Thinking towards taking psychology at A level, I'm currently doing my GCSEs and will be sitting the exams this year.

If you happen to take psychology, or took it, please tell me anything about the subject, for example; how content heavy is it, how hard is the maths involved.

Any info will be appreciated as I just want to get familiar with the subject.

In psychology, as long as you have logic and memorise some studies, you will be fine. I did not do any maths in mine.

It seems content heavy at first, but since everything is so logical, I doubt you will have any trouble remembering it. Just remember the amount of studies you need (e.g. if your book gives you 11 exmples of studies and 3 ethical issues for the debate, but you only need 5 studies and an ethical issue, do not bother with more than that).

You will study five approaches and learn three basic ideas about them. You will also learn about relationship formation from each perspective, a therapy each, and you will have a debate as well. For research methods, you will learn about different types of studies and such.

The analysis involved only needs to be brief. Questions never have that many marks (except for the 20 marks debate essay).

It is an easy A-level; you will definitely do well.
