Hi!

I'm thinking about teaching myself psychology A level using AQA but i have no idea where to start with reading materials or even how to go about doing it. I was wondering if anyone had self-taught and could give me a bit of guidance/ advice?

Thanks

I was going to post the exact same subject; rather than repeating this post I was hoping a second plea on here might be more effective. I am hoping to do A level Psychology also through self studying. If anyone can give advice or information on books I would really appreciate this. Thanks

Hi, I'm home learning psychology and sociology so can give you some advice!

Which home learning programme will you be studying with, if any?! I was studying with ICS and 100% would not recommend them.

- First of all I would say make sure you have the correct resources: books, websites etc. I know this sounds obvious but I had to re take some exams due to not covering enough detail on the topics.
- Which specification will you study? A or B? Once you know, make sure you get a copy of the specification, as you don't need to cover everything. (This was another thing I did wrong, I was trying to learn everything and wasted a lot of time).
- Set out times that you are going to study and stick to them! It's soo easy to lose motivation, even if it's a subject you're interested in.
- Get past papers, mark schemes etc printed off. I know it sounds early but it's good to look at how questions are asked and what's expected of you.

Here's some websites that I've found useful:
http://www.getrevising.co.uk
http://www.psychlotron.org.uk
http://www.resourcd.com/@psychexchange/
This website! Look through past threads . Also there are various revision blogs etc which can be found through google , I don't have the link to them.

I hope this has helped a little. Good luck!

Hi, i am currently at college, ive been at college since September 2013. if im honest im not enjoying it. I'm thinking of teaching myself. I was going to use the exam board that my current college uses.

Psychology- OCR
Law- OCR
Religious studies- AQA
Government and politics- Edexcel

I could use my own resources and some of the resources on my college's moodle page. what i am worried about though is that, my college could be arsey about it.. I was wondering if i'd be able to st my exams at my college, as its not so far away. ive heard about some 'center's' but they're all miles away from me. if i spoke to college, could i potentially come to an agreement or should i be prepared to be told where the door is?
