Hi Im in year 12 and was looking at UCL for chemistry and I was wondering whether it is worth applying if I decide to do chemistry due to my what I consider not very good to poor GCSE's
I have 10 C's 1 B and resitting my GCSE maths to get it up to an A/A* (I only did foundation in secondary school)
I do chemistry, biology and physics AS-level at the moment (carrying them to A2 and picking up maths AS-level) and will hopefully achieve AAA-AAB at the end of AS. I also had to resit year 12 (It was my fault though)
I have 1 weeks relevant work experience, I am a reading mentor for year 7 students, I help in a classroom for year 9's for science on the C/D borderline at school, I am setting up to do voluntary work to do once a week, I have done 2 4 day team building/problem solving which involved being put into random groups with people from schools in other parts of the country and also produce a presentation and present it to lecturers at the uni it was at (university of Lancaster and somewhere else I cant remember what it was called).
Do you guys think I would stand a chance even with my low GCSE's (they seem to be low compared to alot of people on here and that I know anyway) if I get good AS grades?
sorry for the long question and thanks for any help you can offer
What do you think?
