Psychology - A-Level at St Aidan's Catholic Academy
Psychology is the study of behaviour and perceptions, investigating physiological and
psychological aspects of thinking and acting, instinctive and learned responses and how we
structure our perceptions and understanding as individual personality. It studies motivation,
expression, repression, difference and biological criteria. Psychology is useful because it provides
insights into modern problems such as stress, eating disorders, and physical illness, based on
sound scientific principles.
GCSE C grade or above in Maths and English.
The entry requirements reflect the challenging nature of the subject. A keen interest in the
behaviour of people (in terms of developmental, cognitive, social) is essential. No previous
knowledge of Psychology is required.
