I'm 17 and about to start my A2 year and I just phoned Kings College Hospital regarding work experience placement as I want to study medicine, and they asked for my AS grades as soon as they're available in about 8 or 7 days time. My AS grades will be poor I know this already as I had a rough first year but I'm more than capable of fulfilling my potential in the second year coming up in which I do A2 which will determine my overall A Level grades. Regarding applying for University, and this problem, I have a few questions:
1. If I apply this year with my poor grades that don't cut it for Medicine, Biomedical Science or Neuroscience, can I still have a chance of getting into the universities that I want once I complete my A2 year with much better grades? If I get good enough grades for A2 may I get offers at any time between results day and applying the following year?
2.Will some universities look for applicants that have a better A2 year that AS although applying this year to go to Uni in 2013 would depend on my AS grades?
3. If I apply next year to go to University will my A level grades as a whole be considered, determined by my A2, instead of my AS grades which determine entry this year?
4. If I have to do resits for AS exams, would Universities frown upon this?
I hope I made my self clear because I really need help on this and I'm really stressing out.
