BSc Psychology degreeWatch
Heyya it's not a huge problem. I've had friends taking those subjects at A-levels and they did quite well in their psychology degree. You can have a look at the curriculum for psychology courses at different unis and see what fits best for you. Some are more flexible whereby you can choose your optional modules (usually in 2nd and 3rd year) so you can choose the less science-y module if you prefer. Most psych degrees are rather broad and maybe there will be only a few lectures focused on the science of it e.g. genetics of mental health disorders but they rarely go in great detail or there will rarely be a whole module dedicated to it – they just scratch the surface of these topics.
Thank you! I was considering doing psych with education as I want to work with kids and I thought I might understand the science easier with this as I will enjoy it more. Im unsure whether its best to just do a straight degree in psych or do psych with education?

If you are worried about the 'science' aspect., look carefully at the syllabus as some courses may to be more Humanities based. Essex - https://www.essex.ac.uk/courses/ug00361/1/ba-psychology
Or have a look at degrees that are 'Psychology and Counselling' - Greenwich https://www.gre.ac.uk/undergraduate-...lling-bsc-hons
"with Education" limits your potential career pathways. and as with any joint subject degree you'll have to compromise on which units you are able to do in each subject.
Though of course, I respect your view on this. This is just my perspective!
