    Yep, that's my strongest point. Also, is there a lot of essay based questions? I heard there's not

    Use flashcards when trying to remember stuff and at night record your voice for the topic you're studying. They both help.

    It depends on your type of learning I suppose. At A-level I found it to be my easiest A-level, so easier than biology and geography. But degree level is another ball game.

    It's a good A-level, I recommend

    It's not bad, requires a lot of memory and a bit of Maths.

    No, it's not hard at all.

    But hey, that might just be because I love the subject in general and it's real life uses in understanding who I am and why people behave in the way they do.

    It's mostly memory and exam technique
    There's maths in research methods
    The maths is GCSE type

    I dont think its the hardest a level in the world, but it has so much to memorise. Like any a level it requires a lot of hard work. It definately had the most content in it of my 3 choices (geography and religious studies) but if you learn of mark schemes and answer the question as the examiners want (there are ways of working this out) its not all that hard in terms of exam technique. It has its boring parts, (alot of people think its all amazingly interesting) but there are better topics within it. Remember, psychology does have a fair amount of maths (statistics) and science (mainly neuro) as well.
