    Is psychology seen as a science subject? Personally i dont see the interest in psychology but it looks as though my thoughts of the subject are in the minority.

    I don't have an interest in psychology either, but I can see why some people would find it appealing. And I don't think it's classified as science...

    Psychology is only an option at our school through a college link system, so it's not so popular here, infact I doubt even 5 have taken it. I think English has had a lot of popularity as well as maths.

    Same, no appeal to me either. I believe it's classified as an "Art". Not too sure it could go in any category except "Drab", really. :p:

    Psychology is a "Social Science" similar to Economics, History etc even though its experimental. Its got a reputation of being a girls' subject whereas Economics and History are the more "masculine" subjects (or so I'm told).

    Well I know nobody asked for it, but I'll add my two cents in anyway:

    Personally, I hate Pyschology as much as I hate Justin Timberlake which is a lot and 50 Cent which is again a lot, give me a gun and I can finish the job, I'll get lucky on the tenth time. I even hate it more than I hate Russell Crowe, yes I know he was Gladiator but the guy is a maniac. Back on topic, I could go on and on about things I hate; it is actually quite an interesting subject and learning about the human pysche can be fun, I looked at some of the Past papers on the AQA site and it's not half-bad, but I still hate it from the bottom of my ventricles to the top of my oracles =)

    Well to put it in a clearer context:

    Pyschology = a good subject = which I hate more than some famous celebrities.

    Chemistry is by far the most popular AS subject at my school. Probably about 2/3 of my year are going to do it. It's because obviously all the people wanting to do the sciences do it, and all the artsy people who want a science to show some variety seem to pick it as well. My school has quite a good Chemistry department too.

    Psychology studied at A Level isn't a science. It can be at uni though (eg experimental psychology).

    Psychology is the most interesting thing in the world. Understanding how peoples mind works and waht gives them motivation and how things affect you later on. WOW. At a level, its a social science but most unis class it as science at degree level because it becomes very biological.

    P.s, i want to be a pyschologist lol.
