    I'd like to join. I do BSc Psych at Cardiff and just got a first overall for my first year So I'll be carrying on. I thought it was hard at first, I couldn't seem to get used to the scientific style, or stats (I got C's in Science and Maths at GCSE) and kinda thought it'd be more like A level. I was very wrong . For the first semester I couldn't get above a 2:2 or 2:1 at best, so I was really annoyed and thought I was crap but it all improved in the second semester.

    I hear the second year is a lot more difficult but less written stuff (reports etc!). Is it? o.O I'm doing Developmental, Statistics (oh joy, factor analysis!), Perception, Cognitive, Social and Abnormal next year. I still haven't decided what to pick in my 3rd year. Any tips?

    Well my teacher said don't worry about the word count and just focus on writing what you think should be in the report and doing it professionally. I think I wrote about 2500-3000 words. Did notice in the booklet that he made that there was a wordcount of 1500. Though I got a high A. Even when going over the word count.

    Word counts have always been in my way.. I write to much.. Didnt manage to hold me back in my coursework though, But Im not sure there even was a word count.

    Too true boho, I better get an A In Psych first off or I may go crazy.

    With regard to word counts, yes it does matter, well it did in my school. I can't remember what the word count was, it was either 1500 or 2000. My teacher was quite strict about it all because in the previous years before ours the moderators had noticed that people were writing a lot more than they were supposed to, and he said that he would stop reading this year at a certin point if a candidate had written way over the limit. I had to cut mine back loads, as i have to every year in every subject, which was a right pain in the bum, but i still managed to get a very good mark

    oooh, found the coolest ever course at uni before!!! Longborough (i think- or Lancaster) do a Social Psychology course, devoted entirely to Social psychology!!! No biology!!! wooooooooooo.

    When I was looking around for unis I based my decisions on if I would like the course...after all you are going to be studying the course for 3 years min you will need to like it.
    Did consider if I would like to live in the area afterwards and visited it to make sure the feel of the place was ok.

    Blodge???


    never been a fan of biology, it seens too professional. The ideas seem complex IMO and you usually have to have fancy qualifications just to perform any experiments

    my fave topic in psychology--------> Animal Behaviour

    Blode was our nickname for Biology.. Made it seem more funner.. True Animal behaviour was definately up there.. Especially all of the Theory of Mind stuff which luckily came up in my exam.

    My favourite part of the course was probably pro and anti social behaviour. I am really interested in working with young offenders who've committed crimes when i'm older so maybe thats why. Loved doing coursework as well as it gave me the chance to do my own thing.
