Currently, I am in Year 12 and I am doing A level psychology. My mocks are coming up and I was wondering whether I will do AS or A-level mock papers of everything we learnt so far including memory, attachment, psychopathology and some research methods

AS just covers the first half of the A level course so makes sense to do at the end of Year 12

AS paper 1 only has memory, attachment, and social influence
Paper 2 approaches which we haven't done, psychopathology and research methods.

Would it mostly likely be 2019 or 2020?

Would like to put the two together?

I really don’t see how it matters. Just do as many past paper questions that you can and revise all the content you have learnt. Your teachers will not put a question with content that you have not learnt.

Are you in y12 or 13?
A level paper 1 has all the topics we learnt this year

I tried emailing them and no one has replied and we are off timetable because of mocks so I cant ask them

AS exams make sense if you've covered the content of it, but if you haven't been doing AS in Y12 and the rest of the A level content in Y13 it makes less sense. They can pick what they like - a mix of questions from AS and/or A level papers form as many years as they want. I suggest you just revise and see what comes up

So we are most likely to be doing A-level?

We were told a level, you might be doing an alevel paper with AS content tho because that includes 16 markers and that’s what a lot of schools do so just revise everything in varying time conditions
