I couldn't find good statistics on how the Psychology work is assessed. I know that coursework, presentations, or practical work may be involved, but what are the most likely things that I will be assessed by? E.g. 60% Coursework, 40% debate, etc.

Much appreciated.

Varies alot. Also varies depending on which year you are in. 3rd year dissertation will take up a sizable amount of marks (10-30% usually) then exams.First year multiple choice questions can occur at some unis. I personally just did 80% exams (all essay based) and 25% dissertations/coursework in my second & third year.

Out of curiosity; did you have to experience any presentations, I.e.- having to personally present something in front of audience?

Brilliant. Would you agree that the subject gets relatively 'immature' as it progresses? I.e- a lot of people have told me that they had to do a lot of posters for their Psychology PhD,etc, so have you noticed that it goes backwards the higher the level, I.e becoming less lenient over time?

Much appreciated.

I wouldn't really put it that way. You couldn't write a third year dissertation in first year as you simply don't have the skills. Presentation and poster skills are essential skills for lecturers (which a PhD is aimed at training you for) as well as in business. If anything it gets a lot harder as you progress....
