My revsion is just 16 markers for every single topic. This way I think it will get into my head and I will read content for 15 minutes then write a 16 marker and see what I remember... Good/No?

Not the best idea. Good essay technique is worth about 30% of the marks in 16 markers. The rest is content. You can’t predict what’s going to come up on the 16 markers and the revision process for content can’t just be around 16 markers.
To revise content, concentrate on revising what you don’t know rather than what you do.
Read through your notes.
Write new ones as you go. Then put aside.
Recall everything you can.
Revise what you couldn’t.
Repeat your recall. Repeat revision as necessary. When you’re at about 90% recall, move on to your next topic.

Keep your revision topped up and refreshed by reviewing every couple of days. In the mean time, concentrate on refining your essay techniques.

Her revision technique is actually not bad. It's called ''vomit learning" and it's really effective. I agree she needs to practise other questions. But I think she just kinda means that once she revised a topic, she writes everything down from memory. I've done this and I have been getting A*s

i don't think this is effective tbh. psychology is very content heavy and you need to focus a lot of your time memorising the content. planning a few 16 markers is good and making sure you know how to structure your questions but you need to go through your notes and memorise!!!

Yep same, just doing exam questions now. What I recommend is read your notes, close the book and write very thing down from memory. Only do it for the topics you struggle to remember otherwise that's just long. Make the you do past papers and practice questions. I read about this technique in a book called "How to get an A* at A level" or something. The author of the book referred to it as the scribble technique and he got A*s in all his subjects.

No it's basically what you're doing. Writing everything down from what you can remember. I'm doing the method I told you lol and just doing questions from my revision guide. Starting past papers on Wednesday.
