Which a levels should i choose? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I want to study psychology at degree level and am hoping to become a forensic psychologist. I've read in many places that you do not need to take psychology for a levels to go on to become a psychologist? Is this true? I want to take Maths, Biology, English Literature and cannot decide on my last choice (possible Philosophy & Ethics, Further Maths, Law or Psychology if I need to take it)

    Although you've heard that psychology isn't necessary I think you should do it just in case..it will prove beneficial for you only

    I don't think it is mandatory to take Psychology as some schools don't offer it, but you at least need to take Biology and perhaps Chemistry if you aren't. So the A levels you have chosen to take right now should be fine, but it might be better to take Psychology as well.
    You can look at what the universities you want to go to require for studying Psychology and go from there.
