    My AS results were:

    Economics - A
    Chemistry - C (Mid C)
    Maths - C (5 UMS off a B)
    Physics - D

    and for GCSE I've got 3 A*, 6 A's (including all 3 sciences and maths) , 3 B's and 2 C's

    I was extremely disappointed when I found out what grades I've got. I was actually shocked that I got a D in physics as I was very confident about it and also, Economics was actually the subject that I was the least confident with.

    Anyway, does anyone think it's still possible for me to get into medical school?? because I really want to study medicine and please give me some advice because I don't know which subject to drop and what I should do to increase my chances to get into medicine. I'm really worried that my future is over.

    In short, yes.

    Retake Chemistry and Maths in Jan, and work extra hard for your A2's.

    edit: So you guys don't have Jan exams anymore, retake them in June but it won't be easy. You can still do it if you're motivated and determined though. Best of luck.

    I think your best bet is to smash your A2 year (seriously smash it) get AAA and reapply on a gap year

    So should apply this year too?? and should I drop Economics or maths because if I don't get into medicine then my plan B would be applying for economics and most uni's require A level maths??

    It's certainly worth trying. It will get you used to the application process.
