I'm under the impression that Psychology is a Social Science subject, just like Sociology which I'm currently studying. A humanities subject would either be History or Geography, as those are essential if you wish to gain the English Baccalaureate.

It actually really does matter! The only reason I could get onto my medical based course at uni was because my psychology a level counted as a social science. If it wasn't a science I couldn't have applied!

Having said that, there is the odd uni that does not count it as a science but it is uncommon nowadays.
