1/2 and 3/4 content

I want to drop psychology but there's nothing to pick up.

Is psychology's content a lot harder in 34 than 12? and is any of the 12 content relevant to 34. I heard that it's not, apart from the research method

You can compare the dot-points in the study design, but as far as I know, 1/2 and 3/4 are not too similar.
I don't think 3/4 is that much harder than 1/2, but it will seem like it if you really don't want to do it.
If I were you, I'd talk to a VCE coordinator about another other options, what persisting with psychology would be like, or the possibility of having a smaller subject load.
Good luck!

Yeah, there's no overlap aside from the research methods. Source: did 3/4 Psych last year without the 1/2

There actually is a little overlap in Units 1&2 and 3&4, only brief mentions, though.
In Unit 1, we learned a Unit 4 topic which was the 4P Factor Model, which is basically like an alternate/extended form of the biopsychosocial framework. But there is plenty of variety in Units 3&4, and is more than just a mere extension from 1&2. I wouldn't say it's necessarily harder, but there is plenty to learn if you really do like to study how the mind works.

And of course, if it's a subject you don't want to do, then, please drop it. As Jordan Peterson said (and I'm paraphrasing), there's no point in suffering through anything if there is no useful desired result at the end. The semester is coming to a close soon, so try to slog through the exams and if you so wish, change your subjects.
