    In my honest opinion University places are very competitive, especially for Medicine therefore I think your low grades in Chemistry and Biology might affect your successful as youll be alongside hundreds of students who got A* in them at GCSE and have similar if not identical AS/A level grades- usually AAB-A*A*A for medicine. I would not give up hope now as most if not all Universities do not count GCSEs in their Entry Requirements except from a B or above in Maths and English. If you do very well at AS level e AAAA/AAAAA with some 90%+ UMS then I do not see why you would not get a place. But also remember that even applicants with A*AA have been rejected from medicine before so if I were you I would also try to get some work experience to increase your chances and bulk up your personal statement.

    Yh I am aware of my grades in Chem and Bio, but it was due to extenuating circumstances and so I hope they consider it. But, believe you me when I say I've been busy with work experience over the holidays.... I volunteer at a GP, Charity shop and Nursing Home, and I'm applying to apply to a hospital aswell, in which I intend to continue when I'm in sixth form..... Also, I heard that some uni's such as Durham don't look at GCSEs provided that you have a predicted grade of AAA in A level and a high UKCAT score so I'm gonna practice the UKCAT after AS-Level to make sure I get a good grade. It's the same with Plymouth aswell. What are your predicted grades by the way?
