    As LifeIsFine has said; generally all universities require at A Level is a science subject (you've covered this by taking Psychology and Biology) but require a minimum of a B in GCSE Maths (Oxford require an A*/A; Durham require a B; MMU require a C) So I'd advise looking at the entry requirements of the universities you're wanting to apply to as they can vary

    It would help with the statistics aspect of the course. Though they'll teach you everything you need from scratch, or they'll give you extra maths work to study for (if it's a particularly mathsy course).

    Wouldn't hurt to take it as an AS then drop it.
