If you love working with statistics and interpreting data, then Psychology is the A-Level for you. During this fascinating subject, we'll teach you the scientific methods used by psychologists and help you develop techniques for collecting and analysing data.
During the next two years, you will develop an understanding of the scientific methods used by psychologists. You will learn the four key techniques for collecting and analysing data, self-report, experiment, observation and correlation. We will also teach you the five main approaches in Psychology.
Psychology is based on empirical evidence, so a love for looking at data, researching, and problem-solving means you will do well in this subject. Over the two years you will study:
Plus one from each subsection:
A GCSE grade 5 in English Language, grade 5 in Maths and grade 5 in Science.
There are three exams at the end of the second year. The exams are two hours long, and are each worth 33.3% of the A-Level.
At the end of year two you will achieve Psychology A Level.
Once you have finished this course, you can go on to study related subjects at university. This subject combines well with other university courses such as teaching, nursing, medicine, criminology.
You will need to buy the recommended course text book and pay towards additional support materials. There may be additional costs for trips and conferences but these are voluntary.
