AQA A-Level Psychology, PREDICTED QUESTIONS for the examinations 2020 (all 3 papers) Five page document covering all three 2020 papers, with a copy of last year’s predictions (correct predictions highlighted) As usual the predictions last year where more than very good, perhaps awesome! Don’t be deceived by the price, this is a quality resource However, predictions are risky, so consider two points: These are presented as possible/probable questions and are suggestions for what your students should know well for the examination, but NOT to the exclusion of complete knowledge These are of more benefit for moderate to weak students, to help them focus revision I take no responsibility for the accuracy of the predictions and any reliance on my predictions is at your risk You are welcome to expand or revise my predictions and good luck to your students for the exams Thank You… Andy Mac CPsychol
