AQA have announced a new look answer booklet (see example here). It is essentially similar to the older-style ones, just with lines, though there are special spaces to insert the number of the question being answered. This is just for the A2 papers.

AQA have recently clarified the way that AO1 and AO2 will be represented on the Unit 4 exam paper. It says on the website:
General point regarding exam papers – Unit 4 (PSYA4) January 2010 onwards
Questions that assess a combination of AO1 and AO2/AO3 skills will have the breakdown of assessment objectives indicated on the exam paper.For example:
- Outline clinical characteristics of one anxiety disorder. (5 marks)
- Explain issues associated with classification and diagnosis of anxiety disorders. (10 marks)
- Outline and evaluate one or more explanations of the anxiety disorder outlined in your answer to question 1(a). Refer to research evidence in your answer. (4 marks + 6 marks)
Not sure what will happen on Unit 3??
I have assembled the latest statistics from all the Psychology exam boards showing the percentage passes for the June 2008 and June 2009 series. This document can be accessed here. You can view the JCQ statistics for all A levels here.Makes interesting reading … certainly challenges some of the assumptions teachers make about which boards are easiest – though to some extent this is influenced by the kind of students directed at the different boards.Any comments?
