You 100% don't need A Level Psychology to do a Psychology degree. Some people struggle with the Maths involved in a Psychology degree but it's doable. It's a good idea to do some reading around Psychology to make sure it's what you want to do.

Most on my course at undergrad hadn’t studied it previously. You’ll be fine

Hi account8037,

I agree with that the others say above - plenty of people do Psychology degrees without having studied previously! Often, the first few modules of a Psychology course are introductory modules to different areas of Psychology to get everyone up to the same speed and equip you with the skills you need to succeed in the course. You can see a typical module breakdown of a Psychology course here: https://arden.ac.uk/our-courses/dist...psychology-bps

You could start some wider reading before your degree begins, that would certainly help you - try checking out the British Psychological Society websites for things to read and watch.

Also, at Arden University, our Psychology department have their own Twitter page and they tweet lots of interesting articles that could help with your wider reading too: https://twitter.com/ArdenUniPsych

Hope that helps!

thank you so much! i’ve started watching youtube videos of a level psychology just to get an idea of what i’m getting myself into - would you say that psychology is a difficult subject to understand?
