Any cramming techniques are welcome. Does anyone know any all-encompassing AO3 that I can use? Any case studies that crossover so I don't need to revise as many case studies? I desperately need a B so that I can get a confirmed place for Exeter uni next year.

If this is for A level your in the same boat as me and a load of others. Boundaries should be low as literally no one spent there quarentine revising lmao. Crunch hard and try your best. If this is for spychology Revise case studies through pictures; trust me case studies aren't even that important and really only serve as evidence for any theories etc/

Hey just a question, my school has made literally no mention of mocks yet, its a rather poor school academically and im worried they will try avoid mocks to hide the poor results, can they do this? or will i definitely have mocks? (To make it clear i really want mocks to happen )

I did my mocks in February and I still have no idea how I did so you're not alone

are you going into year 13/year 12? mocks don't have an effect on a school's results at all so it'd be a bit weird if they had none

Going into year 13, I’ve specifically asked if we will have mocks and they have said they are not sure, it just doesn’t seem fair on those who prepare and benefit from them

7 weeks is a hella lot of time. If you’re organised, make a study plan and stick to it, u can achieve whatever u want (and have worked for). Tbh now I’m just wondering: why stick to a B? Aim for the A*!! Go get em🔥

IMO it is 100% possible, at the end of y10 I was getting 3s-4s then I started studying religiously on August the 29th last year and in my mocks that were in November, I achieved loads of level 7s so you can do it you just need to have the ambition to do it!

Good luck!

I think 7 weeks are more than enough but depends on the number of hours you actually spend studying each day. Come up with a proper timetable as to how many hours you will allocate to study. Use mnemonics like come up with acronyms and similar techniques to remember complicated terms. Time and work on past papers as questions repeat and you will master on writing answers. Make sure to mark and grade the past papers you have done as this allows you to learn from your mistakes and also understand what the examiner expects from you.SLEEP is important make sure to sleep at least 6 hours a day as sleep allows the process of memory consolidation. If there are any revision guides use them more instead of textbooks. And for crossover case studies look in the marking schemes on studies that are repeated.
GOOD LUCK WITH EVERYTHING!
