    Hi

    I am currently studying Psychology, Biology and PE at A Level. I would like to apply to a Russell Group Uni to study Psychology - Have I ruined my chances by taking PE?

    No, you haven't ruined your chances. Most unis (including Russell Group unis) only require one or two science A Levels for psychology, which biology and psychology would cover

    Not really. I took health and social care AS and got into UCL, Durham, RHUL and interview at Oxford.

    Plus I wouldn't be unduly worried if you didn't get into a Russell Group university

    I did some work experience in a psych hospital

    But for PS the real thing to add is your reading around the subject. For me that was online uni lectures, EPQ, essay competition and some books

    I've just done the Cambridge Essay Competition funnily enough.. I've started an online course and noticed that the UCL have Psychology workshops running the summer but they haven't released dates yet but I'm hoping to book those..
