More resources for A-level students

New podcasts and classroom posters are available for download from the OCR exam board, following two events held in association with the British Psychological Society in January.

The resources relate to the core studies part of OCR’s new syllabus starting in September 2008, but all psychology students and teachers will hopefully find them useful.
