Different universities have different requirements. You need to look at the websites for universities you fancy.

Psychology and psychiatry are not the same thing. Psychology is a subject and through studying that subject you could progress into roles as a therapist/psychologist/etc. Psychiatry is a branch of medicine so you have to train as a doctor and specialise in mental health.

Psychology degrees vary in the grades they ask for from A*AA at Oxbridge to idk probably C's and D's at lower universities. Some universities ask for a science to be one of your A level subjects (and pscyhology itself may or may not count as a science) or to have a decent Maths/English GCSE grade. You need to look at your grades and then look at various universities and see what grades they are asking for + check you meet the subject requirements.

To expand on what doodle said,

A psychologist is who you see for a therapy session
A psychiatrist would prescribe you with drugs for bipolar or schizophrenia for example
