    Do you guys think these results would be decent enough for Medical school? (Bristol/Oxford standard). Also, which A-levels would you suggest from these grades? (i plan on having maths in there somewhere, possibly further too). finally, do you think these are good enough for Oxford in general?

    A*’s:
    -Physics
    -Biology

    A’s:
    -Chemistry
    -Mathematics
    -Electronics
    -History
    -English Language
    -English Literature
    -Philosophy and Ethics
    -Core Science

    Distinction *’s at A-level:
    -IT(Qcf) BTEC Level 3

    Distinctions at GCSE:
    -DiDA ICT Level 2
    Yup, they're fine for medical school. Have a look here to see specific requirements: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...E_Requirements

    Congrats!

    Regarding A-Levels, I suggest you do chemistry and biology and then two other subjects that you enjoy. Be a bit wary of Further Maths though - some medical schools don't consider maths and further maths as separate subjects.

    If it was in the Sciences for are example, which are out of 100 ums, you would have achieved the most 'points' possible, but not necessarily full marks, as the boundaries fluctuate heavily. All the module scores are then added up to formulate your mark out of 400, 360 being the A* boundary, 320 the A and so on.

    Hope that helps.
    Ohhh thank you so much:-D

    This is the link I found, although it is slightly confusing as it doesn't add up the total for you.

    4A*s, 3As 3B's and a Certificate were the results, not exactly best case scenario but I'm soooo happy

    2 of the A*s was an ICT BTEC and 2 of the B's were separate BTECs!

    Wow, you've done loads! I've only finished stats and i'm finishing maths in november. Well done What's the Higher Project?
    It's a shorter version of the EPQ pretty much, you do a 2500 word essay or artefact and write about the process. I wrote the essay 'How has modern technology affected the English language?'

    Nooo way. Maths and physics are definitely not necessary for medical school. The only medical school in the UK that requires one of them is Cambridge - everywhere else only requires biology and chemistry, and then are happy to see you do whatever you want. We've got a detailed summary of A-level entry requirements here!
    Although maths isn't an entry requirement they are advised to take it due to the sheer competition of medical school. Alot of students will be taking bio, chem, maths then a subject of there choice. And will be at an advantage to those who take bio chem and 2 irrelevant subjects.
    Besides maths is almost certainly needed for the chemistry course, very few students go on to do well without maths.
    And if you're a student who thinks maths isnt for you then I don't think chemistry is either tbh, in my June exam about 20 marks + (a whole grade) was through calculations.

    You scored an A* overall in stats by the looks of it. You scored an A* in unit 1 and a B in unit 2, but your overall grade was an A*.

    Nice one!
