How are you feeling about these exams? Do you feel prepared? What have you started doing to prepare for your exams? Comment down below!


How to prepare for the exams (general tips)


1. Create revision resources, whatever they may be it needs to be what works for you. If writing out notes over and over doesn't work for you, please don't waste your time!

2. Use the revision guide to make your notes, the copy from the exam board is your best bet - rather than using copies from other sources.

3. Create a revision timetable if this works for you.

4. Re-read your notes, repetition is the best method of drilling notes into your brain.

5. As it gets closer to the exams complete past papers. The more the better in the end!

I can create a Psychology group with all of us? Since it seems the other one is full/admin not responding. PM me with your number if you want to do this
Please don't share your personal numbers on here. This group is for everything that you need to chat about the up and coming exam

I did the paper 3 mock just before Christmas, got a B (4 marks off an A).
Pretty decent considering my circumstances (dad was admitted into hospital the week before the exam and only got out a day or two before and was seeing him twice every day after sixthform and in the evenings so I only had a week and a bit to compeletely revise)

Yes I have done my mock for psychology and it was the 2019 paper 1. A lot of us thought it was harder than ones we had done previously. We will just have to wait on the results

did mine before Christmas been getting B's since my first ever exam in year 12 and I got a D this time. Really gutted but its a wake-up call I guess. We had the 2019 paper for our mock. Have our next mocks in march so hopefully, I get back on track.

I feel like I get psychology because it's interesting but then tend to slack off. Then when the exam comes round I have to remember 100 evaluation points and 50 researcher names. & I always lose marks by not linking back ugh

There is a lot of evaluation but for a lot of studies you can use the same points so for example if it’s a lab study then it’s well controlled and the researcher can make sure there are no confounding variables but it lacks realism because it’s artificial which decreases the external validity as you can’t generalise it to real life situations

Honestly my main concern is remembering all the studies.
There's so many studies that are classed as AO1 as it is, and then going into AO3 with outcome studies / research support studies, along with all the statistics and percentages for attachment, memory and SI... it's blowing my mind away haha.
