What's your 3rd A level? There isn't required A levels but most universities do prefer psychology, science subjects, maths. Some unis do have required a levels like at least one science subject or psychology. Look at the entry requirements for the unis you're considering on ucas

some universities will require 2 science subjects, most will require 1 science subject, there may be a few that don’t have any requirements but i doubt they’re accredited.

do you only do two a levels?

You wont get accepted for a mainstream science based Psychology degree without Psychology or a traditional Science at A level.

You'll need to look for a more Humanities/Soc Sci based Psychology course such as
Lancaster - https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/un...-ba-hons-c802/
Or look at Counselling and Psychology
Bournemouth - https://www.bournemouth.ac.uk/study/...gy-counselling
Or Counselling and Psychotherapy
UCLAN - https://www.uclan.ac.uk/courses/ba_h...chotherapy.php
Or Criminology and Counselling

The BA at Lancaster is science based. The BSc is exactly the same, it is just personal preference as to what you want on your degree.

Some unis only say that Psychology or a Science A level is preferred not required, such as Reading and Royal Holloway so they are worth considering (and maybe emailing their Admissions team for further advice). Lancaster is a good uni that does not require it and so is Sussex and Leicester. You just need to research unis carefully before applying to make sure you don't apply to any that do require it.
