A minimum of four grade 5s at GCSE including either English Language, History or Religious Studies, and a grade 4 or above in Maths and Science.
DurationTwo year course.
What will I study?Psychology is the scientific study of mind and behaviour, attempting to explain a wide range of behaviours from human depression to causes of aggression.
Memory - including recalling the details of crime
Attachment - including the effects of growing up without love and care
Good course combinationsIf you are taking a’ science’ route with your A Levels it goes well with Biology and Maths. If you are taking a ‘humanities’ route for your A Levels it goes well with Sociology.
Please note that you will be required to understand and apply basic mathematical principles in the exam, such as ratios, fractions, means, basic statistics, drawing graphs and tables. You will also be performing and writing up your own scientific research. The scientific aspects of the course examine the brain and the nervous system, so a willingness to learn and apply biological principles is also required.
What could it lead to?Psychology is useful for any career that involves working with people (or animals). Previous students have also gone on to study for a range of degrees including law, medicine, business, sports studies and music.
