    I am in year 13 at a sixth form. I do chemistry, biology and geography. I am applying to medicine in a few weeks, but I would like to know how I could finish the year with 3 A*'s under my belt. Tips and advice?

    Work hard, work hard and work hard. Very few people have the natural talent to get A* A* A* without a lot of hard work. If you're not one of them people, just apply yourself.

    I'm assuming you got AAA at AS? Get 90% in either each module (or 90+% overall, I'm not sure...) at A2 in all your subjects and you'll have some fantastic A levels.

    Good luck.

    OP, you're doing sciences mainly so I think if you work hard and revise alot, then its perfectly possible.

    With geography, you're going to need a bit of luck

    It's really possible to do so, you just have to work hard. And as long as you've done well so far its fine. But you have to have gotten As in the AS part before, and then 90% in A2 modules after that! You're not the only one trying to get three A*s, but remember that its not too important to get all A*s anyway. When the universities offer you a place for medicine it will most likely be for AAA anyway, so you'll just need to meet that after you get an offer.
    Good luck anyway! I was going to do medicine but i decided not to
    Have fun revising!
