    I was 1 UMS off an B . I'm taking CHEM1, CHEM2 and CHEM5 this January.....In total 7 exams WOOOOOOO . Then comes June, with 6 exams lol. June will END me.

    PS-Depends on what you're resitting for Chem
    Resitting the whole of A2 to try and get an A*... hahah that's very funny!

    The advice we got from our tutor about A level chem was white paper.
    Sheets and sheets of white paper.
    Sit down with every mock available, do everything you can for it and you'll be fine.

    He reckons the only way to get through A level chem is by turning tones of white paper into note filled black blotchy inky paper.

    Works though, especially with some of the more mechanism based learny modules.
    Just repeat it untill you know it.
    So I just write lke everything out from my head into paper??

    Meh I did work mega hard last year :') got A* and an A at A2 . Too bad I got Us for everything else..... lol

    A2 Chemistry is not actually that bad. Just depends on how much revision you are willing to put in. Currently just for AS I am doing around, 9 hours on a daily basis .

    Hope it pays off

    I've applied to Liverpool, Lancaster and Leeds for Medicine other two are both Pharmacy options.

    I ended up with CCCb at the end of A2. I would have been totally screwed if I didn't get 'okay' results at A2 .

    how about yourself? where ya applied and results!

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one willing to try a non medicine/chemistry/biology related course
    Me too! Part of me thinks I should go for something like genetics but then again I loooooooove maths so am really tempted to I for that instead if med fails

    I'm resitting one in January
    5 is a lot to study for :console:
    But I don't think your application is hopeless, really depends on where you apply.
    Apparantly a few medical schools are quite merciful to us..
    Wait to hear at least some news before thinking the worst.
    My philosophy to get through this year: It aint over till it's over :cool:
    Not that merciful it seems, Kings have just rejected me

    I'm going to email them in a bit for feedback. Hey you never know, maybe it was just an accident and they actually meant to give me an offer :rolleyes:

    (Original post by Doctor.)
    I am just going to go to my 5th option if I don't get into Medicine and then go the GEM way. I cannot be bothered with another year out being honest
    Me too. Newcastle for biomed and then either GEM or possibly their transfer program to swap to medicine after one year.

    Well, I have 5 exams in January ! So I guess I should get revising (at least trying to revise :P) any tips for Chemistry though?!! I don't know how to go from a B to an A ... ugh
    I have 5 too. It's hard to get to revising, but even when i do it's painful - all i can think is 'what if i hadn't messed up? i'd be having a great gap year right about now'. My mind playing games with me again...

    BTW i see you're applying to UEA. Does that mean you have at least one predicted A*? My school refused to predict me an A* in maths based on the fact i got a B (although i was painfully close, ~1% away overall)
