    Thank you, and I guess I didn't proof read my question as I've spelt it correctly the rest other times in the text.

    They don't and neither do King's.

    AFAIK neither Imperial or Kings offer psychology degrees. It may be beneficial to do a science like biology at A Level as well, but best to look at the individual university A Level requirements that you want to go to

    Those A-levels wouldn't rule you out of the majority of psychology courses, but there will be a few that will certainly have a preference for a science A-level or two. For example, UCL psychology is a tough course to get into, and though they may not specify that they would like biology or another science at A-level, there will undoubtedly be competing applicants going head-to-head with you that have the same grades as you (or better) in science A-levels. By all means give a top course or two a try, but keep that in mind.

    For Royal Holloway, I can't see you having a problem with those A-levels as long as you get the right grades. Same could be said for quite a lot of universities of similar-ish standards, I'd think, as long as you pair the right grades up with a decent all round application.

    They're fine but you might have trouble getting in UCL or RHUL with those.

    And kings doesn't do psych!
