'll be that high for the real thing). I'm aiming for a 5 or a 6 but I'd be okay with a pass too.

Good you got the flashcards ready! I've made flashcards on all of the paper 1 topics apart from the key studies and the issues and debates.

I'm feeling pretty nervous but idk why since I've been getting good grades in all my tests so far but those only had like two topics each. It's going to be a lot different in the real thing since we got to revise for 5 topics

Grade boundary predictions? My teacher uses 91% for a 9 which is rather demotivating.

It was actually ok but that morality question got me. Also, the amount of time was unreasonable for the amount we were given in my opinion.
