So i'm seriously considering studying psychology at University (hopefully Birmingham) as i've always found it fascinating, particularly criminology psychology. The thing that i'm a bit iffy about though is the fact I couldn't study it as an A level. What i'm trying to ask is if psychology is more or less dependent upon the A level's syllabus? Would it benefit if I had taken it as an A level in other words.
I've recently been skimming through a few psychology books in my school's library which are focused on the A level and most of it seems to be on memory (?). I suppose i'm just quite nervous that because i've not been taught the subject before, I might not like it.
My friends think i'm crazy for potentially taking it as a degree - they say it's extremely boring.
Any help is appreciated. Btw sorry if this is under the wrong forum heading, i'm new :P

I hadn't studied psychology before my degree. Some universities do require it at A Level, or at least a science subject, but most of them don't. As long as you have at least a C in GCSE Maths and Science it shouldn't be a problem.
