Psychology

Exam Board - AQA

Introduction

Psychology is taught by teachers within the health and social care department and currently offered to post-16 students as an A level.

Sixth Form

This is a two year A level course which broadly divides into two sections: compulsory content which looks at the various strands of psychology such as research methods, social psychology, and psychopathology. There are also specialised units such as eating behaviour, gender and forensic psychology. This course is wholly assessed through examination. 

There will be three two hour papers at the end of the course (each worth 33.3% of the A level).
