Psychology A level
If you are interested in learning about why you or others behave the way they do, then psychology might be for you. You will learn all about the mind and brain, and how it affects the way we act, think and feel. This includes how we remember things; why we become attached to adults as infants and whether this affects our future relationships; are people born to be criminals or is this something that is developed?
Studying psychology at A level teaches you the fundamentals of the subject, as well as developing key transferable skills which are greatly valued by higher education courses and employers.
