Is it possible to rely on the UCAS essay for uni acceptance?
I want to take psychology but the requirements for IB include HLs in biology, chemistry, physics, psychology or mathematics. Out of those I only take biology and mathematics in SL. I might take a-level psychology as a side subject outside of school. Is there any chance of it being possible?

Whether or not you have a good PS if you don't meet the entry requirements you don't have much of a chance.

Yes that's fine. I'm not that familiar with IB but I did study psych at UCL. You need at least 1, preferably 2 science/maths (psychology included) at HL so you've more than met the requirements in that sense.
I would personally not take the A-level. It's not that useful for degree, it's not required and the time spent self studying would be better spent making sure you get top marks in all your IB subjects *
