ever since i was 1 year old it has been my life long dream to work in a big investment bank and do some investment banking, maybe i'll work for the UN on saturdays for a bit of extra, and as a surgeon on sundays. this is the bare minimum i expect from my future career
now i just can't go on. i only got 14 A*s and an A. i'm so depressed i can't go on. i might not get into oxford, or god forbid even into some lesser uni like warwick. im going to be a failure for the rest of my life
Anyway, English Lit: b (expected b)
Law: c (expected c)
History B1: a (expected c)
History B3: a* (expected c)
Geography Higher: b (expected b)
R.E 1: a (expected a)
R.E 2: a* (expected a)
Drama: a (expected a/a*)
The following results are old ones that I'm currently at:
English lang: a/borderline a*
Maths: b/borderline a
German: God knows! My teacher says I can achieve an a*, although we haven't received any results!
ASDAN/COPE Award: Distinction (bb)
10A*'s, 1A... A-level: 4 A's... Thing is. Life isn't all about results. You can have a gazillion A*'s, and still not get into medicine (I want to do medicine btw), due to some random issue. Make sure to remember of the whole picture, not just results. Results get you sorted from the rest of the pack which apply to your course as well. But in the current climate of GCSE's and A-levels getting easier, you must have something apart from grades to set you apart from the crowd, because they will have the same results as you.
- Ace the UKCAT/BMAT
- Get some work shadowing/volunteering
- Read up on basic medical knowledge
- Write a good personal statement (TSR will help you with this)
- Do some prep for the interview, but not too much.
5A*s and 5As at IGCSE - I'm not sure how IGCSEs compare to GCSEs, they're suppose to prepare you better for A-level and anyway; well done to everyone and goodluck for those wishing to do medicine... I have no idea what I want to do yet. :/ xxxx
