    Hey, congrats! I'm an honours graduate in psychology and I would recommend reading up on:

    Conditioning
    Obedience
    Stanford Prison Experiment
    Baby Albert
    Freud (in general)
    Bobo Doll Experiment
    Attachment Theory
    Nature Versus Nurture

    Bare in mind though when you begin first year they assume you have no prior knowledge. So anything you do know is just a benefit to yourself. But these are the main topics/areas I'd suggest having a look at if you're interested and have some time on your hands

    First year psychology is typically a mix of research methods, statistics, cognitive psych (e.g. memory, language, attention), biological psych, learning theory and mental health

    Don't panic as I guarantee that you won't be far behind. More people than you'd probably expect will be starting the degree with no previous knowledge. What you will be taught will vary greatly between the unis so I wouldn't worry too much before hand. As long as you are willing to learn you'll pick it all up

    I studied psychology before I started my degree and those who had no previous knowledge actually found it easier! (You can be taught many bad habbits/too simple versions of things at A level psychology)
