A Psychology student studies the brain, the mind and behaviour and will gain some fascinating insights into why humans act as they do. At its root Psychology is a scientific subject and there will be the chance to design and run experiments to test theories you'll be covering. The range of topics you'll study will typically cover memory, development, abnormal behaviour, biological psychology and social psychology as well as some more specialised areas.

Psychology requires a keen analytical mind which can observe patterns and aberrations and of the utmost importance is the ability to express ideas and arguments well. Marked by Teachers allows you to benefit from essay examples which show you what examiners are looking for in this regard.

Psychology is a truly fascinating subject which allows you to become aware of the reasons for both conventional and unconventional human behaviour. You maywish to take the subject further but if you don't it is a good basis for degree level courses in Economics, Anthropology and Human Resources Management.
