I don't know what exam board you are with but for AQA psychology A:

unit 2 (PSYA3) topics in psychology: you chose three from these following topics - 

  • Biological rhythms and sleep.
  • Perception.
  • Relationships.
  • Aggression.
  • Eating behaviour.
  • Gender.
  • Intelligence and learning.
  • Cognition and development.

Unit 4 (PSYA4) Psychopathology, psychology in action and research methods. Research methods is compulsory but you choice one from psychopathology and one from psychology in action. Here are the choices for them two:


  • Schizophrenia.
  • Depression.
  • Phobic disorders.
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder

Psychology in action:

  • Media psychology.
  • The psychology of addictive behaviour.
  • Anomalistic psychology.

Hope this helps. There should be further information on your exam boards website. If you want anymore detail just let me know.
