    I recently started Sixth form, and A Levels i have taken are, Biology Chemistry History and English Literature. For Gcse's i managed, 2 C's 5 B's and 2 A's.

    I didn't get as good grades as i would have liked. I have always had an ambition to become involved in medicine, but i'm worried that even if i do well in the next two years, there is no chance of a uni accepting me when they see my Gcse results. Might they consider me, or am i being too ambitous? Also if they would what kind of A level grades would i need to get?

    Thanks.

    Swapping English for Physics might be a good idea, or better still - maths.

    Good luck.

    i got worse GCSE's and Im applying for med. I got ABB at AS. I am predicted A*AA and the chances of me getting anywhere are slim, but what my grades really show is how I've made a big jump and I can grasp new topics better than others. If you can show this by getting good A-levels, if anything you will have a better chance than most people. Maybe, well, its how I see it. i got no A*'s and 1 A at GCSE so fml

    Thanks very much for the speedy replies, great help and support.

    I enjoy English and History, and I'm not the best at Maths. Physics i could handle if you say its absolutely neccesary.
