Currently, it is a 2-year linear qualification, though some colleges may allow you to take the one-year AS Level.

In the first year, you will study Social Influence (obedience, conformity etc), Memory, Attachment, Biopsychology, Psychopathology (study of mental illness) and the Approaches in psychology. Alongside this you will study Research Methods, which is statistical testing and understanding of experimental design.

In the second year, you will study Issues and Debates in Psychology (eg nature vs nurture), and then three 'options' chosen by your college: one from relaitonships, gender, and cognition and development; one from schizophrenia, eating behaviour, and stress; and one from agression, forensic psychology, and addiction.
Alongside these in year two, you will continue with the work on research methods, and on the biopsychology, as some of the content is for A-Level/Second year only.

Hope this helps!
