Psychology at The Warriner School

Course description

What is Psychology?

The mind is something intangible. Biological processes, evolution, other people, mental habits and upbringing all affect the way we feel, think and behave. But why is it that some people suffer from stress and mental illness? Why do some people fear snakes yet a few think they are cuddly?

Psychology looks at questions like these in the study of the human mind and behaviour. It is a science with cutting edge research that has real world applications to issues in everyday life, ranging from things like artificial intelligence to social change.

How does Psychology A-level work?

Across the two years, students will sit 4 examinations – 2 at AS Level, and 2 at A-level. Each exam constitutes 50% of each qualification. Examinations are each 1 hour 30 minutes long (Unit 4 is 2 hours long). All examinations require extensive writing, and assess skills in recall, application and understanding.

Choose A-level Psychology and open your mind. Figure out what is REALLY in your head.
