So, who's doing A levels? - May 12th 2014, 11:47 PM

I have an AS Psychology exam tomorrow and I'm crapping myself :| I've been revising quite a lot but nothing really seems to sink in I'll remember it for like a minute and then it goes.

Really don't know how well this is going to go at all I have been reading 12 mark question predictions online and if they're accurate then I should be okay because they happen to be stuff I do somewhat remember.

Re: So, who's doing A levels? - May 13th 2014, 12:21 AM

When I was doing my AS Psychology exams last year I found this site really helpful because it breaks stuff down rather than having a wall of text for a text book.

I had to take Paper 1 again because the unfortunate happened and I failed it. Something I noticed was that Cross Cultural Variations came up on both papers (first time and retake) and the worst part was that it was the only section I hadn't revised for which cost me so many marks.

On Paper 2, Privation came up and so I wrote my exam essay on Genie and her dwarfism but it turned out it wasn't what the examiners wanted and were looking for the work on the Czech twins PM and JM due to the fact that although they were deprived as children, they had each other which allowed them to form an attachment with each other whereas Genie had no one.

One thing my psychology tutor also reminded us was that a big common mistake which costs students their marks is that when they come to write essays, they forget to use evaluative speak and to quote the studies of whom they're writing about such as "(Hodges and Tizard 1989)" and so on.

Before I went into the exam room I took it upon myself to whip out my iPod, connect to the college's internet and open up the link I gave above and bush up on some things here and there to give me a quick memory refresh on stuff I didn't feel as confident in, privation was one of them. The best part was, it ended up on the paper so I was thankful I'd quickly refreshed my memory.

All in all, try not to panic as much as it's hard not to, focus on your weakest areas and again, before you go into that exam room, make sure you have some notes on your iPod or whatever else. Sure they say "No mobile phones" but it doesn't say not to bring an iPod or something.

Thanks I have been using that site and I have found it helpful The paper wasn't too bad. The 12 mark question was VERY broad which I like It was just asking you to outline and evaluate studies about eye witness testimonies in general Only problem is I ran out of time >.> I didn't write as much as I wanted to on the 12 marker at all. I really should have asked for extra time because of my E.D.S. my wrist hurts after writing for a bit and I can't write very fast.

I hope something involving Genie comes up in paper 2, I actually remember a lot about her.
