Ok so, at the moment I have chosen the following A-levels:
I initially wanted to be in events, but I'm quite academic, and therefore want to set my sights a little higher, I'm interested in medicine, but have recently been quite weak in biology, so I'm sceptical about taking it for A-level although I'm predicted an A at GCSE. I'm quite interested in neuroscience - is this completely unrealistic with my alevel choices?
If yes, any ideas on what I could study considering my choices? I'm just looking for ideas at the moment, so anything is welcome! Medicine related or not!
And yes I know how wildly different events and neuroscience are, I have no idea why I find them both so appealing!

Well, you're going to need both A-level biology and chemistry. It's not really an option, both tend to be crucial for life science courses.
However, it's not unrealistic. Some universities, generally weaker ones, ask for one or the other but that is only because the course may have a bias towards one of them. For instance, a degree may not focus much on the cellular level of things, so less chemistry would be required.
If I were you, I would take up Biology even if it is only to AS. It is an enjoyable course and gives you a very good grounding for university. I didn't do amazingly well at GCSE for biology, but I am currently en-route for an A* at A-level for it, and will eventually study it as a degree. So you are fully capable, don't let anyone or anything tell you otherwise.
