Well basically I'm coming to the end year 10 where I will be completing three early GCSE's. Obviously, this will result in me having space on my school timetable. One of the options is to fill it with an AS level in year 11 and the one I would wish to pursue would be Psychology. I personally think the subject interests me but it wouldn't be a choice of mine in year 12 (as a result this would be my only opportunity to try the subject.)
My question is how have psychology students found the subject and how heavy do you find the workload? Also could you give me a small insight into what the course covers?
Of course I would be having the exam at the same time as my GCSE's but I would have 6 free periods a fortnight. Additionally, I'm predicted A*s in Science, Maths so hopefully the theory wouldn't be beyond my capabilities.
The only other option in year 11 for me is to take 3 enrichment courses which don't provide any qualification and out of the three courses none are too interesting. However, the workload would be significantly smaller.
Finally, in year 12 I would have the opportunity to complete the A level.
So what would you recommend that I do?
