    Sorry, but this sounds like a very poor troll attempt.

    If you are for real, then why do you want to do a course in psychology? Also for any other decent course at a decent university, which you need to increase your career prospects, you likely need ABB, so really get your act together and work, so yes, it is worth the hassle if you want to have better job prospects.

    Actually most universites for psychology require a minimum of a B in English language and maths. Also like c2uk said, if this is for real and not a troll then you shouldn't need to ask anyone else as to whether its worth it, you should have your own reasons for wanting to study it at degree level for three years of your life. (e.g. because you enjoy it etc.) You'd need to work for any degree at a good university really.

    you dont need ABB in A levels, it will depend on what university you would want to go to, if you feel these requirements are out of your reach then i would suggest lowering your standards for university. If you really wanted to do the course at that specific uni then work hard to get there, if you want something that much, you should put the effort in

    This has to be a very personal discussion - everyone's career will take them in a different direction. Minimum requirements for entry in to universities is usually a grade C in English and Maths, but this does vary depending on the course. You could study with the Open University - they require no formal entry qualifications, only a commitment to the chosen course. It is worth thinking about whether this is the right choice for you though.
