More course information

Psychology is the study of human behaviour and uses scientific methods to observe, analyse and explain differences and patterns in our behaviour. It is a scientific subject and as such requires you to have scientific skills as well as good mathematical skills in order to be able to analyse data and carry out statistical calculations. In Psychology A level you will study topics such as Memory (which involves evaluating different explanations of how our memory works and how accurate memory actually is), Attachment (looking at how and why children form bonds with their caregivers as well as what happens to children who donƒ??t form attachments) and Social Influence (considering how
easily influenced we are by others and how our behaviour is shaped by the desire to be obedient and conform).
The skills you will be encouraged to develop through studying Psychology include critical thinking, evaluation and independent learning. You will also have a lot of practice at developing your essay writing skills. The Psychology course is entirely exam-based and you will have to write a lot of essays! In class we will do a variety of different activities to cater to different learning styles. Sometimes you will be working individually, sometimes in pairs and sometimes in groups. You may be required to do presentations and teach information you have learnt to other members of the class.
