Psychology GCSE – a brief overview

The study of psychology is a fascinating journey through the hows and whys of human behaviour.  Our engaging course will cover interesting topics such as Body Language, Prejudice, Conformity and Gender roles, to name but a few.

Each lesson of the GCSE Psychology course 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 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.

The course covers the entire syllabus in nine modules:

  • Introductory module
  • Module One:  Memory
  • Module Two: Perception
  • Module Three: Development
  • Module Four:  Research Methods
  • Module Five:  Social Influence
  • Module Six:  Language, Thought and Communication
  • Module Seven: Brain and Neuropsychology
  • Module Eight:  Psychological Problems

Students will have the opportunity to complete 10 Tutor-marked assignments and 2 mock examinations papers.

What our Students think…

I thoroughly enjoyed studying with Oxford Open learning, so much so, that I studied with them again for an A level. The support I received from them was awesome. I would not hesitate to recommend Oxford Open Learning to anyone who wants to progress in education, either to further their career or just for their own pleasure. My Student Adviser Valerie was very helpful and friendly. If I ever had a query she handled it swiftly and professionally and kept me informed of any decisions made.
