Hi. I'm a student in Year 12 and until today I was taking maths, physics, chemistry and biology all to A-Level. All of them are with OCR, by the way.
Due to other commitments and a bit of stress pertaining to the other subjects, I have since decided to drop physics entirely. However, I have been given the option to take it simply to AS and drop it at the end of this year. I can't tell if I regret dropping it or not at the moment; the subject was enjoyable enough and I have now missed a lesson. If I want to continue with it, then I had better make my decision by this Thursday.
My extra curricular activities are as follows:
World Challenge; Silver DofE; Vice-Captain of a school house; Part-time job in a supermarket (12 hours a week); EPQ; Prince Philip Award and Marsh Prize; Volunteering in GCSE chemistry lessons; Work experience for a week at UTC Aerospace systems; Dragons' Apprentice Challenge; Maths challenge and attending the gym. In the past I have also participated in my School Parliament as a speaker; as a transition ambassador helping new students acclimatise to secondary school; volunteered at a charity shop and a computer science club and finally, wider reading.
Can anyone advise me on this please? I can't really decide.
My problem is not knowing whether or not my academic profile and extra curricular activities add up to what is needed by universities for medicine or other science degrees. If anyone has any questions regarding my past results and such then please do not hesitate to ask.
From GCSE to A level, it's all changing
