    You definitely can since 1st year generally involves getting everyone to level of knowledge but you'd be at an advantage if you did take it

    Sometimes you may need a few science a levels or B+ GCSE maths. But as other people mentioned psychology a level isn't seen as being a good course. You will want to do some background reading in psychology if your not taking it at a level though, look here for some ideas: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2739866

    I'm in the same boat, going in a few weeks, did you find it any more difficult in comparison to those who did take it?

    You don't need to take psychology but most unis like you to study at least one science.
