AQA Psychology AS and A Level Revision

Does A level psychology seem hard? Maybe it feels so overwhelming at the amount of stuff you need to learn and remember for the exams that you’re probably wondering how to begin? How on earth do you begin to memorise all this psychological information? – I’ve been there and so have all the Loopa students whose pictures you see on the website.

Well what if I told you psychology doesn’t need to be a hard subject! – Sometimes you just need a bit of guidance and that’s where I come in. I’ve broken down your entire A level course for you below with an in depth guide and revision checklist for all the psychology topics you need to learn – Let’s get started.

How Do I Begin Revising For A level Psychology?

(This explains everything below – read it carefully ! Links to resources and notes are also given below!)

You are studying the new specification if you have started your psychology course after September 2015 as a new student. You will start learning unit 1 and unit 2 (also known as 7181/1 and 7181/2) for AS and the full A level has the unit code 7182 where you will also sit a third paper too.

You can download the new specification here.

Some students are still doing the old psychology specification if they are retaking their exams with the last opportunity to resit them likely to be the 2017 exam window. Students who started studying A level psychology from 2015 or later will always be learning the new psychology specification. The first set of year 2 exams for the new psychology specification (also known as just A level exams now) will be sat in 2017 onwards. Below you have a road map for how your AS or A level psychology course breaks down:


An Overview Of Your AQA Psychology Exam Papers

AQA A Psychology Road Map


The Psychology Syllabus Explained

  • AS students sit unit 1 (7181/1) and then unit 2 (7181/2) after 1 year of study. At this point they can either opt to keep the AS qualification and finish the course or choose to continue to do the full A level in the second year.
  • If you choose to do the full A level you will resit modified versions of unit 1 and unit 2 again (which have more topics) but you will also study unit 3 in addition to this. After sitting all 3 exams in your second year you will be given your A level qualification based on how well you do in these 3 exams.
  • Some schools have opted to ignore the AS exams and study the full A level only sitting the exams in the second year. This is because AS results do not count towards your full A level psychology grade. Other schools will let students sit their AS exams and then choose whether to continue into the second year or not for the full A level.

Be sure to ask your school/teacher what it is they are doing so you know how the course will break down for you.


  • The new specification consists of 2 exam papers for AS students.
  • For A level students, the linear specification requires A level students to sit 3 exam papers.
