IB Psychology Course Content
Ok….IB psychology has more content than my Uncle Donald has back hair (trust me…a small mouse can get lost in there). But if you understand the following concepts, it becomes a whole lot easier:
1. You will know ALL the possible questions before the test
2. There is NO ONE right way to answer a question. I guess there is a wrong way, but if you can support your claim with evidence you will be awarded marks (I really just want to say points….damn IB). So do NOT think that the suggestions that are made on this website are the only way to go. There are definitely better ways to answer the questions…so get off your lazy ass and do some work for yourself.
3. You can be selective in what you have to learn. In other words, you can actually hedge your bets and focus on aspects you (and your teacher) think will be on the exam.
The IB Psychology curriculum is divided up into 3 mandatory units called The Core and 5 optional topics (you need to know one of the five for SL and two of the five for HL).
