i've just started it and i'm finding it really interesting - we learn about case studies (doing social influence at the moment). i'd say go for it if you have an interest in it

Its an essay based subject but scientific in nature - quite a nice mix.

AS Psychology can be a bit tedious at times. However, at A2 it is very interesting.

What do you learn?
In AS psychology last year, I learnt about:
  • Approaches in psychology- cognitive, behavioural, psychodynamic, humanistic, biological and social learning theory.
  • Biopsychology- nerves, nervous system, cortical specialisation and the fight/flight response.
  • Sex and gender- cultural variations, androgyny, Klinefelter's/Turner's syndrome.
  • Research methods
  • Autism- biological and cognitive explanations and treatment.
  • Social influence- Milgram, Asch, Obedience and conformity.
  • Social facilitation- evaluation apprehension, some other stuff

As far as I'm aware, it massively depends on the exam board.
