I know that you have to get a grade 6 in biology to do psychology for A-level but i really messed up with my organisation and didn't do as much revision for biology as i should have. Basically i don't think i've got a good grade and i was wondering if you think you might be allowed to do a subject with some kind of appeal?

Apparently sociology is somewhat similar to psychology

Yeah i think so but i think it's more to do with society and psychology is more about an individual person

Not really, I’ve done psychology for GCSE, it’s about behaviour and the mind

that's weird, in my school to do A level Psychology you only need a 4 in maths and english and a 5 in one of the humanities subject like history, geography or religious studies

I don't know if it would be the reason but I go to a grammar school

if you put in a good enough argument as to why you will be able to cope with psychology a level (and i think high grades across other subjects would defo help) then i don't see why not. don't underestimate yourself, you probably did better than you think

Thank you so much but I definitely know I didn't perform well because I ended up not revising much but ill just hope for the best.

Nothing to lose from appealing if you get maybe a 5, but do you think you will appeal if you get a 4 or less?
You should have thought of this at least 6 months ago.

If you intend to do psych at uni, then they dont have any subject requirements normally. There may be some preference to showing some science or math ability. Ps you do know Psych as a subject is saturated with graduates and you are unlikely to get a job directly related to it?

The job I want to do is dependent 2 of my A-levels. Psychology will also help but I'm mostly doing it because I think I'd enjoy it. Also do the bit saying I should have thought about this 6 months ago, 6 months ago I never thought I'd have to think about this because everything was going well until some personal issues came up during and before my exams and unfortunately I struggled to keep on top of things.

No idea what you mean by your first bit, but dont think its relevant to me.
What was the personal stuff? You could potentially use that as part of your appeal.
You also dont have your result yet, so I do suggest once you have figured out your course of action, chased it up with the school, then you put it to one side and dont fret about it.

If you have done psychology for GCSE then your school may allow you to do A-Level psychology. You could ask your teachers what the options are. I'm pretty sure you will be fine. Good luck in getting your results!
