What is the conference about? This conference will help students with their A-level revision as well as broadening their understanding of some key areas in psychology. Cara Flanagan is one of the leading A-level Psychology textbook authors with years of experience as an examiner.  She will talk to you about how to get the best out of your revision and how to improve your grades.  Students will also hear from leading academics who will talk about their latest research and its relevance to real life.  These talks will be engaging and interactive and will also include demonstrations of cutting edge research tools.  You will also hear about what it is like to study Psychology at university and get some inside tips on how to make the most of your application.
