Studying your GCSE

Embarking on a GCSE Psychology course is to commit to the study of the human mind and behaviour.

Psychology is a broad discipline which includes many areas of study such as cognitive development, and clinical and social behaviour.

During your GCSE Psychology, you will study memory, perception, communication and social influence. You will have the opportunity to explore neuropsychology, psychological problems and the impact on the human mind.

By the end of the course, you will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of psychological ideas, processes and theories. You will be able to evaluate psychological ideas and make a judgement or draw conclusions based on learned skills.

Included in this course bundle are the two exams you’ll need to gain your GCSE. Paper 1 will focus on cognition and behaviour, paper 2 covers social context and behaviour.

Both papers will include a mix of multiple-choice, short answer and extended writing questions.

A GCSE Psychology qualification will allow you to go on to study the subject and other Social Sciences at A Level and beyond.

Getting Started

Studying your GCSE with learndirect isn’t like with traditional colleges. All of our courses are online, so you never need to worry about making it to class.

Your classroom is wherever you choose it to be and class starts when you're ready. That means you can study when it's best for you, not when someone tells you to. This allows you to work your studies around your work and family commitments. You won’t ever have to choose between learning and spending time with the kids.

Because the course is online, you can start right away via our online portal. This gives you the choice to decide not only when to study, but how quickly you want to complete the course. The only specific deadline to work towards is your exam – exam sittings are held once per year in May or June.

You will also be provided with a tutor to support you throughout your Psychology GCSE. Your tutor will mark your assignments, providing guidance and feedback. They are also on hand to answer questions or clarify anything should you get stuck.

Pursuing your career

A GCSE in Psychology allows you to go on to study either at A Level, complete an RQF or an Access to HE Diploma. All of which can allow you to go on to study Psychology or another Social Science at degree level.

Frequently Asked Questions

The GCSE Psychology topics you’ll cover in our online GCSE Psychology course include memory, perception, development, research methods, social influence, language, thought and communication, the brain and neuropsychology, and psychological problems. These topics will give you a deeper insight into your own thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, and enhance your self-awareness and personal development. Learning about different perspectives and experiences also fosters empathy and understanding for others, improving your interpersonal relationships. You'll also develop critical thinking skills to analyse information objectively, challenge assumptions, and make informed decisions.
There are so many ways to make your GCSE Psychology revision memorable and effective. You could draw colourful mind maps with visuals linking key concepts, using different colours, shapes, and images to trigger memory recall. You could write keywords, definitions, or diagrams on flashcards to actively engage your brain by testing yourself and visualising the relevant information. Another great tip is to create hypothetical situations where concepts apply and discuss them with friends or family to deepen your understanding and practice explaining them. Watching documentaries or listening to podcasts is another great way to supplement your learning with engaging media that explores psychological topics in real-world contexts.
With learndirect, there are no entry requirements for our A-Level Psychology course, but a GCSE or IGCSE in this subject would be beneficial. It equips you with essential concepts and terminology, providing a strong foundation for understanding the more complex A-Level content. This boosts your confidence, smoothes the learning curve, and allows you to focus on deeper understanding rather than catching up on basics. It's not just building knowledge, it's building a solid foundation for success in A-Level Psychology.
Yes, it is! GCSE Psychology isn't just fascinating, it's a stepping stone to exciting higher education and numerous important and interesting careers. It unlocks doors to A-Level Psychology and related fields like sociology, criminology, or social work, paving the way for careers in education, healthcare, law, marketing, or business. While it directly helps prepare for assistant roles in psychology research or healthcare, transferable skills like critical thinking, research, and communication are universally valuable, boosting your chances in diverse career paths. So, if you're curious about human behaviour and want to open doors to diverse future options, GCSE Psychology is definitely worth considering!
