Seneca Learning has a free A-level psychology summer preparation course which follows the AQA specification (content between other exam boards are broadly similar). Hope this helps!

Hello, I have an experience of studying A-Level psychology, without studying it at GCSE level. I would say, it is definitely not essential to study psychology at GCSE, but of course it does help . To prepare yourself for the start of the course, you may want to find out what exam board you will be following, and see whether you can access some relevant study resources. Revision guides can be great for beginning to familiarise yourself with the topics, but there are also other study materials you can access for free. For example, you may want to have a look at various psychology websites with great revision material such as: sparknotes, simplypsychology and studywise. YouTube videos and tutorials can also be very helpful, especially if you are looking to expand your general understanding of psychology, or are looking to find out which topics inspire you the most. Here are some interesting Youtube psychology channels you may want to explore: SciShow Psych, The Psych Show. But there are some many others out there! You may also want to try out Khan Academy Psychology, which includes videos going through some of the most popular psychology research studies, which are often covered in A Level Psychology.

Let me know if you have any more questions, or would like any more details about anything.

Best Wishes,
