    well that's entirely dependant on you,how fast you can learn it all and if you're really determined to learn it all in time for exams.like i said,get a textbook or even before that,look through the syllabus (course outline) online and judge it for yourself.if you know that your other subjects could slow you down/you'd get lazy or bored/not put in enough effort/whatever,then i would probably say that you should leave it till after your gcses.

    I'm already trying to fit in extra language and ICT GCSEs (ones offered at school though rather than ones I arranged myself) so maybe I'll just wait til A level. I'll have a look at the course tomorrow though and decide.

    Good society. Besides, I think that people who don't study Psychology shouldn't criticise it until they've tried it. I find it easy because of the way the course is structured and because it is a very interesting topic, but I know some people who find it hard. Especially the stuff that's based on the biological/medical approach. It's also pretty useful, I think. :-)

    i find the biological approach really hard...like with stress...couldnt work all that stuff out..lol..and the same with sleep atm..lol

    but hey..im not that clever

    buts its defo..not a micky mouse subject

    Hi! I'm a Psychology teacher and AQA examiner and would love to share resources and advice with everyone on here, so can I join the society please? By the way, I agree with you, psychology is NOT a mickey mouse subject and anyone who says it is should have his/her head examined (pardon the pun)!

    Thanks

    hi there. would be good to have some expert advice, so welcome

    ps: just to say everyone's join requests have been processed,so welcome to the society! if you need any help, don't be afraid to post them here or send a pm. I know this place is a bit quiet right now,so if you post stuff,it'll come back to life! We even have a teacher who can help and has more experience that those of us at uni so i'm sure he'll assist you if you ask nicely.

    What subjects do you need to become a psychologist/therapist?
    Just A/A2 psychology will get you in uni? Or do you need more subjects such as bio or maths?

    if you have an art/science background, it'll get you into uni for psychology. you don't need any subjects apart from maths and english at gsce, you'll be accepted with any subject as long as you meet the uni's requirement. although it is easier if you've got as/alevels in maths and/or biology, because there is a fair bit of statistics and biology involved.

    Let's say I wish to study psy at Uni. What jobs could you get with psychology except being a psychologist offcourse.

    any job. you could go into retail management, be a psychology teacher (but you'd need to do a pgse (or i think pgce) which would qualify you to teach), you could go into research, HR management, consultancy, sports therapist/industrial therapist/occupational therpaist, clinical psychologist, counsellor/therapy (with the right training), cognitive psychologist, etc etc. there are loads of things you could become with psychology, you just have to be able to adapt it to your chosen profession and then get the remaining credentials for it so it'd be a masters/post grad/whatever it is you need.
