    Some courses don't allow it as an A level, I guess they just see more maths as superfluous.
    Though further maths is a facilitating subject...

    Really? I have physics at AS level but in the UK the third a-level can be pretty much anything

    Yep, in some east European / south Asian countries they prefer Physics for some reason. Medical Physics is a thing, apparently. Either way, I've still kept Math and Phys side-by-side for A2 hoping to drop one in the near future

    How hard is psychology a level
    I did Psychology A-Level and obtained a grade A. I would say that it was difficult but enjoyable.

    - There is a lot of science/biology that I did not expect, also some maths with statistics
    - In general a lot of information is taught, by my A2 exam I was a bit shocked at the amount of stuff I would have to revise

    But if you dedicate enough time to it, obtaining a good grade is very possible.
