How to Answer Questions (Psychology AQA GCE)

How to Answer Questions (Psychology AQA GCE)

Here is a booklet I give all my students on how to answer exam questions, it applies to all Psychology papers not just paper 1 etc. It is very useful for developing exam confidence and exam technique. It gives an easy format for questions that makes achieving the highest band of marks easily accessible. It explains the Assessment Objectives and has a list of command words and tells the student what is expected for each. It tells the students how to write in the extended essay questions and more importantly evaluation as the more I teach I always find that my students struggle mostly with the evaluation in Psychology. It also helps with the mathematic aspect of the paper - I also recommend my Research Methods booklet for this, it is very detailed and may seem long but it covers ALL of Research Methods and helps students to understand in an easy way and is very good for Independant Study.
