Psychology watch talk to the uni Official Rep

1. (Original post by grape:))
Hi there,

Just wondering what the maths is like? Because I find I am fine with Statistics and get along with that kinda thing very well, but other maths, I'm not such a fan (but will still be able to give it a go). So.... Is it mainly/all statistical maths?

Many thankyouuuuus x
There is no other maths except for statistics in Psychology.

Good! Someone had most certainly been pulling my leg! Horrible person! Gosh I should try what I know!

Thanks +rep (if its not too soon)
3. Hey! I'll be applying for the same course and date as you BSc Psych for 2010 entry!

Are you hoping to stay at RoHo for the Clinical in 2013? If so, double snap

I want to go to Holloway so, so badly. I fell in love with it when I went to the OD in July.

Can someone explain what statistics is to me? I've heard varying accounts and I'm somewhat confused.

Rhul accept students straight off their undergrad into the d.clin?

Statistics involve using statistical analysis (maths basically) on raw data for various purposes. E.g. to test whether or not the difference between two means is significant (usually to a 5% level of confidence). For example, you would often use tests such as paired/unpaired t-test, anova, chi-squared, z-tests etc.

I'm going to that open day too! Going again because I want to get a proper look round, I only really saw the Founders building and the Psych lecture when I went in June.

Heh, stalkers are fun

Holloway is breathtaking, especially arriving and entering the Quad through Founders. Seriously, I was so shocked.
The lecture was fun, it was hosted by a lecturer called Polly Dalton, who I read is an expert on perceptive psychology. She showed a fantastic video that will confuse the hell out of you if you haven't already seen it.

The maths is basically all statistics! Last year (1st year) we covered numerical methods, describing data, graphs and normal distributions, z scores and the t test, the Mann-Whitney, Willcoxon and Chi square tests, non-parametric tests, correlation, regression and SPSS. And maybe some other things I can't remember.

Sorry for the late reply, hope it still helps somewhat!
