Psychology A Level at Paulet 6th Form College

Course description

Psychology is the scientific study of the way we think, feel and behave. Are we free to choose the type of person we want to do or is our personality and behaviour already determined? What is the right way to treat mental health issues? Are criminals born that way or are they made by society? Can we trust the results of a survey? How do we know what is true?
