Edexcel Psychology Unit 3 Applications choices/combinations

Badges: 6
Report Thread starter 6 years ago

I was wondering somebody knew concerning Unit 3 choices and if any combination of the applications covered in Unit 3 can be taken or they have to be done in the format/way of either the first two together, Criminological and Child Psychology, or or the latter two together, Health/Substance and Sport Psychology.

The reason I ask this because the learning guides,or most/some of them, come in pairs/groups. For example ; Edexcel A2 Psychology Student Unit Guide Unit 3: Health and Sport Psychology , or, Edexcel A2 Psychology Student Unit Guide: Unit 3 Criminological and Child Psychology . I am unable to get he hyperlink to work, but for example, the link/s are http://www.amazon.co.uk/Edexcel-Psyc...y+unit+3+guide .
I am also a private candidate for the exam/s.

I would appreciate it if somebody who knows about such and such or is teaching it or studying it and has access to information/teacher could find out/inform me about the above.

Thank you in advance.

Hey there,

I had actually had this discussion with my Psychology teacher (currently doing A2 Edexcel Psychology) and she had stated that any combination of the four available applications can be selected for Unit 3 - there isn't any set format. In addition to this, I've spoken to quite a few people who have done Criminological and Health/Substance Misuse together; therefore not following the specific format you've listed.

Though from what I have noticed, Crimological & Child Psychology seem to be the ones that candidates usually do (my school is doing this combination), especially since there seem to be more online resources for these two applications as well. When searching I don't seem to come across much that covers Health/Substance Misuse and Sport Psychology.

I hope this helps c:
