I'm in 10th grade ICSE/ISC curriculum and really really reallyyy want to do psychology OR neuropsychology or neuroscience in college as an undergrad degree. My dream is undergrad neuroscience degree in Kings College London, but I obviously need some other colleges to apply too. If I could couple the degree in psychology with something like HR, management or entrepreneurship, that would be amazing!

My subject choices for my freshman and sophmore years (9th and 10th grade) were Math, English Literature, English Language, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Social Studies, French and Computers.

For my junior and senior years of high school (11th and 12th grade) I want to drop math because I am terrible (!!!) at it. So that would mean that my subjects would be Bio, Chem, Phy, Eng Literature, Eng Language and Psychology.

Are these subjects enough for me to be considered my colleges in UK, or Australia for a degree in psychology, or neuroscience?

Those subjects do look good, but I would advise you to keep maths, or take at least introductory statistics if that's an option. Maths/statistics is not usually a requirement, but is helpful for psychology as courses do have research methods and statistics components - and I assume the same is true for neuroscience.

Definitely keep Biology and Psychology, and as long as your grades are good you shouldn't have a problem
