How do I study GCSE Psychology?

Is psychology a hard GCSE?

Many potential students often ask "is psychology a hard GCSE subject?".  The tutorial above will hopefully answer this question but in short, the answer is no, GCSE psychology is not a particularly hard subject to learn provided you revise sufficiently and learn the key theories and how to evaluate them.

There are a number key theories and concepts you need to learn which may be difficult initially but once you learn them, they are easy to recall. Learning to evaluate everything and finding strengths as well as weaknesses is key for the bigger questions and reaching the higher scoring bands.

    Really good set of textbooks, much more detailed than the standard AQA ones and practice questions at the end of each chapter are really useful as they are based on actual past questions. Would recommend.

  2. Rhys Brookes (verified owner)

    Fantastic resource packs! We are using them at our school and they really helping my students

  3. JP Cooper (verified owner)

    Brilliant resource. Has helped massively during this exam time.

  4. Esmé Gardner (verified owner)

    In-depth revision guides, useful for those wanting more detail than what the textbooks give. The evaluation points are useful for the bigger 12 mark essay style questions too. Helpful practice questions for each topic at the end of each pack.

  5. Grace Jones (verified owner)

    Really helpful for grasping each of the 8 topics

  6. Samantha Clarke (verified owner)

    Well explained and my students are finding these packs really useful just before the exams. It's all nicely broken down across the specification. We would love to see similar resources for A-level too as we also teach this at sixth form.

  7. Kerry N (verified owner)

    Everything is covered really well across both papers

  8. Becky Moore (verified owner)

    Your packs proved really useful for my students this year, many of them averaged Grades 7 - 9 for their GCSEs. I will recommend my next year group to check your content out.

  9. Matilda Grace (verified owner)

    The best set of resources I've come across for GCSE psychology and everything is nicely broken down step by step

  10. Amelia Reed (verified owner)

    I've been using this psychology textbook for my studies, and it's been a valuable guide. The explanations are clear, and I find the practice questions at the end helpful. It gets the job done for a psychology student like me.

  11. Alan Smith (verified owner)

    These are some of the best revision textbooks available for GCSE psychology because the content follows the spec exactly and then you have the practice questions taken from all the past exams compiled for each chapter to work through that helps you test your knowledge.
