    when they say "BBC including chem+bio" do they mean you need a B in both bio and chem or could you get the C in one of them so long as you've taken both subjects to A level? It's a bit confusing.

    Also, do you think they'll look at how many AS modules you have retaken during A2? As in, if I retake both of my chem AS modules will this matter?
    Im assuming so, on my UCAS it says; BBC in Chem, Biol and History, im not 100% certain though.
    And I've resat both chem units so don't worry about that
    If you need anything else i'd be happy to help

    Thanks for your reply!
    D'you think that if I could get an A in psychology, B in bio and C in chem they'd consider me or must I have the 2 B's in chem and bio? I really think that I should call them up and find out

    No worries
    I think calling them up and finding out just to clarify is your best option, just so you know 100%

    They don't care about AS retakes.
    BBC can be in any subjects, as long as you get BBC or above and it includes the subjects they ask for.

    Nah they don't care what grades you get for each subject as long as you have BBC overall.

    Thanks for the info - that's a bit of a relief! Also, does having a fourth subject up to AS count? I have a random A grade in French lol. It seems so pointless to me now

    Nope. They're not interested in AS grades at all for BM6. BM5 yes you need AAAa (3 Alevels and an AS) but not BM6.

    Hi guys



    I got 4A*'s, 4A's and 3B's at GCSE



    I'm doing chemistry, biology, maths and history for AS which I got B,B,A,D in.

    Retaking history so I can push it up to the B.

    I'm definitely not eligible for the 5 year because all medical schools require a B for the dropped AS level.



    I'm predicted A, A, B and the retake of history would bring that up to a b.



    I've had much work experience and volunteering.

    I haven't done the UkCAT yet.



    What do you think?

    Am I eligible for the programme.



    I will also be applying to the 6 year schemes at Kings, Nottingham and Queen Mary. (I may change Nottingham to UEA)



    Thank you
