I'm on course to get a mid to high merit in my Psychology MSC. Will this be enough to genuinely compete for a funded Psychology PHD? It's a conversion course so as my undergrad degree is not in Psychology related field even, am concerned i need to do even better in masters?

You don't need a distinction to get a psychology PhD but it would certainly help your chances. All the usual factors like previous experience, your current institution/programme, any research component, references, personal statement, etc. are all relevant.

Have you been applying for PhDs this winter? If you apply this year your commitment to psych will be reflected in taking the MSc, but your result need not be a factor.
