Hey everyone,

In May of 2019 I took the AS Level Cambridge Psychology 9990 exam as a private candidate and managed to get an A.

It was not easy for me and that is why I decided to write a blog post about how I did it in detail and include a lot of tips that could help anyone of you taking the exam.

Here's the link: https://passportaroundmyworld.wordpr...ychology-tips/

I only started studying in January and then took the exam in May, so it is definitely doable in that time frame. However, if you can start now and space out your repetition, I'm sure you can do even better than I did

The most efficient way to revise depends heavily on the type of learner that you are. I'm a visual/kinesthetic learner so the best way for me was to read the textbook and original studies, make notes from them, rewrite my notes at regular intervals based on memory and then check my original notes to see what information I had forgotten and focused on that, as well as using flashcards for some of it.

No problem

I'm doing CIE (Cambridge) But most of the tips I have included can be applied to other boards as well as some other subjects.
