    If you get As in the summer, then your January modules won't need to go down on your UCAS, so universities will never know. In which case, it sounds like your grades will set you in very good stead for Medicine, although remember that getting onto a medical course constitutes a lot more than just getting the grades. Most of those who apply are very intelligent so you have to do well in your BMAT/UKCAT and interview, as well as write a good personal statement too.

    I want to do medicine at a university likemanchester or birmingham. I got 10 A*S at GCSE. ANd I sorta messed up my january modules. I got a C in biology and chemistry and im resitting in the summre. SAy if i get all As in the end how badly have these resists affected my chances of getting accepted is there still hope?
    Oh don't worry! Just resit! Your GCSE grades are excellent and I'm pretty sure somewhere like Manchester will not reject you because you resat some AS modules... (They are AS, right? and I'm pretty sure you don't even have to declare resits). But yes, I have tons of friends who are applying for Medicine, and a lot of them are resitting their modules...

    ahh, okay

    Good luck anyway - were the Cs due to lack of revision / being lazy or actually not understanding stuff?

    It was becasue I did like no revision I think I got a bit complacent. Ig to an A in physics and Business. I don't think its a case of not understanding. I know if i will work hard I should be able to get the As

    when doing retakes you usually get lower grades then the first sitting --> that's the case for most of the times, but not always!

    Of course you do! My boyfriend's applied to do medicine (has an offer from Newcastle) and last year, he got a D in unit 2 chemistry, resat it and has an A now.
    He still got the offer even with a C overall in AS Chemistry on his UCAS. It's definitely possible, it's not all about grades, you've gotta do all the other stuff, work experience etc.
    Good luck!
