To revise Psychology, you want to start with the basics with a NAPFCC way of learning them. N= Name, A= Aim, P= Procedure, F= Findings, C= Conclusion and C= Comment. The most important information is the findings and conclusion (obviously, the name is mainly important to link with these for the exam), you will need a basic overview of the procedure (eg: a lab experiment with "these controls" and it was carried out over 2 hours where they had to fill out two standardised questionnaires) and the aim and comment are the last points to cover, the comment is basically summing it up (for example: Freud may use the psychodynamic perspecitve to highlight that there are three levels of the human mind). Sorry if you don't do Freud, he's just a well known Psychologist. 

If you are doing AS, I know for OCR you need to know the studies in a lot of detail, but NAPFCC is always a good starting point just to try and make it seem a little less daunting. I hope this helps and if you need anything - you can contact me :-)

make 24 marks essays, or 12marks if its AS, get your teacher to mark them, improve them, and memorise. definitely the best way tbh

I do as ocr psychology, at the minute i'm revising the core studies and writing indepth details of all the 15 studies into a new a4 pad, after this i will make flash cards with basic sentences on so when i read the sentences hopefully i'll be able to explain in more depth. As well as the flash cards i'll be answering past papers which i'll give in to my teacher to mark so i know exactly where i am going wrong and hopefully will be able to improve by the time the exam comes around.
