Edexcel a level psychology 2019Watch
Probably not helpful, I dropped that yesterday (after completing an exam in History) and switched to History, I hate the subject with a passion. Good luck, you’ll need it!
Also, psychology is not only so abstract (wish - washy to be honest) it’s not respectable enough to apply competitively to Cambridge according to my school. So now I’ll be doing English Literature, History, Politics and an EPQ themed around law
I stuff,e heavily with sciences and maths, even basic maths I can’t stand and there’s a lot of science and a lot of maths.

I am a student wanting to study law too. BTW I am also a Cambridge Applicant. The university recently introduced the psychology course so I don't think it's going to discredit an applicant studying psychology in any way. If anything, y13 content consists of criminal psychology where you look at criminal cases and assess the mind of criminals. I find the subject quite relevant and interesting for law but I guess it is an acquired taste.
I actually wanted to do Criminal, since I'm into that kind of thing, but Child isn't that bad. AS content, although easier, was far too much. I ended up focusing on Social and Cognitive, skipped Biological, since I memorised it Day 1 and Learning was just like reading a scientific journal in a language I don't know. Regardless, AS was fun, same with this year.
Hey guys! Noticed there is isn't a thread for the psychology A-Level Edexcel exams for May 2019. Just a thread to help each other out with psych but also some basic chit chat. How are you guys feeling about it? What topics do you do?
My lecturer decided to swap Criminal for Child, which is odd to say the least. Clinical is fine, apart from depression, because we placed more emphasis on schizophrenia. Still, it was easy and fun to learn. Child is going well, but Ainsworth's types of attachments are a bit confusing. So far, nothing that makes me hate the approach. It's better than AS and the dreaded Learning approach. It may sound weird, but I find A2 easier, maybe because we're not overloaded with approaches.
