Hi im 14 and i wanted to do a psychology GCSE but it was taken from my schools options before i got to pick. Can someone explain how i could go about doing a private GCSE in it instead? It is the main option i wanted to to since i got into highschool and ive been into it for a long time. I get good grades and the extra work doesnt bother me.Many thanks x

What a shame they took Psychology away from your options list.

I guess your options are:
1. Psychology is a massive A level but not so popular at GCSE. You will almost certainly be able to study it at A level and you don't need a GCSE in the subject to follow the course. You could just not worry about the GCSE, find the A level Psychology teacher and ask them to recommend some books you could look at as prep for A level.

2. Find a private GCSE Psychology tutor. This should be possible but you will need to organise your own exam entry - suggest you ask at your school's exam office about this.

My personal advice would be option 1 as you don't want the study of an extra GCSE to get in the way of doing well in all your other subjects.

Do you have a personal tutor you can discuss the issue with?

Let me know what you decide to do. Good luck!
