My Psychology Transfer exam is TOMORROW (Monday 14th May) and so I’ve been cracking down and revising, around being unwell! I thought now would be an appropriate time to share some of the things I have done and some of the revision materials I have been making and using. For reference, I do AQA A Level Psychology and I’m currently in Year One:
Study With Me
Although the exam is only recently fast approaching, I’ve been making and using revision materials all year round – of which I’m very thankful for! I’ve mainly been using my Whitelines Notebook, which I’m sure you’re sick of hearing about by now! I love using them for revision materials because it’s like you’re using plain paper but you have the lines to guide you! I like using my squared notebook for tables, diagrams and mindmaps. My A5 one is used for more ‘written’ notes. I use lots of colour to make them appealing and aesthetically pleasing to look at so that the information will hopefully stick in my head better! I enjoy making these revision materials and I believe that they make studying a bit more fun than just sitting and reading a textbook.
In addition to that, I’ve also being using an online flashcard program called Quizlet. I believe that I have mentioned it before! I’m going to do a full review on it after I’ve done my exam so that you can learn a little bit more about it! I particularly love the new ‘Learn’ mode, I think that it’s very clever and effective!
I’ve also been looking back over my in-class tests as well at looking at past/specimen papers (it’s a new specification). This is useful because you get to see exactly what kind of questions they’re going to ask you. I also always think that the more I look at the more likely I am to come across a repeat/similar question. I guess there’s only so much they can ask you!
Finally, I have been looking over my teacher’s PowerPoints which she kindly puts in her Onedrive for us to access. I’ve also used flashcards a bit, but probably not as much as I should. However, I have been doing some of the practise questions that I found in the textbook and the app that connects to the textbook!
I hope you enjoyed my post and I hope that I’ve given you a little bit of study motivation!! Don’t forget to check out my study instagram (@jess_studies_). I think that my favourite subject at the moment is actually Psychology – what’s yours?
Thanks for reading
