Description

The Psychology GCSE Syllabus is brought to life in an entertaining course that looks at questions such as: Why do we like some people and not others? How can an individual overcome a fear of spiders? Can you improve your memory?

Psychology is the science of the mind and behaviour. No matter who we are or what we do, some greater insight into this field will be relevant, and this is one reason why Psychology is one of the most popular of all our courses.

The syllabus focuses on the methods of psychology and its practical applications. Step by- step guidance is given with the necessary research projects.

Each lesson of the Psychology GCSE begins with a set of clearly stated objectives and an explanation of its place in the overall programme of study. Effective learning is encouraged through frequent activities and self-assessment questions, and there is guidance for the preparation of coursework and a large number of simply drawn and easy-to-copy illustrations.

There are eleven tutor-marked assignments, including one practice exam paper. No previous knowledge of the subject is assumed or required.

There is no limit on how often you can contact your tutor. The advice and encouragement our tutors provide are an important part of your learning experience. You can contact your tutor by Phone, Post or Email. There are tutor-marked assignments (TMA's) in every course. These help the student to consolidate their learning and prepare for examinations. All tutors have a Freephone 0800 telephone number and most will have Skype capabilities.
