    Good luck to everyone getting their results this month. I myself will be collecting my GCSE Results and I'm really nervous! I am predicted mainly A's and A*'s however I don't think I will get them all. I struggled with Chemistry, Physics and Maths but hopefully I'll get at least a B in those.

    I have to enrol for Sixth Form on the 22nd too. I have a question. I really want to study Law at University in a couple of years, therefore should I study A Level Law? Lots of people have told me universities don't accept it but other people are all for the idea? Confused!! Please help!

    I'm sure you'll be fine But I know it's easier said than done. I've been predicted a B for both English Language and Maths. I'm also really nervous too as I'm scared I won't get the results that I'm expected to or even worse, I may end up with less than a C as the papers were quite difficult in maths and there was no coursework. Do you keep feeling really sick, short of breath and as though something is rushing down your arms? If you do I can totally relate to those feelings, they're not at all nice.

    I'm not taking biology, so people think I can't do it...

    Hence I'm taking the chemistry degree with medicinal and biological Chem to go into medicine

    Do you want me to do:
    I'm doing medicine after chemistry! I'm so excited, can't wait! I'm really scared I won't get in with my GCSEs, can't wait to change the world.

    :lol: don't need to show my enthusiasm here, and I'm not worried about GCSEs tbh, they're done

    oh cool hi i'm doing ordinary gcses and I already have my maths and english language so i'm fine with those!

    Just awaiting three sciences (and some others) How about you?

    I did not mention biology once xD. I was making an assumption after what I have seen, you wanted to do chem eng then chem and sometimes a MFL. Whilst you are clearly smart, you don't seem that dedicated to do medicine? And yeah, the second version is nicer, little less sarcasm will do

    Chemistry with an MFL is what I plan on with Graduate Entry Medicine...

    Medicine, I'm unsure because:
    - It's such a cliché, and I don't want biology a level.
    - I feel really guilty about homeless people and feel I should help them somehow... But medicine won't do that...
    - I probably wouldn't get in

    So no I'm not set on it, but it's a possibility... And it'll probably be after UG.

    Also, I don't see why you need such "dedication" of course it's a hard degree but if I'm passionate about it after then I'll get in which I might.not, but hey ho that's life

    Surely Medicine could be one of the most useful degrees if it was purely to help homeless people? I'm sure there will be clinics for the homeless and needy somewhere. I can't actually think of any degree that would set you up better to help homeless people, and even with a degree in medicine you could still volunteer for a relevant charity in your spare time.

    You would get into medicine, the fact that you will have done a ton of A-levels shows you cope with stress, along with grades you are perfect ( throw in a little extra outside shizzle ). Btw, you really don't need a chemistry degree to build homes xD

    It does not matter what uni you go to for medicine? Would be nice to see a Oxford diploma on your wall though

    Fair enough, but if doing medicine is quite a big thing and requires a lot of dedication. You've got to ask yourself whether you really want it enough if you don't even want to take Biology A-level.

    Personally I want to either Computer Science or Engineering at (hopefully a top) Uni. My A level choices reflect that as I plan to take Maths, Physics, Computing, Electronics and then later Further Maths.

    If I get some experience next year (medical or volunteering with the homeless) I might even apply for medicine undergraduate!

    But again, lack of biology a level...

    Are these good? I can apply to the following:

    Cambridge
    Bristol
    Durham
    Edinburgh
    Leeds
    Oxford
    Manchester

    Biology in itself is interesting, but the actual A Level is boring...

    Good my a levels are:
    Physics
    Chemistry
    Maths and Further Maths
    Geography
    History AS
    French
    Spanish AS
    Welsh Baccalaureate

    Don't need bio for med, it's a crap a level in that it's just memorizing...

    If you can get into one of the big Unis (Oxbridge, Imperial etc..) then I think that you should go for it! Even if there's a uni higher rated for your subject you still have the advantage of how going to a famous uni, where even if you want to work abroad people will still have heard of it!

    I'm kicking myself for not putting enough effort into my GCSEs already, I'm predicted all As and 2 A*s, but I know that I'm probably gonna get at least a couple of Bs when I could have got a lot more A*s! :mad:
