    Basically - I've had a complete change of heart from doing law to doing neuroscience. I have AS levels in biology and maths but I dropped them in favour of essay based subjects when I wanted to do law. I'm planning on taking a year out, self studying and finishing my biology and maths as levels and doing a whole chemistry a level OR resisting the year of sixth form to attend classes in A2 bio and maths at my sixth form to finish them off, while attending As/A2 classes for chem, to help me do it in one year

    I would be predicted 3 As in chem bio and maths and I am hoping to finish this school year with A*A*A*A in English, history, French and economics respectively. Would Cambridge consider me if I resit the year? Or would they see me as a candidate who couldn't do sixth form in 2 years like everybody else.

    Seriously regretting my choices right now please help..
    Erm.. Hello Molly, I know this out of topic but are you the same Molly from QE (Leicester)?

    Doing it over three years won't hurt your Cambridge admission chances

    They may will even see you as more committed to the course - you're willing to do that extra year in order to study their subject.
    Three people neg-repped this post of mine... if you think it was wrong, please do say

    Noo it's fine don't worry! Well I don't know much about your personal situation but are you able to do some science subjects in the one year? For example if you were to take biology and chemistry a levels all in one year like me? It depends how good you are at doing these subjects and what subjects are necessary for the course you want to do at university?

    I want to do Biochemistry at good universities like Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and maybe UCL (If I make it :P). I would not mind doing A levels again for an extra two years.
