Best place to look are individual uni websites, they all have the requirements laid out for you and it often differs between the institutions so spend a good amount of time researching them all!

Regarding the job:

Although it's best if you can talk to someone going into / in the field - who will give more accurate contextual advice.

With the grades, honestly as long as you can get 6's and 7's across the board (specifically in maths, science and english) and then go on to do relevant A-Levels it doesn't matter. In reality it's only your science, maths and english GCSE's and A-Levels which are being looked at for university, but it's best to have good grades all round. Excluding your Oxford and Cambridge who will want top GCSE's (more so Oxford apparently).

UoB don't even mention GCSE's

https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/undergra...psychology-bsc
Kings just want a 6

http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/under...sc-psychology/
Bristol just want 6's

But basically, do as well as you can - if you can get an 8 (for example) then go for it, don't lower yourself because X university only needs a 6 or 7. You can also research and look into alternative routes into the job. Good luck man. :yy:

Sorry if some information is not up to date, anyone feel free to correct it.
