Studying your GCSE

Frequently Asked Questions

GCSE Psychology is a fascinating subject that delves into the world of the human mind and behaviour. The course provides a captivating introduction to core psychological concepts, equipping you with a deeper understanding of yourself and others. Through engaging lessons and activities, you'll explore various aspects of psychology, including cognitive processes, social influences, neuropsychology, and psychological problems. By studying GCSE Psychology, you'll not only develop a critical understanding of human behaviour but also hone valuable skills like critical thinking, research, and communication. This subject paves the way for further exploration in psychology or related fields while offering valuable life skills applicable to various personal and professional settings.
The difficulty of GCSE Psychology depends on your individual learning style and prior knowledge. While it's not considered exceptionally challenging, some find it demanding due to the memorisation of key studies and concepts. However, if you enjoy the subject and find memory work manageable, it can be a rewarding and engaging experience.
While a GCSE in Psychology alone may not qualify you for specific careers directly, it opens doors to various pathways. In terms of further study, A-Level Psychology naturally builds upon your GCSE knowledge, preparing you for university degrees in psychology or related fields like sociology, criminology, or social work. You could also use it to prepare for other A-Levels, as psychology complements various subjects, potentially leading to careers in education, healthcare, law, marketing, or business. In terms of career options, your GCSE can help you pursue psychology-related assistant roles, many of which enable you to gain experience in research labs, healthcare settings, or educational institutions while pursuing further qualifications. The acquired skills like critical thinking, communication, and research analysis are also valuable in non-psychology careers like human resources, marketing, customer service, or sales.
Yes, you can! With learndirect, you can study GCSE Psychology from home. Being an online course with no set classes or a timetable, you can also log on and learn when it suits you. This makes it easy for anyone to study, whether you’re juggling other courses at the same time or studying alongside work or childcare.
No, the GCSE Psychology exam is not included in this version of the course, but you can purchase it separately if you wish to. If you decide to take the GCSE exam at the end of this course and pass, you will have gained a GCSE in Psychology. This will enable you to progress to further and higher education programmes.
