Teaching and learning
Cambridge International AS and A Level Psychology learners develop their appreciation of the subject by exploring the ways in which psychology is conducted. As part of their studies, learners also review important research; this provides an insight into the ways in which psychology has been applied, thereby leading to a better understanding of key themes and issues.
The syllabus reflects five core areas of psychology, namely cognitive, social, physiological, developmental and the psychology of individual differences; it also relates psychology to education, health, organisations, the environment and abnormality.
From the 2018 examination series, this syllabus will be replaced by Cambridge International AS and A Level Psychology (9990).
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
There are no updates for this syllabus
