About the Book

This exam companion provides students with the understanding they need to approach the AQA-A AS Level Psychology exam with confidence. Full of expert advice to help students achieve their best, the companion provides:

  • A range of example exam questions, which cover all of the topics on the specification
  • A set of model answers to these questions
  • Examiner advice which highlights key mistakes that can be made
  • Advice on Assessment Objectives where relevant, to emphasise how the AO1, AO2, and AO3 skills are assessed.

A full range of short answer questions is also provided, including the new style Application of Knowledge and Research Methods questions. Written by an experienced teacher, author and examiner, the AS Psychology Exam Companion goes beyond revision notes to show the student exactly how the full range of exam questions can be approached.


"The clear structure of this book’s text is closely matched to the specification, making it easy for students to organise their revision." – Evie Bentley, Advisor for Psychology, West Sussex Adult and Community Learning, UK
