    Hi guys,
    i finally got my results today for my AS and I got CDDD
    a C in sociology,D in bio,chem (7 marks of a C) amd physics.
    And I want to prusue a carer in nursing or diagnostic radiography and I don't know what a levels to take?

    I have worked really hard on my AS exams putting in a lot of efforts and attending after school things and I still do not know what went wrong.
    what should I do?

    The university I hope for nursing are
    bucks 200-240/280 points
    lsbu- 200 ucas points
    west London- 260 points
    kings BBB
    city BBB


    for radiography it is
    Lsb-280points
    City 300 points


    Is it possible to a get BBBs in the Alevel
    what should I resit?

    Yes you can get BBB, it's about putting in hard work.
    If I was you, I'd drop the chemistry or physics, you dont need science a levels to go into nursing do you?
    I'd resit one paper in each subject in jan, so that'd be 3 papers and maybe do 1/2 A2 papers aswell.

    I can try and help you here

    I did my Alevel 6 years back and did maths, chemistry, phyics and Bio at AS. For A2 i dropped Bio. At AS i scored BBCC respectively and at Alevel I scored BBC respectively.

    As u can see i did not get a higher grade. What grades you get at AS is the grade u will usually end up with at A2. This is because you can resit the first 3 papers but since you may be weak at the subjects u will do worse at A2 since papers 4-6 are harder.

    If you go to A2 and work hard I think you will end up with enough points to get into bucks.ISBC andWest london. However Kings and City are out of your reach tbh. I had a look at bucks uni and west london and they do not specify what subjects you need to do at A-level.

    From my experience Phyics, Bio and Chem are VERY hard at A2. Especially Chem! I suggest that you drop that and resit as many papers as you can of the other subjects! Resit papers where you did not score an A from all the modules. Yes, it will be hard work but it will make up for possible bad marks in papers 4-6. Also you will need to read through them anyway for paper 6.

    Also how do you study? Maybe you are doing something wrong? If you work hard you should be able to score higher marks?

    I'm not sure but make sure you get your English checked on your PS afterwards because it's pretty bad. Good luck OP.
