i would focus on the new specification but create 16 marker essay plans for each topic and then memorise them

Honestly sounds like you're absolutely set, I'm going through like flashcards and practice questions and it's so slow going still
Gender, schizophrenia and forensic psychology! I was so lucky, cause I'm an independent student I got to pick my own topics
Also psych boost is an absolute lifesaver

Hey!
I got a C from my CAGs cos I've had medical problems which have affected my previous performance in mocks, but hoping to get a B so I can go and get my offer from UCL (provided I get my A in history too!). My paper 3 is Gender, Schizophrenia and Aggression. Does anyone have any ways to remember numbers as I seem to struggle remembering statistics for studies but have no problem remembering what the studies are and the findings descriptively?

Our teacher focused on it so much as last year the students complained that it was very focused on them even in the other sections of the paper

Don’t worry, we didn’t finish gender so I’m panicking, plus I missed a lot of Social Influence teaching on top of not having a teacher to teach it due to shared parental leave

Does anyone have a list of all the key studies for papers 1 and 2 that I could use to check off ones?? I’ve found a new evaluation mnemonic so I’m doing a table with that and outlines of each study (I’ve done social influence)

i got a B last year in 2019 (resitting now to get an A/A*) but i wouldn't suggest using GRAVE unless you're really desperate and can't remember the actual evaluation for each topic. aim for 3 evaluation per subtopic x

I use REVISED, not GRAVE for that reason but I seem to do better applying RM and I&D. I tend to remember applications as well but it’s the theories and bio which I cannot get the evaluation to stick
Love how my teacher told me 4-5 evaluation and EVERYONE says 3 x
