Can I still do Psychology? Someone help!Watch
The statistics in Psychology are mostly procedural, there is very little calculation you have to do. It will depend on whether they teach you to do the stats by hand - all statistics can be done using SPSS on the computer, so you do not need to know how to do them by hand (and when you come to do actual research you will use SPSS) but some courses like to show you the process so that you understand them better. Even in that case, the maths is easy, the difficulty is getting your head around the different terms.
Your best bet would be to retake the maths GCSE.
For a few years now i've always had a passion for psychology, scientific research and learning about human behaviour, however, something is holding me back from doing a psychology degree. I acheived a grade A at GCSE Psychology and I am on track for an A* in A level Psychology but only acheived a grade C in Maths GCSE as this was a subject I struggled with, although I was only three marks off a grade B and did a higher tier paper. I have already visited one university who said they would simply not take me as I would struggle with psychology at degree level due to the maths element. Whats made me more confused is that another university said the psychology degree is not heavy on maths and only consists of statistical tests, some of which are touched on at A level and I coped with fine. Will I not be able to do a degree or will I without this B, someone help!!!!!
