PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP! I chose Psychology A-Level as it was between that and biology and after a discussion with my GCSE biology teacher, I decided to take psychology but its my hardest A-Level. No matter how hard I try or study I can't get above 50%. I've tried everything. tutors, past papers, flash cards, mind maps, youtube videos but it just not sinking in. All my other A-levels are fine but its just psychology I can't grasp.

I'm not sure if you're saying that you don't understand the concepts or you just can't remember them. If it's the latter I've found the best method is a thing called blurting which is active revision where you write down everything you can on a specific topic without looking at notes, then fill in any bits you missed afterwards from your notes. You basically repeat this over and over (I find it normally takes about 4 rounds of this) until it sinks in
