So i received my AS results on Thursday and I was quite disappointed after getting AABB, having been predicted on 4As and working at that level the whole year. Having these grades, I am confused as to if I should still apply for Medicine, as I do understand that 3/4 of my subjects are linear.
Below are my stats:
GCSEs: 6A*s 4As
A - History
A - Chemistry
B - Biology
B - Maths
A2 predited: A*AA - If I keep maths/A*A*A - If i keep history
UKCAT: (in September)
I have been recommended by my school to drop Maths and carry on with History since I got an A in it, although I do still have a choice if I should do Maths.
I have thought about this, and considering I was a few marks off an A in Maths, I plan to retake a paper to bring it up to an A. I have also been considering to do Maths privately for A2, while carrying on with my other 3 subjects at my sixth form as my sixth form only allows you to take 3 A levels for A2. I am well aware this will mean more hard work, but I am committed to even working harder than I did this year, and for now this is just a thought. I know that some universities do not look at AS levels, but how much will the B in Maths hinder my chances considering its a non reformed A level?
Having said all this, what are your thoughts on if I should apply? Where should I consider applying etc with my current stats? If my UKCAT score is average in September or if not?
Thanks for any responses! I'm just really confused?!!
