A-level psychology check it questionsWatch
In my textbook (green/pink-haired girl aqa one) there are check it questions at the end of each sub-topic, they seem to ask questions on everything that was covered in that subtopic (e.g there's a topic on coding, capacity and duration of memory. the questions asked are about the duration of STM, coding of LTM, a research study of duration of LTM and a 16 marker, outline and evaluate the research related to the features of STM so that's the whole sub-topic covered in question formate) if I did every one of those check it questions for each sub-topic (using my textbook for help lol) and asked my teacher to mark the 16 markers (to make sure my answer is actually good) then use that as my 'revision guide' and repeat the questions until I remember the answers without a textbook (then do exam papers to work on application). Would that be a good method as for my other mocks all I did was copy the textbook and write notes?
Oh and for the 16 markers, if my teacher says they're good, I can condense them into essay plans so its a bit less to remember.
Yes yes yes!! I mentor some GCSE students in revision and exam techniques because I want to be a teacher (in psych) and what you want to do is ACTIVE REVISION!! Answering practice questions on that is active revision, so is making essay plans, mind maps, revision cards (with condensed notes), quizzing yourself and others, etc. Avoid passive revision ! This is just reading notes or copying them word for word. I'm sure those methods you have mentioned will help you a lot in getting those top grades good luck!
