Oxford College offers this full ‘AS’ level course in Psychology and the AS award has now been redefined as a final qualification which no longer constitutes the first half of an Advanced Level qualification, so no marks can be carried forward to that qualification.

Before you start your studies, please take the time to read through this introductory section as it provides important background information about your studies.

The course materials are comprehensive standalone content which follow the specification closely. Most students like to have a supporting text book to draw on which provides alternative perspectives on main topics and themes; text books also follow the specification closely. If you would like to purchase a supporting text book or borrow one from your local library then simply makes sure that it covers the AQA 2015 Psychology specification. There are a range of different text books to choose from and each one is slightly different in presentation and how it is written so selection will be according to individual preference so have a look at some before deciding.

Course summary

This specification has been designed to provide a broad introduction to the scope and nature of psychology as a science, bringing the content up to date. The emphasis is on applying knowledge and understanding rather than just acquiring knowledge, thereby developing your transferable skills of analysis, evaluation and critical thinking.

The course also aims to help you:

  • Develop essential knowledge and understanding of different areas of the subject and how they relate to each other
  • Develop and demonstrate a deep appreciation of the skills, knowledge and understanding of scientific methods
  • Develop competence and confidence in a variety of practical, mathematical and problem-solving skills
  • Develop interest in and enthusiasm for the subject, including developing an interest in further study and careers associated with the subject
  • Understand how society makes decisions about scientific issues and how the sciences contribute to the success of the economy and society.

    The 2015 Psychology specification has a number of changes from the 2008 specification. One of the new requirements is that the 2015 includes a minimum of 10% of at least Level 2 (GCSE) mathematical skills as part of the overall marks.

    You will be expected to:
  • Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of psychological concepts, theories, research studies, research methods and ethical issues
  • Apply psychological knowledge and understanding content in a range of contexts
  • Analyse, interpret and evaluate psychological concepts, theories, research studies and research methods
  • Evaluate therapies and treatments including in terms of their appropriateness and effectiveness.
  • Knowledge and understanding of research methods, practical research skills and mathematical skills (you can download the Mathematical requirements and exemplifications guide from www.aqa.org.uk)

    These skills should be developed through study of the specification content and through ethical practical research activities, involving:
  • Designing research
  • Conducting research
  • Analysing and interpreting data.
    In carrying out practical research activities, students will manage associated risks and use information and communication technology (ICT).
