I'm in second year and doing AQA a level psychology. As exams are nearing I begin to stress quite a bit since I want get an A for my exam :^). I would really appreciate if you guys could help me to get the most of my revision. So here are some questions:

What was the most helpful revision technique? What was the thing you feel you just wasted your time on?

Did flash cards for the theory help you perform better in the exams or you think I can spend my time on different things?

When it comes to essay questions, what really helped you get the marks in essay based question? Is it better to just do as many essay questions as you can or focus on imitating model answers?

And in general, what was the specific thing that you feel you didn't do enough and what were the questions you struggled the most in the exam?

Thank you for your help in advance. 😊

Practice many past papers. Be weary of the mark scheme because for my board (Edexcel) they can only award marks within the set boundaries, e.g. if it is a 8-mark question about evaluating a study, 4 marks get given for AO1 and 4 marks get given for AO3. Not 5 to 3 or 6 to 3.

Make sure to always link your point with sufficient explanation, relating it to the context and providing evidence.

Got Psychology exams soon as well, just want to get them out of the way so I can focus on harder subjects.
