Psychology - A Level at Heart of England Sixth Form

Course description

Psychology is the study of the mind and behaviour. Psychology is all around us, from relationships with our parents, siblings and friends to understanding why your dog gets excited when you walk towards the cupboard his food is kept in!

A level Psychology does not teach us to read minds, understand body language or be able to predict the future but it does get you thinking about why people act like they do. Why do people obey, conform or feel anxious… Why do people sleep? How does our brain work? And the burning question, what actually is love?

Entry requirements

Grade 5 in English Language or Literature.

This requirement is because there is so much writing in Psychology (100% exam).  Good knowledge of Mathematics and Biology is also required as the course is based around the anatomy of the human brain and you will be expected to carry out statistical tests.
