    No matter how long I prepare for, no matter how long I study for I'll always feel the 'grade' I get is not true to how much effort I've put in. I ended with ABBB at the end of AS with a lot of time spent revising and I really require AAA at the end of A2, which I doubt I'll get.

    I feel the questions catch me out. I feel like there are some questions, which are easy, but I never seem to understand them in the exam because I always think they are looking for something else. I genuinely think I'm not smart enough to get AAA and I'll get my ass whooped if I don't, as well as not doing what I really, really want - medicine.

    Probably short term memory problems, get some advise from doctors. Take breaks regularly when studying.

    That tells me that you and your parents are asians. You could always get into medical school with graduate entry with BSc Biomedical. Graduate Medicine are normally 2 years less than the normal Medical degree.

    GEM is one year less than a standard 5yr course, you also now have to find 9k upfront without any fee loan. Sticking in at alevel is so much easier

    Some Scottish Universities teach Medicine for 6 years. I was refering to that actually since I live in Scotland.

    9k fees wouldn't be a problem if you've worked for an year before applying. But I'm sure that you can get a graduate (or mature student) loans.

    There is a loan available for 2 year graduate LLB, I think. Not so sure about that.

    But you shouldn't worry about 9k or 12k if you're really really determined to become a doctor otherwise you haven't developed enough interest in medicine.
