Our teacher told us that the 'new' higher was commencing this year so I am wondering whether it will be much different to that of previous years - in which case the material I already have may be missing out/giving info which i do/don't need.

We were recommended to get a textbook too - I'll find out the name and stuff for you if you want..

If u go to ur nearest large WH Smith store then beside the past papers (well that where they are in Hamilton and Glasgow Argyle Street anyway!) there should be a higher psychology textbook for the new higher, I suggest u check this out!
Secondly some questions:
Is Psychology interesting?
Is it easy/difficult?
Where can I do free courses in it( if you know any of course)?
Do u have to write huge dissertations and stuff?
Any other details provided would be helpful also

Yes - I find it extremely interesting and I'm enjoying the course so far. Basically if you're interested in thought processes and what makes people act the way they do, it's a good course, and will help you gain a deeper understanding of people.
I'm finding it pretty easy so far. We're just reading through our notes in our own time, and making our own notes from those.
I'm doing mine through Open Learning from Telford College - I'm not sure whether the school had to pay anything for this.
Nope - or at least I hope not
Our first assignment is worth 15 marks.
Hope this helps - if you want any more details, feel free to PM or post on this thread and I'll try and help.

We got last year's notes before the summer so I had done almost 60 pages of that course, then last week we were told that there was a new course, so Ive got to start again
We're meant to hand in the assignment for it to be posted away tomorrow but we are allowed until Tuesday to do it, so thats what Im doing.
What are the good textbooks for it?

It gives you some notes on some major units of Higher Psychology.
I mainly used the hand-outs I was given and re-wrote my own notes based on the hand-outs. I also made flash cards with key words and their definitions ie socialisation + definition.
Don't fret, Psychology is easy to pass if you just learn all the theories and a study for each one! I got a top B pass this year
