    is AS psychology an easy A grade and an easy fourth A Level
    well i got a C with minimal work during the year, but put a heck of lot of revision in during may/june

    So essentially, yes easy, but relatively so. Comparing psychology to subjects like chemistry, it is easy. Comparing psychology with the likes of sociology though, and it is hard.

    Bear in mind there's lots of maths involved in the AS too (and the A Level)

    I'm currently doing the A Level (in yr13 now) and the content in year 13 is a lot more interesting than the content in year 12. what i would say is that it's not easy in year 13, you do have to put effort and work in, in order to get a good result

    Yes - I got an A at AS just by literally memorising the revision guide (although there was a lot to remember). As long as you include evaluative points in most of your answers, especially your 6, 8 and 12 markers, then you should be fine.

    The grade boundary for an A was 68%.

    I managed to get an A* but it took a lot of revision! It’s not necessarily a very hard subject, just loads to remember!
