Why AQA AS and A-level Psychology?

We have built on the success of our previous specifications and have worked with teachers, Higher Education and the British Psychological Society to create a clear, refreshed, relevant and stimulating specification that will be good to teach and inspire students.  

  • our AS and A-level are co-teachable, so you’ll be able to teach a mixed class of AS and year one A-level students. This also gives AS students the option to continue with the A-level in their second year
  • we have provided a range of new resources and support materials to help you with teaching and learning, including a choice of textbooks produced by leading publishers and teacher support events
  • as the most popular choice for AS and A-level Psychology, choosing our specification means you will be part of the country’s largest community of Psychology teachers, giving you access to the widest network of support to help with your teaching.

Students have the opportunity to learn how to analyse arguments and evidence, test hypotheses and make informed judgements – all skills valued by Higher Education institutions and employers.
