    Hey guys!

    I'm currently waiting for my AS-Level results, but I'm having doubts about how well my results are going to be...

    All I've ever wanted to do was study Medicine, anything else never appeals to me. Don't get me wrong, I understand fully about all the hard work and dedication you need in order to study the course and I am 100% ready for that.

    However, I don't think my grades will show the Universities on how much I want to do Medicine. I'm really scared that I won't get it at all.

    Does anyone know if it's too late to study hard to boost my grades during my A2? I'm already getting a head start by looking at the topics in Biology and Chemistry and Maths in my A2 during the summer.

    And if it IS too late, would Universities accept re-sits? Or how are Gap Years going to help me get into Medicine the second year round? I understand there are alternative routes, but what are the chances of getting into Medicine through that?

    I hope everyone will be as nice as possible and help me out on this, I want nothing more than to be a doctor and I fully regret only realising now that I should've done better with my grades.

    For my IGCSEs, I managed to get 2A*s, 7As and 3Bs. And I've done some work experience too.

    I would love to hear of any good advices or words or encouragements or even stories of anyone who's made it with low A-Level grades or anything else!

    Thanks all

    Work your ass off and get the grades this year. This might help:

    You might fail to get offers this year due to poor AS-results. But if you resit them and get better grades and come out with good A-level grades overall then you should get an offer if everything else is strong enough the following year.

    I told you before about my two friends with poor grades who both had no offers, but resat the AS-modules and turned everything round and got offers the next year.
