June 2024 Psychology subject update

Sun Jun 16 23:00:00 UTC 2024

Welcome to your Pearson Edexcel Psychology June 2024 subject update.

Hello colleagues,

With GCSE and A Level exams completed for psychology, I hope that teachers reading this have a chance now to reflect on the positive impact you have had on your learners this year. This month we begin to look ahead to the new school year, and Year 12 students are making their plans for careers and further study beyond A Levels.

This update therefore focuses on reflections on the recent exam series, and planning for the future. Along with information on our exam feedback survey for teachers and some details relating to results days, we have training events coming up for GCSE, A Level and IAL psychology and information from the British Psychological Society which may be of interest to Year 12 students.

For updates on the qualificaiton(s) you deliver, please see the relevant section below.

Best wishes, 

Tim Lawrence

Psychology Subject Advisor

Exam Feedback

As we come towards the end of the exam series, we would like you to share your feedback on this year's papers.  We wish to provide students with the best possible experience, and your insights are crucial in helping us achieve this goal.

If you are a teacher whose students have taken any of our externally set assignments or exams in the May/June 2024 series, we  are eager to hear your thoughts.

Your feedback will play a vital role in shaping the future of our qualifications and assessments.

To access our results services and secure materials, and you will need an Edexcel Online login (EOL) to access this. EOL accounts are managed by the centre Exams Officer / EOL Administrator. If, as a teacher, you need an EOL login please talk to your Exams Officer who will be able to get you set up. 

Please note that as an additional step for securing customer and learner data we have now introduced our new app-based multi-factor authentication (MFA) for all users of Edexcel Online, replacing the email-based MFA. The app is now mandatory to access Edexcel Online via the Pearson Portal. If you've not done so already, you'll need to download the Pearson authenticator app to a smart device (such as a smart phone) to continue to access Edexcel online via the Pearson Portal.

GCSE Psychology

02 July 2024 at 16:00-17:30 BST

This training is designed for teachers who are due to start teaching our GCSE course for the first time next academic year, or who are relatively new to the course (for example those coming to the end of their first year teaching it). 

Although we do not offer an International GCSE course in psychology, our UK GCSE course is available to international centres and is straightforward to deliver as all the assessment is through the two exam papers.

These free online CPD sessions (module 1 and module 2) scheduled for October run from 9.00-11.00 UK time making them easier for teachers in Asia to attend, but UK based teachers available at this time are equally welcome!

BPS manifesto and careers resources

The relevance of psychology to society is a theme explored in our GCSE and A Level courses. Year 12 students in particular may be interested in the UK general election, and the election manifesto published by the BPS, highlighting arguments for making more use of psychology in plans for improving the nation.

As they consider university applications and other career pathways, Year 12 students may also be interested in the free careers resources on the BPS website, in the 'careers' section of their 'teachers' toolkit'.
