Psychology GCSE

Woman thinking, Analysis, Puzzle

Each lesson of the GCSE Psychology 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 eight tutor-marked assignments, including one practice exam paper. No previous knowledge of the subject is assumed or required.


The course covers the entire syllabus in eight modules:

  • Introduction to psychology
  • Emotion
  • Perception
  • Memory
  • Learning
  • The Development of Social Behavior
  • Social Perception
  • Social Influence

Our GCSE Psychology courses prepare students for AQA GCSE Psychology syllabus 4182, for exams  in 2015 and later years. Assessment is by two written papers (50% each). We have chosen this syllabus as it is the most suited to home schooling.

Coursework and controlled assessment are not required for Psychology GCSE.
