Free Topic Essays: Psychopathology | tutor2u Psychology

It’s day 2 of the tutor2u Psychology resource giveaway and today we are providing everyone with a free set of ten Topic Essays for Psychopathology.

Many people have heard me use the phrase ‘Essays matter. Full stop.’ This is because I firmly believe that good essay writing is a skill and that essays can make all the difference in A Level Psychology.

In the June 2017 A Level Psychology exams, essays were worth 51% of the overall grade. The average score for all of the essays was approximately 50%; this means that students were scoring, on average, 8 out of 16 on every essay question. In the Paper 3 exam there were three 16 mark essays and two 8 mark essays. This demonstrates the importance of essays and how providing support for students is crucial in this area.

To download your free set of Psychopathology Topic Essays, click 'add to cart' below.

We hope that these essays will provide something for everyone. Anyone who has attended a tutor2u CPD event will know that I strongly urge teachers not to provide students with a sample essay for every question, but to use these as part of your teaching and learning.

These essays can be uploaded to your school’s virtual learning environment and photocopied for you and your students.

Helen and I hope you enjoy using these topic essays. For more topic essays or other products visit the tutor2u store.
