Hey,

I'm looking for some advice, I am applying for psychology in the 2021 series, but I feel my qualifications may be a huge problem, as I only do two A-Levels and a UAL extended diploma (equivalent to 3 A-Levels/ BTEC extended diploma), in which I am predicted a Merit.
In my two A-Levels, I am predicted an A and B.
(I am also eligible for a contextual offer)
I really wanted to apply to Sussex, but I know how many people apply here, so do you think it is likely I will not be accepted, given I don't have 3 A-Levels?

I would be really grateful if somebody could give me guidance on this or recommend places I could apply to.


Thank you!!

Wow very similar! What course? I got an offer back from Bristol about 5 weeks ago so hopefully, you should hear soon! I read on another thread that someone got an offer from Southampton, I've been sent an offer email but it's not been put onto track which is annoying! Heard from Sussex (apart from an acknowledgment email.

Hello, the typical offer for studying Psychology degree at Sussex University is AAB-ABB at A Level, or equivalent qualifications. This means that your UAL extended diploma, combined with your A levels would be more than sufficient for you to meet the entry requirements as long as you get high enough grades. Since, you qualify for contextual offer which is BBB-BBC, a Merit in UAL extended Diploma, and A and B in your A Levels would satisfy the criteria. So, it does not matter that you do not do 3 A Levels! However, do make sure that you have a Maths GCSE at a grade of 6 (B) or above, as this is one of the compulsory requirements. I hope this gives you some clarity. Let me know if you have any questions

Best Wishes,
Kasia (4th Year Medical Neuroscience Student MSCI with a Year Abroad)

Hiya, You don't happen to know where offers will be given out? I've been waiting 7 weeks now and am yet to hear back; I applied for the Psychology with Education course.

Hello, no unfortunately I am not involved in processing the applications. If you are concerned, I would suggest that you contact either Sussex Undergraduate Admissions ([email protected], 01273 678416), and/or the School of Psychology ([email protected]). However, the fact you have not heard back from the uni yet is mostly likely nothing to worry about - the universities in general have just been slower in sending out the offers this Year than normally due to Covid-related issues. I hope you get a decision soon!

Hiya, I applied for Psychology in Education on 11th September and still haven’t heard anything, I do have an acknowledgment email though. I actually emailed to ask for an update about my application and was told that there was a delay in settling the new students in and they were not yet processing new applications :/ sounds like it may be a while!! Its really annoying as this is the only uni I’m waiting to hear back from. I’ve got an offer from York though so hopefully you will hear something soon!

Thanks for replying! Bit worried how I haven't even had an acknowledgment email yet as it has been a week. I have had offers from York and Leeds too. Where else are you applying?
