Hi all,

I'm with AQA
I struggle most with remembering all the approaches (they all just merge into each other in my head), and also the minority influence in social influence which includes all of the small steps that minorities influence the majority.
I really enjoy debating stuff when it comes to evaluations, especially in the Gender topic.
Hey everyone, just to let you know I've merged two threads together here :smile:

wow what are your psych revision tips? also, are you an early applicant?
Hi everyone. I actually finished year 13 and received my results in August. I did Law, Spanish and Politics. For Law and Spanish (OCR and AQA) I had never gotten anything below an A*/A and ended up with B’s so decided to resit those two. Politics I never enjoyed so got rid of it and now I’m attempting to do a fast track for A level psychology (AQA) in a year. I know it’ll be challenging but I’m determined. I’m aiming for an A (and A* in the other two). I’m self studying from home, haven’t found an amazingggg tutor to help me out and no colleges near me offer this fast track option…

I would greatly appreciate any advice anyone may have, have a nice day!!

my favourite part so far has been social influence bc i think im most interested in social psychology the most plus the studies were interesting

Hi again! My name's Livi, I'm originally from Slovakia but live in the UK now, I'm studying psychology, maths, further maths, and computer science for A-Level!
I'm hoping for at least a B in further maths, and then As or A*s in the rest!
The latest show I watched was The end of the f***ing world on Netflix, and I don't really have a motivational quote.
