    I want to be a clinical psychologist, but can i do this if i study a BA rather than a BSC.

    I know how competitive this field is , so as there are more BSC course than BA in psychology, do you think this will limit my chances of going on post graduate study???

    On BA psychology courses, is there an opportunity to miss the statistics units and still be a chartered clinical psychologist.

    Statistics are a huge part of Psychology and is demanded to receive graduate basis for registration with the BPS and thus the possibility to continue into graduate studies.

    Unfortunately, if you want to be a Clinical Psych, you're gunna have to deal with a lot of stats work.

    As long as the degree you do is BPS accreddited then ultimately you should have a problem.
    One of my lecturers took the BA route and is a a qualified clinical psychologist.

    If youre hoping to avoid stats though, you have no chance.
