Could I get into the best Uni with these Alevel subjects? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Psychology, Sociology, Politics and English Lit. (As you can see, written subjects are my best subjects. I honestly could never guarantee myself even a pass grade if i had taken mathematics or a core science so let's leave that out of it.) Psychology, English Lit and Politics I know are classed as somewhat "academic" and reasonably respected subjects. Sociology may not be highly regarded but works AMAZINGLY with Psychology! I do not regret it.

    With this in mind:
    I hope to go for an undergraduate Psychology degree in a top (or russell) uni and then a Masters in either Social Psychology or Educational Psychology. Checking UCL's website, there are no real requirements for subjects needed for a Psychology degree but there "prefer" two sciences. Other top russell group uni's have no preference at all for Psychology, so does this mean as long as I achieve top A/A* grades in my subjects that I would stand a chance?

    Edit: My title is supposed to say 'Best Unis' not 'Uni'. Excuse that

    You answered your own question at the end there. If unis don't say they require any particular subject, then guess what - they don't require any particular subject.
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
