Im considering psychology as my 3rd subject (with bio and chem) but I am worried that it is an essay subject, is this right for the new course?

In my psychology a level we studied biological and chemical interactions in the brain, nervous system, heart and digestive system (eating disorders) but it was an essay based exam. We have I think 6 questions, 3 were large essays and 3 were minor questions on specific module topics (the essay questions I believe we could choose which we answered but I may be wrong).

I believe it is an essay based course, yes. Don't let that put you off though. You'll get used to it after a while. If you're planning on going to university, then it can be incredibly important to retain your analytical and written skills, and essay based A-levels will help with that. Not to mention, it's still 3 sciences.

Yes it is an essay based subject. The highest mark question we had was 20 markers. I did OCR.

I do all those subjects and the essays are there however they are not too bad (I’m predicated a B/A grade at A level with only a B and C in English at gcse) as with practice you get loads better ( they are usually 12/16 markers) it is not all essays but the essay writing will help you for the 25 mark essay on paper 3 biology so well worth taking if you think you’ll enjoy it, honestly I think those are a great combination and open many doors as university 😊
