You need to ask yourself the following questions:

• It’s now regarded as a national curriculum science, so do you like science, particularly Biology?

• Are you inquisitive and prepared to do lots of reading?

• Are you happy to consider a variety of explanations and critically evaluate them in a scientific manner, backing up your arguments with research evidence?

• Do you like to express your opinion? Well don’t pick this then! If you can’t back it up with evidence, no one cares. Like we said - it’s a science!

Your next steps...

Psychology combines well with almost every other course and the skills required to do it well are transferable to anything. Whatever your planned area of study or work after 6th form, Psychology will be valuable to you. Everything from Medicine to engineering have important psychology components and the idea that it is somehow a soft option died a long time ago.
