Hello TSR! (AQA Psychology)

I'm taking an intensive in Psychology this year, so all the AS/A2 units, however i'm extremely confused into which specification im supposed to use as the AQA website have a new one

If you're taking A2 or retaking any AS units please show me which is the correct one im supposed to use

thanks!

AQA have two specifications I believe, A and B. If you are doing an intensive course, it would be either of these specifications. The new spec wouldn't be relevant. I'm personally doing AQA Psychology A!

-edit- I should probably add that I didn't do AS with AQA, but for A2 the topics I'm doing are:

Unit 3 - Aggression, Gender, Biological rhythms and sleep
Unit 4 - Schizophrenia, Addiction and Research methods

Just in case you are entering as a private candidate: do you have a local school/college willing to let you sit all 4 papers of the legacy specification this summer? (Harder to find a centre than you might think!)
