    Hi, I'm wondering that, do you really need science subjects to get Bsc degree for Psychology? My subjects are Psychology, Sociology and Business Studies. I was worried that I might not get to do Psychology because of the A level subjects I took. And If I can't get Bsc, where can I get into BA psychology courses? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

    as can be seen below not every uni requires an additional science so you need to research unis thoroughly before applying. I assume you are studying in year 12 if so consider biology or maths as level next year. you could also stay another year and do these as an additional a level or as a gap year or possibly unis might offer a foundation course to give you the appropriate science skills. check the entry requirements on ucas and apply only to unis that don't require an additional science a level
    The University of Birmingham will make offers based on the following qualifications individually and when they are combined with others

    • GCE A Level
    • AAA - AAB Typical offer
    • Specific subjects excluded for entry:Applied Science and Citizenship Studies and Communication & Culture and Critical Thinking and General Studies and Science in Society and World Development.
    • Information:Typical offer of AAB for applicants taking at least one of the following: Psychology, Biology, Human Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics or Statistics. The typical offer for applicants who are not taking any of those subjects is AAA.

    It's really not worth doing a BA (unless oxbridge as this is just a formality) as it won't be BPS accredited.
