    Hi, i am currently working on my Psychology personal statement. However, i took ICT as an A level and i am struggling to link it to Psychology. I know it is important to talk about our subjects and how they will help us with our course, does anybody have any ideas? Thank you.

    As I said on your other thread which was exactly the same (oops), don't talk about it. A Levels are not important to mention

    If you feel you can use it to sell yourself, then great. But don't force the link if it's not there!

    Things that are useful from an ICT background for studying psychology (at least in my experience): excel (for data manipulation, analysis - means, totals etc., and presentation - graphs/tables etc.), any stats software experience (SAS, R, SPSS), access (or any other databases), any sort of programming (you can link to this programming a computer to present stimuli and/or collect data for you.

    I was going to say that there's no need to try and link all of you a levels to psychology and to just leave it out. But this comment is actually really useful. Including this sort of information will also show you understand different aspects of what a psychology degree actually includes.
