    hi, im not at the stage yet where im applying to universities or anything, but i just wanted to know, for psychiatry do you have to study things like chemistry, biology, maths, things like that? i just wanted to know if there was any sort of way i could not do them and still get in psychiatry seeing as the chemistry knowledge needed for psychiatry is totaly differeny to gcse and as level chemistry.

    To do psychiatry you have to be a doctor first - so yes (generally) you do need chemistry (even if it's only to get into medical school).

    At the end of the day, the chemistry, biology, whatever else needed for A level bears little or no resemblance to the actual practice of almost any form of medicine.
