    Hi. I am interested in studying Psychology at Warwick. The course does not require any specific A Levels as long as you meet the science and maths GCSE requirements (which I do). The course asks for A level results of AAB and predictions of ABB or above. I am aware however that preference will be given to students from a scientific background. Do I stand a chance of being accepted with predicted A2 grades of AAB in English Literature, Classical Civilisation and Politics?I also will have an AS level in RS and reasonable GCSE results, 7 A*/As and 3Bs. Psychology GCSE and A Level weren't offered at my school so I am doing the GCSE independently this years alongside my A2s.

    I'm thinking of applying for psychology at warwick too and I think you stand a good chance because you have strong GCSEs and the subjects you do now prove you have good essay writing skills which they are looking for. I'd say don't worry so much on the science part because it's only really an issue if it was a requirement and compulsory, which it isn't.

    Thanks! Do you think it's worth attempting Biology or Psychology A level in one year? (U6) alongside two other A2s?

    My school doesn't offer Psychology but I could self teach it in my frees and ask a biology teacher to help me with the science topics.

    It's not important to do psychology so I would say only do it if you think it won't affect your other subjects. Maybe you could just find a lot of psychology related extra curricular like volunteering in a charity or doing a psychology blog, which I'm doing. I hope that helps and good luck!
