GCSE Psychology

GCSE Psychology

After looking at the Exam Wiki , we are using the Edexcel board for this exam.  We chose this board, since all the topics of study were interesting and it comes with a set student book, there is a teaching plan available from pearson educational and past exam papers, the exams are mainly short answer questions with the longest one A4 page which suits RoadRunner.
