Hi there,

I achieved grades ABC at A Level and would like to study Psychology in 2018 and I am currently on a gap year right now.

Will unis accept grades ABC for Psychology with entry requirements of AAB/ABB?

My A grade was in Psychology, B in Photography and C in Maths. I also have a B grade in AS Biology.

Hi, sorry you didn't get any responses But I have the same predicted grades and am planning on studying psychology at uni. And I'm having trouble finding a uni that takes a C without the quality of the university being too bad. So what uni did you go to in the end?

Its possible - but there is a big difference between accepting someone with known grades below the requirements, and someone with lower predictions who still might achieve those requirements in August. Any 'high grade' Uni could rightly maintain that you should now be resitting A levels rather than taking a gap year.

If like the OP you have a low grade Maths result that will also be an issue - Maths is a vital skills for Psych because of stats work. Whilst most Unis specify only a GCSE Maths grade,a low achieved A Level grade would be concerning. The other important point is what grade you have achieved in Psych/another science - having a high grade in an unconnected subject does not compensate for this.

I suggest you email some Unis with a complete list of your qualifications/grades - both GCSEs and A levels - and ask if they would consider you. You will find that Unis asking for UCAS points rather than specific grades are more likely to say Yes.
