If you're evaluating case studies then GRAVE really helps for me.
Generalisability
Reliability
Application (to the wider world)
Validity- ecological validity, task validity, etc.
Ethics
And then just write an Ao1 and Ao3 point for each. If you need an example then just ask.

If you're evaluating theories then SCOUTS helped with that.
Supporting evidence
Conflicting evidence
Other theories
Usefulness
Testability
Simplicity
And then write an Ao1 and Ao3 point for each.

We were always taught to write paragraphs with a top, evidence and a tail and I'd try to remember a key word for each and write them on a flashcard

For example (bold words are what I'd write on the flashcard:

One strength of the SLT is that it is supported by research evidence, for example the Bobo doll study. Bandura found that children who observed aggressive adults were more likely to display aggression towards the bobo doll compared to children who watched an adult playing in a non-aggressive manner. This supports the idea the individuals learn behaviour through vicarious reinforcement and imitating the behaviours of role models and, like the behaviourist approach, supports the nurture debate.

Hope this helps

You'll find a lot of them are repeated, especially for things like the attachment topic (a few case studies can be applied in many cases) or approaches in which you're often addressing the same points (deterministic/free will, reductionism/holism, research methods, etc.).

When you're making your notes, don't write long sentences. Use keywords to trigger a whole host of memories. I have a thread on it here if you'd ever want.
