    My college has put me forward for a priority re-mark as I was just 3 UMS away from in A (and thus from my offer)...would it be worth emailing SGUL to let them know this or are they not very lenient with that kind of thing.

    hi can anyone tell me; if I don't take chemistry to A2 and carry on with bio economics and psychology and manage to meet the 3A minimum offer/ukcat requirements do I still stand a chance of getting a place here. The thing is I recently received my grades and got A's in eco and psychology, a B in bio and a C in chem. Im worried I wont be able to handle chem at A2 and achieve an A, so am better off focusing on these other three subjects and getting A'/A*'s in them. Does anyone know how disadvantaged I will be ? or will I at all as they only state to have one or/and the other

    Hi,

    For A2 you need either biology/chemistry + two other subjects at grades AAA.

    If you only take one of biology and chemistry to A2 then the other must be taken at AS and achieved at least a grade B.

    In answer to your question, taking bio, economic and psych to A2 would be fine. HOWEVER, the C in AS CHEMISTRY will hold you back. You will need to resit that to get at least a B.


    When you applied, your school will also need to predict you a grade B I'm AS chemistry as well as AAA in bio econ and psyc

    St George's are fine with AS modular resits

    I was in the same boat as you pretty much and was torn between dropping history (B) or chemistry (C) after AS. I had bcd for Chem as so didn't think I'd manage A2 chem. I dropped the chemistry but three weeks into term after speaking to teachers and tutor etc I decided to do A2 chemistry and ended up actually enjoying it! I had a lot of encouragement and help and managed to get an A at A2!! It makes AS chemistry seem much more straightforward and when you resit you can add a lot of UMS to your score😊

    Hey everyone, I just got offered a place yesterday - but because there's such a short amount of time before September, I'm trying to get everything sorted ASAP. Does anyone have a reading list and a list of vaccinations necessary so I can crack on while I wait for my acceptance pack to arrive? Thanks!

    Apparently most people were sent a confirmation email talking about things to do next... and some people have aka like me.

    Wed have to call them and ask them to send it but they might be closed right now.
