Hi all,

I am looking into exampro for AQA psychology, and I have signed up for the demo.  There are only 13 questions available, but on the home page it says there are 600+.  Is this a restriction while on the demo only?  I don't want to pay for it and discover there are, in fact, only 13 questions!

Thanks!

That would be on the demo. I've not found it that useful as it only contains the SAMS (and 2016?? I think) questions. They have added a few from the old spec, but they are only of marginal relevance and use. I know some people love it and I can see that you can put together tests quite quickly. But, if you just wanted more questions I wouldn't bother. No doubt it will get better as more exam questions are added as these exams are sat.

ExamPro has been my lifesaver this year! It has last year's AS questions on as well as all the specimen questions. It is great for tests and revision as its gives you the markschemes. Also I used it to create a 'unique' end of year test for Y12 students so that they couldn't 'cheat' by accessing the third set of supposedly secure questions. Really recommend.

I love Exampro too. It has made life so much easier to put together assessments, and mark schemes. It would be good if there were more examiners remarks etc. but well worth the money.

I made exam revision packs by topics for our students which they loved with mark schemes, especially because they are used to this at GCSE level. It helped with assessments to a point overall excellent value for money and fairly easy to use.

I loved ExamPro for AS level. Do they do it for GCSE psy?

Thank you all for the replies; the feedback helped us decide and we're now the proud owners of a year's subscription for ExamPro. It's excellent, and does contain more questions than were suggested by the demo (683 I believe). Used it for an end of unit test already.

On the topic of legacy spec questions - there are some but many have been updated with information about probable marking in the new spec exams.

Love exam pro, I made topic revision packs with it rather than exam questions as judging the overall difficulty of a range of questions and using grade boundaries didn't seem too valid compared to real exam papers and grade boundaries, though its great once you get the hang of it.

Hi

Would any of you who currently have ExamPro be able to confirm that it has all the exam paper questions from 2009?–?2016? The website says this but I am a bit unclear from what has been said on this forum. Thanks!

Only the ones relevant to the new spec from pre2015, but that is a lot!
