Studying Psychology

  • 1 vote

Hey everyone!

At the moment I'm currently studying Psychology at AS, I really enjoy it and want to hopefully study it at University.

However I'm not studying any other sciences at A- Level alongside Psychology. Will this be a problem when applying for Universities? I asked my teacher and she said that most universities do prefer students who study at least one other science for A-Level, when applying for Psychology degrees. What should I do?

I went to a psychology open day yesterday :D

the lecturer said that it's okay if you dont have any other science subjects a a-level..... but you should have them a gcse (((at least double award for science)))

BTW, geography, maths, sociology are considered to be sciences :D

I am doing psychology at university next year- I have Psychology and Biology at A level, which I think they do like. However, I also know people who do not do another science who got offers from other universities. At Newcastle, if you do two sciences you get a lower offer, for example that is my insurance and its AAB, without two sciences it would be AAA. But not many places will specifically require it :) where do you want to do it? and what exam board are you doing psychology A level with?
