There's no specific requirements for a level subjects
Not even psychology
But if you're still worried check the university websites

there's no specific requirements, though some unis may ask for a science a level. best to do your own research and pick subjects you think you'd enjoy the most.

Main requirement is to learn how to spell the name of the subject you're interested in.
Some universities like you to have a science. Others say maths is an advantage.
The vast majority, though, it's pretty much a free for all. You don't even have to have studied A Level Psychology!
The first term of my degree was boring as anything, because it was pretty much bringing people up to standard who have never studied it before.

Funnily enough, universities don't tend to even need psychology A Level! This is because psychology at university is VERY different to how it is at A Level.
Usually, they ask for one to two of the following A Levels: biology/chemistry/physics/maths/psychology.
So, if you plan to study psychology next year, great! But it may help to study another science - which you probably will based on your post.

Good luck

Hi,

I have just finished my Psychology degree. Psychology was not required although I did do that for Alevel. I would say that an essay subject (psychology, history, English etc) would be helpful as this is a skill you will need to develop for the course. Depending on the type of psychology the uni teaches (mine is quite focused on social psychology), you may benefit from having a science/maths subject as there is some maths and biology in the bachelors degree usually.

Most uni's will assume that students may not have studied psychology before so ultimately, I would suggest choosing what you want to do and what you enjoy. If you can do the Alevel, it would help you decide if you like the subject.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions!

Duncan
