I'm currently in year 12 studying AS levels in maths, economics, sociology and computing. I'm predicted B's and A's in all of them. However i have decided that what i really want to do after college is a course in the sciences such as pharmacy or medicine.
I have an an offer from a different sixth form to start again this september taking Biology, Chemistry, Maths A2 and Sociology A2.
However, should i take it? Would i get into medicine or pharmacy as i have started again to take sciences?
Also would they look down on me having 4 A2 levels and 2 as levels?
I understand some people completely change choices to start again, but i'm keeping a couple on. It's all quite complicated.
So basically is it worth me accepting this place? Because it's pointless me doing so if i'm not going to get into medicine or pharmacy anyway.
I don't see why not tbh. You're predicted good grades so far. And they'll only give you an offer for you to achieve 3 or 4 grades in specific subjects. You can say what your predicted grades were and why you started again.
I'm assuming you got good GCSE grades in Biology and chemistry though? Chemistry especially can be a shock to the system for the jump between GCSE's and AS's
If its what you want, then go for it. But maybe try and get some work experience for Medicine or pharmacy, or both if you can to make sure it is what you wsnt to do. I would not recommend either of those courses without doing some work experience 1st.
Would you need to do A2 Sociology? You'll already have AS Economics.
Medicine and Pharmacy both demand Chemistry Biology, although Maths or Physics are recommended.
It is a wise choice, since Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy does lead to a career, unlike other subjects.
