    Hi guys, I'm looking at universities having entry req of either AAB or ABB (or both so AAB/ABB) for BSc Psychology (c800) that have a good reputation generally or for Psychology in particular, hopefully one of them will make up my insurance for uni assuming one accepts me, thank you.

    Also, what is the best league table to look at or is it better looking at them all and looking for any trends etc? And for that matter, what reliable league tables exist?

    Thanks a lot

    Cardiff, Lancaster and Royal Holloway are all AAB (I think) and quite well respected for psych/generally.

    York typically ask for AAB (usually require two science based A Levels and a B in GCSE maths)

    To be honest, most university league tables are terrible. My only advice regarding them is completely ignore the Guardian Psychology rankings, outside of the top ten they seem to have chosen them wearing a blindfold and using a dart. The Times probably have the best one...

    Require a C in GCSE Math:

    Sheffield - AAB
    Southampton - AAB/ABB
    Bangor - BBC +
    Aberdeen - BBC +

    B in GCSE Math (or Science/English)

    Cardiff - AAA/AAB
    Royal Holloway - AAB
    Nottingham - AAB
    Kent - AAB
    Leeds - AAB

    I think the best ones on there are probably RHUL, Cardiff and Sheffield.
