    BA is an arts degree and BSc a science one. It's likely that the BSc courses place more emphasis on biopsychology and the BA more on social.

    As long as both are accredited by the BPS then there won't be much difference. My degree is a BA but it's definitely heavily scientific. Look at the specific modules to see which course you'd enjoy more.

    B.A. is Batchelor of Arts and B.Sc. is Batchelor of Science. It depends on the University as to which degree is awarded for which course, but the difference is largely irrelevant - Cambridge for example awards only B.A.s as a first degree.
