Very STEM dominated
Social worker or counselling BPS accredited (i.e. BA over BSc) not needed from my understanding
Clin psych very much need a BSc

Most universities will ask for 2+ STEM with psych being one of those for most places
Honestly the stats is fine, it’s almost all computational as opposed to learning formulas, they teach it from complete beginner level
Honestly I think you may struggle with some aspects like neuroscience if you’re not too STEM competent, but again they teach from a level playing field!

i did psychology, sociology + history at a level and i do BSc Psychology. honestly, it’s fine. they go over everything in first year that you did at a level in terms of the science/maths. to be honest i think you’ll be fine. everything you need to know they will teach you. just work hard!
