    I got:

    ICT: C
    MATHS: B
    ENGLISH: C
    CORE SCIENCE; B
    ADDITIONAL SCIENCE; A

    I failed 2 subjects. I can do my A-level subjects (Sciences, maths and accounting) but I feel at a grave loss.

    (I want to be a dentist, but i'm feeling pathetic looking at my grades)


    Is A-levels right for me?

    Will I be able to cope?

    My friends got A's and A* and B's

    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.
    No. Only Cambridge prefer to see all sciences/maths AFAIK.

    And also, UCL give a small preference to people who actually have a contrasting subject.

    Please can someone explain to me what the picture means. Thanks.
    You got a B in the CA, and an A* (score of 90+) in the exam, giving you an A* overall. Well done!

    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!
    Thanks. What do the number mean (the 39 and 145), because the second unit was out of 40 and the first one out of 100. Are these the UMS points for each?

    A Levels may be for you, yep, but you might have to work really really hard to get good grades. Make sure you do your research properly when looking into your university options. Depending on what you get for AS level, a foundation degree before you go into your full degree might be an option.

    Yess a contrasting subject not two.. With competition levels at what they are it would be advised to take maths, especially to aid chemistry and even biology.

    No problem

    Yup, they're the UMS marks. They're different from raw marks - have a look here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki/MS

    Some advice if your taking maths, make sure you go to a college that do the Edexcel board, trust me examsollutions.net will make everything easier, you're at quite a disadvantage I think if you aren't on edexcel.
