I’m condsidering choosing Psychology along with my other two A Levels Bio and Chem, but wanted to hear others experiences with Psychology and what it’s like and what you study. I haven’t done Psychology at GCSE, but understand there are case studies, statistics, nervous system and behaviour/gender involved. What do you study, how did you find it, was the workload hard and how did you manage it, is it mainly essay based? Also any other info or advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Essays and memorising studies/facts. As long as you don't have a useless teacher, it's pretty interesting. Workload depends on your teacher, ours was fine, had little homework, outside of homework it depends on the intensity of your revision and revision prep.
There's social influences, attachments, cognitive, psychopathology, biopsychology, approaches, issues and debates, research methods and there are some which are options that your school makes, which meant we did schizophrenia, forensics, and relationships.
If you can remember things well and write decent, yet basic, essays, you're golden. Because that's the whole course.
