Mentoring in psychology currently takes the form of a buddy system with pairings between Year 12 and Year 13 students. Each group meets weekly or fortnightly, depending on their timetable commitments, to discuss the course and share resources. Year 13 students act as the lead by asking questions about topics from their previous year, though in doing so they are revisiting the content and it forms part of their revision, the Year 12 students therefore have another expert to review their lessons with and begin to compare and contrast the approaches. The buddy system aims to get students to share their folders, essay and exam feedback, catch up on missed work, develop revision materials and share further reading and research materials. Help is also available to all students during non contact time meetings with staff and guided revision towards exam seasons.
