Some of the biology stuff is useful to remember (neurons and the brain in general) as there's a whole topic on biopsychology (FYI biopsychology is supposed to be the hardest topic :eek:). You won't need chemistry or physics.

Imo awful imo science and got 3 6s in science through some hard work but I take Psychology Alevel on the AQA board and there is only a small topic in year 1 about biopsychology that is easy to understand if it's broken down correctly. Even if your teacher isn't the best there is lots of online resources that make it easy.

I believe there is a longer topic in it in year 2 but again its Biopsychology and I think there is many resources out there to help.

Finally, when science is used it focuses on biology. I've yet to use physics or chemistry so dont let be a barrier. if your not confident in science, it will just be a few sections you may have to revise more but I believe that you will be completely fine.
Good luck and if you take it, I'm sure you'll love it
