I got my results yesterday (AS) and wasn't please with what it had to say.
B (226/300) - maths
C (201/300) - Chemistry
D (169/300) - Physics
D (171/300) - Music
As you can see those results are never going to get me into medical school or even looked at. However, i have still got the ambition to study medicine and still think there may be hope but i would like others opinion on my thoughts...
This year (honestly) i didn't try my hardest or close to what i know i can. I did some revision for maths but that's about it. I know that the next year (A2) is again marks out of 300 so i was thinking of putting all my effort in this time. In everyday from 4pm-10pm from september to june next year. If i do this i may be capable of the following grades...
A* (A2 exam 270/300) overall (496/600) - Maths
B (A2 exam 219/300) overall (420/600) - Chemistry
B (A2 exam 251/300) overall (420/600) - Physics
Then pick up Biology and get A/B at AS level with my D in music aswell.
Thus leaving me with A*BBad
I would have work experience, volunteer work for the british heart foundation, volunteer work for a befriending service with elderly people and show a personal interest in medicine
My overall question is, if i was to achieve all of the above next year, take a Gap year out and apply for 2015, would a place at medical school be realistic?
Any advice/help/input would be greatly appreciated - Thanks
I did bad in my AS and want to get into medical school is there still hope? Watch

To be completely honest, unless you have all A*s and As, there is a very slim chance. My head of sixthform said that about 80,000 people apply for about 4,000 places. I'm not saying you can't pull up those grades and get in, but really think about having a back up plan too. Good luck
