    It should enable you to accept join requests, and kick people out AFAIK

    UK Learning, this site was called that before it was rebranded as the student room.

    Seeing as there are quite a few new subscribers, why not introduce yourself? What level you are at/ where you study/ areas of interest (all that kind of thing...)

    Hello!
    I'm in 1st year at St Andrews (out of 4 years for those not familiar with the Scottish system). I'm taking psychology as an extra subject although considering taking it onto honours with management as I've been really interested in it so far. I never did psych before taking it as an extra module in September so my knowledge is still very limited. So far we've covered the foundations & history of psychology, developmental, perception, neuroscience and memory. Only the basics in these areas though I'd guess.

    Hey, Been away for ages but dithering about revision has brought me back to StudentRoom.
    So, quick update. Im 2nd year Psychology student in London. Handed in my last piece of weighted coursework last week and now revision is upon me. Well to be fair, its supposed to have started over christmas but you know what its like.
    I was just wondering how many people (already on degree courses) have felt so much uncertainty in terms of what they want to go into? I went in with an idea but also an open mind, now im so confused. Im interested in so many different areas!

    I'm only a first year but I started off wanting to be a clinical psych - my first clinical module shut that down pretty quick. Currently I want to do neuropsychology but I have a feeling the fact that it's largely research based may put pay to that... I know more what I don't want to do, rather than what I do want to do.

    Pretty similar here too. I went into the degree really wanted to go into clinical. And to an extent I still do. But I love neuroscience side of things and then thought that I would maybe aim to do a qualification in clinical neuropsychology after clinical training.
    But then I also have a passion for inspiring people to engage in education and make learning interesting, fun and relevant. So I have also contemplated teaching. As with all of the above career considerations im interested in work with children rather than adults.

    Then further adding to the mix is an interest in pregnancy and early infant-mother interaction, amongst those with difficult pregnancies, existing mental health issues and PND, and teenage pregnancy.

    And recently I have a new found interest in research lol

    Who knows I guess I'll just take it as it comes. Work hard and see what opportunities arise.

    To be honest, most of the people who teach the neuropsychology modules at universities are themselves clinical psychs. You can do both.

    That is very true.
    Am I right in thinking that you decided that you want to persue medicine after your degree? Or am I confusing you with someone else?

    Eesh, I just found something really interesting for people doing A Level (they lie to us!):
    http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/1.../piq.20099/pdf

    About the Miller 7+-2 STM thing. If its not in the A Level spec, should I not include research that says otherwise?
