Revising for AS Psychology - March 14th 2014, 12:03 AM

My exam is in 9 weeks, is it a bit silly to start revising now? I haven't really got much else going on right now so I'm thinking I may as well. Problem is, I'm an AWFUL procrastinator. I'll say to myself I will revise at 6pm or whatever and instead watch crap on youtube, play on my tablet/DS or post on forums. How could I force myself? I really should be doing something now but ironically I'm posting a thread about it

I just really want to do well this time. I somehow got a C in GCSE Psychology last year (which isn't fantastic, I know, but at least I passed) with little revision (in my defence I was depressed and my anxiety was awful last year) I've been having B's and even A's in homework I've actually tried in so I know I'm capable of doing well.

I just have to remember SO much. I actually broke a large folder jamming it full of booklets.

When I took AS Psychology my college tutor always suggested that we revise alongside our current studies. Constantly going over the notes as well as testing ourselves to reinforce the information to help it stick. What I found to be useful was the section on Memory because it showed ways of remembering harder-to-learn things or things that could easily be confused with such as the meaning of IV and DV, which often people tend to get mixed up. Using acronyms etc was really useful and was great during revision.

I found it hard to revise too so I'd always do it during college hours more often than not because it meant I had little to no distractions that I'd find at home such as my computer, my Xbox 360 and such. I also found it a lot better to not try and plan my revision times because then I'd end up thinking about it, dwelling on it and ended up never doing it so I'd just be spontaneous and go do it at a random moment without thinking about it.

I always remember IV's and DV's for some reason, IV is the cause and DV is the affect. My problem is remembering people's names. I can remember the name Milgram right now but I can't remember what he done :')

I may just start doing it on a whim too. Or I may start making to do lists like my sister (who has a creepy obsession with lists )
