    I am in my 1st year of college and I'm studying as biology chemistry physics and English language/literature. I am hoping for top grades in them so I can study medicine. However if you look in my sig you will see info regarding my GCSE's and they are quite disadvantageous for a med school application. My grandmother however died a very not so nice deteriorative death and my uncle died a few weeks before. This cumulated a lot of stress on me. My grandmother died on 30th march 2010. Would thus count as extenuating circumstances for uni entry. Also how do I inform them of this and prove it. A death certificate is available for my grandmothers death as for my uncle we only have the service booklet as proof not much else.

    My mum was also pregnant and I also left my 1st secondary school the year before throughout late year 10 to finish gcse elsewhere. So I had a rocky GCSE year
