    I study psychology but have no background knowledge of the subject, i do have information that I have researched myself. But the majority of people that attend my lectures know what is going on and studied psychology during A levels and my lecturers all use technical jargons and make it seem as though we already know what we're talking about. How do i manage with this?

    Get yourself a Psychology dictionary and keep a glossary of any words/terms that come up in lectures.
    If they put up lecture slides then you can go through them beforehand. Make it as easy for yourself as you can until you get into the swing of the things. If you find the course texts difficult, find easier read ones. The Psychology Express ones are good as they are readable and will have all the theories etc.
    Don't give up on yourself. If you have a Personal Tutor, make an appointment to see him/her, and please don't assume that everyone else knows what's going on - they don't. I made that mistake when I started. Cheer up, lovely. X
