Joseph Sparks

22nd August 2016

Last week was one of most stressful weeks in the teaching calendar, with the publication of the 2016 A-Level results on Thursday 18th August. While the week was mostly centred on A-Level results and analysing the impact of the new linear A-Level, the tutor2u Psych team has been busy publishing the first of their new resources, ready for September.


Also, the first section of our new IB Biological Psychology study notes has now been uploaded, including the key assumptions of the biological approach, plus the first of our key studies, looking at McGuffin et al., (1996). To read these study notes, click here.


The first section of our new Forensic Psychology study notes has now been uploaded. To read this new series, including the Problems in Defining Crime and Ways of Measuring Crime, click here.
