    I recently got my GCSE results back and I got into sixth form which meant I got the grades to do all my desired alevel subjects. However I wasn't pleased at all at the grades I ultimately got in my GCSEs.

    RE- A
    Maths- B
    Psychology- B
    DT- B
    English lit- B
    English lan- B
    Biology- B
    Chemistry- B
    Physics- B
    French- C
    Geography- C
    Drama- C
    I really really wanted to get As but now I look back I couldn't have possibly achieved that with the amount of work I was putting in. Medicine has been a dream for me to get into and I'm going to work my hardest in sixth to get at least AAA. Though I've been wondering are there any universities that would even look at my results although there are unis that could I'm at the bare minimum requirement. Should I continue on my journey in hopes of getting an offer or should I just choose another path which I really don't want to do, I feel like it's medicine or nothing else I can't see myself doing anything else. Please, any advice will be helpful.

    P.s I'm taking Chemistry, Biology, Psychology and Sociology in sixth form
