I am struggling to pick what A level I want to do. I think I want to do Psychology at uni but I'm not sure and want to keep my options open. Would taking Bio, Chem and Maths be more useful than switching one of those for Psychology? Is psychology a level even useful for the uni degree?

If you wanna do psychology at uni, then yeah take it, if not you can switch bio for psychology. Because for example medicine unis look at psychology as a science subject so they only want you to have chem and either psychology/maths/or bio. I think its the same for engineering. Not sure about other courses

if you did bio, chem and maths you'd still be able to do a psychology degree. take subjects you enjoy. none of the unis who offer psychology ask for a level psychology. i'm doing a psychology degree and whilst i can say the a level has given me a bit of a headstart, it's not a significant advantage as lecturers teach everyone from scratch so it's a level playing field.

Hi there,

I am currently doing a Psychology and Criminology degree and also completed an A-Level in Psychology too. Personally, I think if you are looking to continue your studies in psychology, while it is not completely necessary it is definitely helpful as it gives you a good basis of knowledge on psychology and the different sub sectors that are researched in Psychology. Some of the content learnt in first year of university can be overlapping but I do think already knowing certain theories or studies really helps with deepening your understanding on said areas of psychology.

Toni,
Student Ambassador

I’m in my first year of sixth form and I take psychology. As I’ve been looking at uni courses, most of the topics we do at a level cross over and by speaking to my teachers, it seems that degree level adds to knowledge already obtained at A level. It any help you understand degree content better, as you will already have a foundation knowledge rather than understanding everything for the first time.
