    Do an Access course which best matches the A level requirements for those degrees. If for example a university asks for Biology at A level then you should do an Access course which lets you study Biology at level 3. You need to ask your college how many credits the Access to Psychology course has, it will vary.

    I aim to study Psychology at universities such as Manchester, Bristol, KCL, or I aim too for Cambridge's Psychological and Behavioural Sciences degree.

    Which Access course should I do?

    An Access to Humanities and Social Science, Access to Science, or the Access to Psychology route?

    Some universities, like Bristol, say they'd be looking for a minimum of 12 credits in Science in the Access course. Would an Access to Psychology course have that many Science credits?
    You should check with your local college offering the Access to HE to find out how many credits are available for you to study in each unit and which subjects are available on each pathway, and then base your decision on that.

    One of the Access pathways at my college was made up of Biology, Psychology and Sociology units and with 15 credits in each of these subjects. Maybe try and find something similiar to that?
