I’m afraid this takes practice practice and more practice! You need to learn what each question wants from you, for example a 16 marker requires 6 marks A01 and 10 marks A03 and you have roughly 15 or so minutes to write it, so you need to understand what’s relevant and what isn’t relevant when your writing your answer as you progress through psych you’ll master it. Take it from me I thought it was impossible but it takes time

Hello,
Although I'm not taking the A2 just yet, I'm currently studying psychology at AS with a predicted grade of A. I find that remembering the essential case studies AND some other studies when answering the essay questions can really help, especially in the evaluate style questions. when you answer questions such as outline and evaluate (insert topic), you could try to work in your evaluation into your outline paragraphs instead of doing 3 or 4 outline paragraphs and then 3 or 4 evaluate questions. this will also help if you are running out of time because it demonstrates that you have knowledge surrounding both A01 and A03 points.
Knowing key terms can really help in demonstrating your knowledge, and make sure that you have a good understanding of these terms and apply that to your answers
Furthermore, make sure for the essay style questions you are giving a brief introduction that smoothly guides the examiner into the subject you are writing about.
as far as revision goes, its worth to produce tables with all your essential case studies, and you can change the amount of info you include per case, for example, you may need to know the method AND findings for some cases as well as eval points, but you might only need to know the findings for others.
I hope this helped you!
