So I'm looking to do biology and psychology at A level after my gcses but the the course I want to do at uni (paramedic science) requires you have at least two science A levels, so I was wondering if psychology counts as one.
I know I could always do chemistry but It's gonna be a pain doing a subject I don't really enjoy just for the sake of it.

Any help would be appreciated x

It's a social science but won't be acceptable as a science for paramedic science unfortunately. Chem is your better bet.

Some unis do accept psychology as a science, I would definitely check out the websites.

It can be considered a science because it practises the scientific method but many argue that its not because of its abstract nature and the inability to reproduce experiments (e.g what makes me happy, may not make you happy). Thus the fact that Psychology is not something established (which includes constants and laws), excludes it from the traditional sciences.
