    Limited how much? Most unis I've seen don't NEED the whole A2... Hmmm
    Like you said, its not too bad. Don't apply to places that want it to full A-levels like Cambridge, Nottingham, Sheffield, imperial etc.. there are quite a few of these though

    They prefer 3 sciences.. then I realised you're doing chemistry, maths and physics. Even still, most applicants will offer biology A-level but yeah, you shouldn't worry too much about it now, just get the grades you need.

    Probably not since most don't accept both maths and fmaths. Also forgot, some unis won't count grades you got earlier/after the 2 years of A-level study

    Medicine eh? :holmes: Your grades are/will be up to scratch (obvs) but I think the issue might be your commitment etc? You probably want to start volunteer stuff ASAP and then get some proper, clinical experience over the summer.

    Exactly. People know they want Medicine from a young age. I still don't know if I want to do it first (like I'd want it as a graduate but...) and so it's difficult.

    What do you think the implications would be of changing an EPQ? I think someone else did it last year at my school and still got an A* (they changed from Spanish to Philosophy, so quite a big change!) but I'm concerned it will have a detrimental effect to my grade

    I changed mine!
    It was the evolution of the planet back in June because it bored me to death and now it's how the angle of pipes affects the velocity of water and looking at fluid mechanics.
    I'm still certain I can achieve a good grade..a lot of work yet to be done though.

    Cool, thanks. So has your co-ordinator/mentor said it won't harm your grade?
