  1. Hey I’m an A2 student and I’m having alot of problem in answering an 8 mark answer in section B paper 3. Can you please help me out as I’m not sure if we have to write all the details in part A or we just have to describe it briefly like a 1-2 page answer.
    Including all the details the answer is about 4 to 5 pages and that consumes alot of time.
    Please help me out😊

  2. Hi
    Many thanks for the resource! I am struggling writing the evaluation question of organization psychology and hard to relate it to any issues and debates…Do you have some other resources about organization that you would suggest?

  3. Hi
    Do you think you could put up the other three organization lessons as well? My exam is coming soon and I’m mainly self studying and this is the best resource I have. Do you have any other resources you could suggest?

    • Hi!

      Yes, a few people have asked for notes so I’ve promised to try to finish the last three chapters by the end of next week, hopefully. I’ll start uploading the chapters on Wednesday though, latest, because I’m not at home for the next few days.

      Thank you!
