|Psychology A Level
I came to The Henley College from Berkhamsted School. I chose to study Psychology A Level because it was very different from all my other subjects and I've always been intrigued by the mind and brain. I find the idea of trying to read people fascinating. Psychology is something I have never studied before, I was partly worried about it as I was unsure how I would settle into such an unfamiliar course. However, I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I love learning about topics that I can apply to my own personal life. For example, learning about memory techniques, it has become very useful when revising for my exams!
My enthusiasm for the psychology rapidly increased as the weeks went on and now I have become so passionate about it that I'm looking at universities where I can study psychology or neuroscience after college! It has always been my dream to become a doctor so hopefully in the not so distant future this dream will become a reality.
