Hey!

so truthfully due to personal experiences and obviously with covid/ online schooling being around, my a levels haven't been exactly according to plan so far.
I've been worried that i wouldn't get a chance to go to uni due to my grades. However, does anyone know some good unis that have high acceptance rates, more specifically in psychology? Or any unis that provide psychology with an foundation year. I really hope someone can help but also give a realistic view on this too.

thank you )

Zara_qwe, I am sure you will achieve the grades you need to be offered a place at a university to study Psychology. Please be assured that there will be a Psychology course out there for you, (possibly a foundation) depending on your results. I am sure many people are feeling the same as you. At the University of South Wales we offer quite a few Psychology courses, including an additional foundation year. Our entry requirements range from BCC-CDD for the degree and lower for the foundation. There will be many universities out there with similar entry requirements, so please do not be too disheartened. Here are details of our Psychology degree https://www.southwales.ac.uk/courses...ns-psychology/ We look at each application on an individual basis. I hope this helps, let me know if I can help further. Happy researching and good luck Rebecca

honestly i came on for the same reason so i wont be very helpful

but unis ive looked into so far are:
university of hull, swansea, aberstay, chester, coventry and sussex

- some of these are only if you do a foundation year tho (because that way they accept way lower grades- but still im unsure as to whether i actually want to spend a full year on foundation...)
- i think i looked for unis that accepted grades like bbb/ bbc/ bcc through clearing

truthfully im hoping for a miracle on results day already knowing i didnt get the grades i need for where i want to go lmao

Hi there,

It may be worth looking into Arden University as we pride ourselves on having generous entry requirements to give everyone the opportunity to access further education, no matter their previous qualifications or lack thereof. We currently provide a BSc in Psychology but also provide the same degree with a foundation year where entry requirements are lower.

For our BSc in Psychology (which is BPS accredited also!) it is required for you to have at least two A-Levels as well as grade C or above in three subjects at GCSE level including Maths or their equivalents! I feel this is great for those who feel they maybe did not do as well as they would like as it doesn't matter what grades you got, just that you have the qualification. With the foundation year (also BPS accredited!) is it requires just at least 3 GCSEs with at least a grade C or above in Mathematics!

Hope this helps!
