i know people always tell you what you do in psycology in as and A level but can someone tell me specificly what you can learn and how this can benefit someone?i am thinking about doing it but i am wondering if its just a "common sense" subject?
it is no way common sense. it is roughly the same difficulty as biology. you have to learn vaious experiments based on psychological topics and write about them in an exam. Its difficult to blag. if you dont like writing then dont do it, also if you dont like ststistics.
Hiya. I would definitely recommend doing psychology. I started off just doing it because I wanted a fourth subject I hadnt done before and now i have applied to do it at university. its great. The alevel involves a lot of looking at experiments other people have done and learning about different theories for certain behaviours. Its not just a common sense subject id say that was more sociology(well at my school anyway - sorry if ive offended any sociology lovers!) Anyway good luck if you do decide to take it x x x
Its just as challenging as maths, if not more.
MUCH more revision is required if you want to do well.
oh right thats kinda just put me of as im lazy! could you tell me what kind of things you study in psycology please?
Mind you syaing that its a hard subject i didnt revise alot last year and still got an A. I think if you have an interest in the subject - watch relevant programmes on tv, read articles etc- and you have good teachers its quite easy to do well.
I'm taking it, and some of it is common sense.
But some of it is very interesting, as long as the teacher isn't really boring like one of mine is!!!
AS Psychology is definatly a LOT easier than A2 in terms of the amout of stuff you have to learn and understand, the complexity of the stuff and the amount of analysis needed. At A2 there are no more "describe a study......" questions. I was suprised by the jump. To be honest I didn't find AS hard at all but A2 is.
