5 is equivalent to a C right? That should be fine, although you may need a B in maths.

You need to be able to write good coherent essays.

You need to write good essays so as long as you can do that you're fine. Your school may have it's own restrictions like mine did

Do you mean for A Level, or are you looking further ahead at studying it at university?

If it's at A Level, it's just the same as any other essay based subject, in that you need to write coherently. I would say that if you were looking forward to degree level then writing is more important, but so long as you have a pass at GCSE you wouldn't be denied.

I would recommend at least a B in GCSE maths though. There is a lot of stats work in psychology (I have a degree in it) and although the stats are quite simple at A Level, you could still struggle if you don't have a firm grasp of statistics.

I studied psychology at a level and got an A and B at English Lang and lit. I honestly don't think you'd struggle, yeah there are essay style questions but once you understand the structure they are looking for you'll be absolutely fine. Personally I would say, at least for the exam board I did, they didn't mark us too much on written structure but it was just a matter of memorizing all the facts and evaluation points .
