    Grades show a small part of you, such as you are good exams or good at revising. Those who do not do well exams will then get poor grades, but this bears no resemblance of their actual intelligence. And considering that exams and grading systems are put in place to pretty much put a grade on you about how good you are at a subject. Some people can't do very well on written exams, however they can explain something with no trouble at all. Each person should be judged on their own merits and not a grade designated to you.

    Tell me what my grades say about me then?

    I did a BTEC level 3 extended diploma in Agriculture. I got MMM (triple merit).
    What is a well exam? Is the alternative an ill exam lol?

    That was supposed to be "well in exams". I mis-type if you will.

    You said I needed to 'work harder' as if its harder to get into other unis. I got offers from other universities but i preferred the course at mine. I honestly didnt think about this situation since I had a lot of other things on my mind.
    what uni are you at?

    Again, I got offers from other universities. My grades are fine. The grades required at my uni are the same as the others. This has nothing to do with it.

    You're right. My mistake. It's your attitude.

    Maybe it was a wrong choice of yours to choose Medicine, it's a very competitive course and it seems to me that you place heavy emphasis on grades. Are you sure you know what you're getting into? I always felt like grades are a subjective thing, it's not important after university but some people seem to still have the mindset that it's the only thing that matters in life. There is more to it than just grades alone, I just hope you realize that.

    This has nothing to do with my degree or my grades at all. Did you even read my post?

    It seems to me that you're asking almost everyone this 'Did you even read my post?' What I think you need right now is a place to calm down, your stress is getting ahead of you and you are over reacting.
    Move in with medical students next year, and your problem will be solved.
    I hope you realize you are going to deal with noisy people everywhere, and it won't just be where you are now. Honestly, you should have thought ahead before you applied.

    it sounds like you are struggling too much for a first year medical student to be honest..its going to get much, much harder. ironically maybe you aren't cut out for it? good effort on getting those grades but the people I know doing medicine are not supreme try-hards they are just really clever and never get to bogged down in work because they always excel at it really.

    I know someone who got three A's and 2B's at Higher (like AS level, but the important year) after working really hard at school, and has recently graduated from medical school.

    Grow up.

    BTW grades mean absolutely nothing after university; it's all about work experience. The sooner you realise that the better.

    Also as you felt the need to post the grades I think you are a :troll:
    not if you're trying to become a doctor, moron

    Im not 'bogged down' in work. Im doing the average amount of work for a medical student, which is a lot. The people at my uni not doing med/dent dont have ANYWHERE near as many exams as we do - this is the problem since we live together.
    Im not struggling with the course at all, its a lot of work but that doesnt mean Im struggling

    You either pass or fail, there are no grade distinctions in medicine.
    Would be pretty ridiculous if there were

    I'm guessing you go to Brighton and Sussex, right? You chose it, you went there, if you can't deal with the fact that you have to defend your choice of university to people who will laugh at you because of it then you shouldn't have gone there. You're doing medicine for crying out loud! Get over it! It's a big workload, sure, but that doesn't entitle you to police their University experience. Why weren't you studying with friends or at the library? I'm just saying I've haven't met many successful Medics that don't study in groups or in silence. How could you hope to do any work in halls? It halls!
