Okay so the entry requirements for A-Levels for Psychology is as follows:
Standard academic entry requirements: AAA. Minimum academic entry requirements: ABB. Other mandatory requirements: ALL applicants must have A-level OR AS level OR GCSE Mathematics at B or above. BSc: Two A-level subjects from Mathematics, Psychology or other science subjects (or Mathematics plus one science subject). MA Arts: Two A-level arts, humanities or language subjects. MA SocSci: Two A-level arts, humanities or language subjects.
Does this mean that I need maths a-level to even stand a chance? I'm so confused!

Nope it means there are 4 courses.

For all of them you need GCSE or GCE Maths.

For the BSC you need A level maths and a science or 2 science subjects or psyhcology and another science.

There are 2 additional MA's which just require arts and humanities subjects. It doesnt confirm whether these are one year courses or longer, sometimes they can be four, but id suspect the content of them is very different to the BSC which will be more scientific. Just call them and ask.

Thank you!
So for the BSc you're saying you need A-level maths or do you mean:
• need A level maths and a science OR 2 science subjects OR psyhcology and another science
• need A level maths (with either a science/2 sciences/ psychology + another science) - aka. need maths

Would Chemistry, psychology + geography be okay? (They count geo as a science)

Break it down:

1. There is a Maths hurdle. You need A level or AS or GCSE (95%+ uni students do) .
Presumably you have at least GCSE?
2. Then there is a science criteria, which requires two, but Psychology counts as one as well. You have Psychology and Chemistry so you pass that hurdle.

That means you pass both hurdles and meet the criteria.

The only difference between the courses is the other subjects you take around it. Glasgow requires you to take usually three subjects in your first and second year (I think this is reduced to two in your second year for psychology, but I'm not certain) and if you do the BSc you'll need to take courses mostly in the College of Science & Engineering, and the MAs mean you'll have to take courses mostly in the College of Social Sciences or College of Arts depending on which route you go down.
