    OCR Maths/Biology, AQA A Psychology and Edexcel chemistry. I'm resitting biology and chemistry unit 2 in the summer so I can try to enter A2 with all A's. I'm not too bothered about resits seeing as I know I won't get into Cambridge or UCL anyway.
    I thought you couldnt do medicine if you did resits?

    Or is that if you do A levels over 3years.

    Please confirm

    It's A2 resits that tend not to be allowed, AS resits are fine everywhere except Cambridge and UCL.

    I've been awake for hours, I just can't sleep in the mornings. Today I'll be volunteering at a charity shop for a bit then keep telling myself I'll start revising later. I still have yet to start revising properly :teehee:

    That isn't true, unless it's a requirement unique for medicine.

    The working backwards stuff is the worst. I don't mind it the rest of it too much. I hate probability though lol, I don't even know what it is about it, it just takes me so much longer to do.

    I didn't understand Normal Distribution for the longest time, it's not tooo bad now. As long as I draw a graph for like every single question, it's okay...usually.

    We had our S1 Mock before the Easter holidays and it was the June 2010 Edexcel S1 paper. 87% was an A. -.-

    I'm probably going to get an E on that paper :cry2:

    I think I've done that past paper, but I didn't mark it properly, probably because I didn't understand half of it :lol: I was talking to someone in the year above who done S2 this January and they were saying that 90% raw marks was less than 90% UMS :eek:

    No idea if it's specific to medicine, but neither Cambridge or UCL (forgot that one) accept AS resits for Medicine.

    EDIT: For Cambridge "We appreciate that, very occasionally, there are circumstances when the grades that an applicant achieves are not an accurate reflection of the student’s abilities and potential. Normally, however, you would not be advised to make an application based on re-sitting A levels to gain improved grades." - TSR Wiki Page

    For UCL: "We do not consider resit students unless they have previously held a firm offer."

    Here's an article that shows UCL's policy on AS resits, and justifies it on the basis of if you do poorly at AS, you'll be unlikely to succeed at their medical course. Cambridge I heard somewhere that they don't allow AS resits, although I can't find any evidence atm so I may be wrong.

    Are you from London that your so interested in all those London Unis?

    And btw, Business studies is a really good skill as a doctor, I bought this up in my interview. Helps you deal with difficult decisions, 'building up a rapport' with customers/patients and dealing with difficult patients etc. Working with people, communications, loads!
    Yeah I live near London, I really don't fancy leaving to study far from home. Plus I quite like London. I spoke to the admissions tutor for Imperial, and he agreed that it was a 'soft' option; and said I should take up another AS level :/
