About this course

AQA A-Level Psychology Catch-Up 2021 is a series of online study programmes designed to support students taking AQA A-Level Psychology in summer 2021.

This Catch-Up course provides students with an opportunity to study the Approaches topic in full, with synoptic applications to topics from Paper 1, Paper 2 and Paper 3. The course is organised into sections, each of which focuses on one Approach, with application to multiple topics on the specification and with a wide range of activities and exam technique advice that will prove invaluable in 2021. Each Week comprises a series of sequenced, guided videos designed and recorded by experienced AQA A-Level Psychology teachers and examiners, supported by interactive revision activities and resource downloads.

Whilst the course is designed to be completed in sequence, it is also ideal as a support resource for “flipped” or “blended” learning throughout the 2020/21 school year and will also be invaluable when students come to revise Approaches for mocks and the real exams.

Who it's for

All students preparing to take AQA A-Level Psychology exams in Summer 2021.
