    The thing with medicine is that it really does not matter which university you go- you are going to end up at NHS anyways. But, I really am planning to get into investment banking and therefore prestige in a uni is really important.
    Yeah, same here What are you doing for AS?

    LOL oh damn XD If your school isn't doing well, Universities take this in mind and i think this only applies with A level but you could be considered for a course thats as competitive as medicine with only BBCb at A level XD Thats only if your school is literally terrible (which i doubt it is) and everyone is failing (which i doubt they are)...
