Paper 3 solely because there was 3 16 markers and quite a few 8 markers so I didn't have enough time

Paper 2, i loved the higher mark questions but I’m worried that I made a couple errors in the shorter questions and that it will add up and make a big difference paper 1 was a blessing and paper 3 was pretty good too

Honestly thought Paper 1 was the weakest for me. Sure, the multi-store model was great, but the 8 marker on social influence was weird, the entire attachment section was ugly, and the neural explanations of OCD was very unexpected. Paper 2 had a relatively nice biopsy section with that essay, and the design a study question was welcome. With Paper 3, there were no really unexpected surprises, and some of the questions that showed up were almost identical to the ones my school sat as a mock in January, so like a good quarter of this exam was a repeat of what occurred there.

AQA appear to have a habit of doing 6 spread across all the papers, so seeing 3 of them on Paper 3 wasn't surprising. I think they were all pretty solid aside from the Attachment one, easily the weakest essay I've ever done. Multi-Store Model was great, lateralisation fascinates me so remembering that took no effort, nature-nurture was in one of the mocks I sat so it was pretty much a repeat of that, predicted the relationships essay and got down all my points there, and while I didn't fully develop the schizophrenia one, I had a better idea than the attachment one about what I was talking about. So yeah, overall, think it went quite well. Can't wait to get to studying this subject without having to worry about balance with the others!
