AS and A-level Psychology specification changes

Published: Wednesday 26 Jun 2019

We’ve made a few minor changes to the subject content of our AS and A-level Psychology (7181 and 7182) specifications to help make the content a little clearer. For A-level Psychology (7182) we’ve also removed a small part of the specification for Forensic psychology to ensure that the optional topics are more comparable. The changes will affect the summer 2020 exams and onwards.

The updated PDF specification (version 1.1) can be found on our qualifications page. We have flagged any key changes on the web version of our specifications in the subject content for AS Psychology and A-level Psychology, where they are highlighted as ‘updated’ in an orange box.
