I wanted to take Psychology, but I wanted to know how people are finding it so far at AS. Are there a lot of essays [does that depend on the board you do]? What do you learn about?

I'm on edexcel. The content is fairly straightforward, however there is lots to remember. There are a few 'essays' you have to write which involve you describing and evaluating studies and theories.
Hope this helps!

Same I do AQA A also. I found stress extremely boring, social influence was okay I guess. but we just started abnormality and I'm absolutely loving it!

I will be sitting A Level Psychology next year at A Level. I am currently sitting it at GCSE at FE college. Other than having to remember LOTS of studies, I wondered what else was involved with the qualification (at A Level)?

At GCSE, it is very brief. We only spend 10-20 minutes on each study- never really delving into any key aspect of Psychology for too long. I hope next year at A Level, I'll be able to delve a little deeper in content during classes rather than during my own free time.

I am also on Edexcel, how far are you through the approaches? What approaches have you done so far/currently doing? We have nearly finished cognitive and social, and halfway through biological! What about you?
