VCE Psychology is widely recognised as a “content-heavy” subject, and for good reason - one of the main challenges in the subject is remembering everything for the exam! But with interesting content ranging from learning and memory, to sleep and mental health, Psychology can be an enjoyable and rewarding subject.
