    i achieved average GCSE results (B in math and science). I've failed my first year of college with AS:
    Biology- U
    Business- E
    Psychology- D

    I still really want a career in criminal psychology.
    would i be able to do BTEC Applied science (forensic science) level 3, with A-level Psychology. I think this would be better because the BTEC is only course work and in psychology unit 1 i got a B, it's unit 2 that i got an E in making it overall a D.

    Then after getting this, i could go to university to study psychology?
    Instead of uni is there any psychology apprenticeships about that could get a career in criminal psychology?

    Thanks

    To be any sort of psychologist you need a degree. You can be a counsellor without a psychology degree although you need other qualifications.

    However, being any sort of psychologist (clinical/educational/occupational) requires a 2.1 psychology degree and lots of work experience and demand far outstrips supply for positions so only the best are taken. Therefore if you do decide to do a psychology degree its very likely that it won't be able to take you anywhere within psychology.
