    the listening exam I somehow got a high B when I thought I had failed :lol:
    Fair enough. But I needed like 55/60 UMS which seems unlikely.

    my writing was marked to a mid-high A* but you know how your teacher goes to another teacher from another school and hey mark each others? well the other teacher was VERY harsh and wanted it downgraded to a low-mid B .. but my teacher didn't have any of it and just put it to an A ... (she then got an email saying that some of her marks were quite harsh, even though mine wasn't moderated by the board :lol: '

    and don't we all aim for 100% ;D

    Incorrect... You can get into loads of unis for medicine without biology.
    A lot of universities put preference on subjects that they don't specifically say they require-90% of Maths applicants to Cambridge had Physics A-Level yet it doesn't say it is compulsory.It wouldn't be wise to go for Medicine without Biology and the same goes for Maths,Physics and Engineering without Further Maths,you could get away with it for Physics and maybe Maths but not really Engineering even though it may not specifically say it is required by universities.

    Biology A level isn't required at many uni's for Medicine as in the first year they go over all the content anyway that's why physics isn't required either

    Biology's one of those lessons where you just cannot stop laughing when it's to do with the body and the opposite gender.

    Maths and Physics A-Levels are a popular combination.

    Just because 90% of applicants had it doesn't mean that it is required. Besides, those are applicants, not offers.

    If a university doesn't say an A Level is required or preferred then they really wouldn't discriminate if you did or didn't have that A Level.
