Examiner reports

AQA’s examiner reports are available for the January 2013 papers (together with the papers themselves) at:

The reports offer the usual excellent exam skills advice for students, and there is an especially useful section at the start of the Unit 2 report about command terms, answering the question asked and where and where not to write on the exam paper.

Another useful comment (this time from PSYA1, Q4):

┬á‘It was evident that students usually scored better marks where they outlined one or two research studies accurately and in reasonable detail, rather than when they outlined several studies less accurately’.
