    It's easier but it's a BTEC.
    But if I have 3 other A-levels to go with it would that be okay??

    According to my friends who take it its mainly about just learning experiments that were carried out and research methods. You learn about some psychologists as well like Freud.
    Okay thank you. Do you know if you have to learn any case studies, like off my heart to use in exams??

    Yeah I think so. It's heavy memorisation

    Why do you think that?
    The same reason that it is compulsory at GCSE; it is the basis, fundament of many, many professions and teaches you logic and methodical thinking.

    But what if you want to take a degree or have a job that is in no way relevant to Maths? It wouldn't help you then

    The skills you develop stay with you regardless. Plus, jobs without any maths are typically no use anyway, save for a few like Doctors or Lawyers.

    There are jobs that are completely useful and don't need maths like:
    Teachers of things like History, Sociology, Religion, Culture; Diagnostic Medial Sonographer; Clinical Psychologists; Writers; News reporters; Athletes; Lawyers and many more. If any of these did need any Maths it would be minimal and most of Maths is thing like Trig and Algebra and not things you would use on a daily bases in any of these jobs; and some of them are very important and are very useful.
