About this course

This course provides AQA A-Level Psychology students with an opportunity to study the Issues and Debates topic in full, and to practice application and synoptic skills, to the rest of the specification.

The course 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 remaining part of study in Year 13 making it invaluable for supporting revision for centre-based assessments and the summer exams.
