    I go to a Catholic sixth form which sounds pretty similar to option 2, speaking from experience I love it. I'm not a confident person when it comes to making friends but I made them in abundance and on the mocks before exams I got 3 a's and B. I think having a relaxed atmosphere helps you to integrate into college life, and if you discipline yourself well enough and surround yourself with the right people your friends can have a positive impact on your study. Yes we live in the marketisation era of education, but a higher pass rate doesn't mean it's the best college overall, you learn more at sixth form than a-levels and btecs.

    I did chemistry, bio, psychology and history at as. I loved history, still do, research it here and then in my own time, chemistry i also did like. Least fav was psychology, so boring lol. Thats good a levels, not sure about human bio i would stick to normal biology.

Thats good a levels, not sure about human bio i think it depends on what you like, if dont like the plant stuff (although tbh its not that bad and they are easy marks) then do human bio- although check uni requirments for med as they may have changed now

    If you like PBL (problem cased style of learning) and being exposed to clinical stuff pretty heavily from pretty much your first week then this is the uni for you, but if you prefer the more traditional, mostly lecture based, with more basic sciences and anatomy n physio initially and with clinical stuff from yrs 3onwards then a different uni will be better, my uni is pretty lenient in terms of entry.

    Thats pretty good, shows determination, just persevere and work hard and you will be fine. Umm im quite interested in acute care medicine and surgery, but still keeping my options open. the course is 5 years, after that you do 2years of foundation training and then do 2years of core medical/surgical training or 3yrs of gp training and then continue with your specialist for a few yrs (around 5)
