I haven’t studied maths since gcse and wanted to prep a bit before I got to uni for like maths so any advise on what areas are best to focus on and what I can ignore? Like I just wanna refresh myself and maybe prepare for the new stuff so I don’t have a meltdown when I get there because I know I’m very slow when it comes to maths

the main component of maths in psych is statistical tests. they'll teach you everything but if you wanted to get a head start, study tests like the t-test, Spearman's rank, Mann-Whitney U, Wilcoxon, ANOVA etc. they're all based on statistical significance, so looking into p values, proportions, confidence intervals, confidence levels and stuff. i wouldn't worry too much about it, you'll probably use a statistical package at uni for your tests!
