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 :smile:

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.
