Hi, Ive decided to do Psychology A Level (OCR Board) in a year at night school, and resit some of my chemistry and maths A Level modules in an attempt to get the required grades for my course at uni... I was just wondering if anyone has done this course either AS or A2 and could give me some information on it.
Thanks.

I did Psych on OCR. It's difficult to give information without knowing what you're after. The A/S course was pretty easy. Detail learning etc. Consisted of 3 exams (I think?) one of which was based on coursework you would have conducted in the year. Providing the coursework was done well (you could take certain parts of it into the exam) it was relatively easy.
The second year was slightly more complicated. On the coursework aspect, it required 2 pieces (one experiment based, and the other an analysis of a written piece of work...newspaper article etc) which weren't too difficult. I did the crime and health modules for the exams, which were quite complicated. There was a lot of fact and study learning, as well as needing to be able to compare and evaluate etc.
On the whole it's difficult to say if this is going to be the same structure for you at night classes. If you have any more question I'll try and answer them, but I can remember more about the A2 course!

hi. i studied a level psychology a few years ago. the coursework was good fun and well worth it, i personally struggled with the exams, though i believe they have changed now. It is a very interesting and worthwhile course to do, i thoroughly enjoyed it.

It seems like not many do this course, but if you know someone that does tell them about this post!!! LOL! I would really appreciate it, also if you know anyone that is studying Psychology at uni that would be cool to get in touch...as who knows after the A Level it could be a possible career direction! Thanks.

Best articles are from car magazines, personally look at driver feuds - Ayrton Senna v Alain Prost is a fantastic example. ALOT can be unpicked from that.
Spanking children, etc etc...

has anyone done Health? can anyone tell me what the exam is like? i got 242 on my AS but am finding A2 a little hard i want to get a head start so to speak

get the ocr psychlogy in practise books for your A2 modules.. learn these and you will be fine.. you have to write essays, including knowledge of thoeries and past research.. just write as much as you can in the time you have but make sure you structure it well..

what A2 modules is anyone doing??
