    And just tagging StaffsUniDrew to tell us what hw thinks about this (above)
    Hey Luna. Just having a quick skim through and I agree with most of what was said. Of course there is going to be slight variations between universities in terms of their curriculum and how they assess things, but by and large that is what you should expect 😊

    What I will say is that doing a purely Psychology course (i.e. not Forensic Psychology, Psychology and Counselling etc.), you will have more choice for optional modules. At Staffs you have the basics covered over 1st and 2nd year, making sure you do Social, Biological, Cognitive, Developmental, and Individual Differences Psychology, obviously with a bit of Research Methods and Stats thrown in for good measure. Past that you can choose to do things like Health Psych, Psych of Crime, and more practical things like a Volunteering module (if you are worried about not having enough experience).

    Any other questions just gimme a shout!

    I got AAB (and an A* in my internal psychology exam) at AS

    Don't worry! It's only been less than a week, some unis apparently do tend to reply late though
