Psychology

Have you ever wondered what turns someone into a Psychopath? Why men reputedly don’t listen and women allegedly can’t read maps? How much sleep your body really needs? Or why some people hear voices? Or why eyewitnesses can be unreliable?  Have you ever considered how early life experiences affect future relationships or wondered how to decide if someone is suffering from a mental illness? 

These and many other questions are explored during an A-Level Psychology course. Not only will you gain insights into the human mind, but you will also learn practical strategies that will help you in all areas of your life. In addition, the Psychology A-Level course equips you with a number of important transferable academic skills such as the ability to write a scientific report, the ability to produce a clearly structured argument substantiated with evidence, the ability to evaluate methodology and weigh up the strengths and weaknesses of different types of explanation.
