time allocation for psych exam

With the new psych exam structure (and unchanged writing time :(), what do you guys think is the best way to allocate your time for all the section? And do you think that it's actually possible to do the 3 sections entirely and still have enough time to check over answers?

depends how long you take on the ERA and short answer questions
A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

Did ATAR get banned? Usually he answers Psych questions within 32 seconds.

EDIT: My suspicions have been confirmed. Somehow his respect jumped from -20 to -11 to -16 to -20 in a matter of weeks. Impressive.

I'm gonna spend most of the reading time planning the 10 mark response in my head so when I get to it, I'll be able to have a good idea about what to write without desperately trying to think.

They can test you on anything from unit 3, so ANY aos (I know it really is so broad..). Therefore we'll have to decide what they want us to elaborate on regarding the topic.
E.g Illustrate how the temporal lobe affects daily life, providing examples.
So they're basically forcing you to study the crap out of the study design, so if you don't know anything regarding the 10 mark question you're done for. But then again if you know your stuff - you're all set for a good 10 marks
