I need some advice!Watch
I'm having a bit of a dilemma with A level choices and was hoping for some guidance. I am really passionate about medicine and want to study it at university, and before I get any witty or or sarcastic comments, I have looked into study requirements and A levels a lot! I know the only way I've got any sort of chance is by taking chemistry and at least biology as well; I am 100% sure that I'm taking biology but what's holding me back is that I don't know if I'm good enough to take chemistry. It's a no brainier that you shouldn't take a subject like that unless you excel in it, but I don't really know where I stand!
I'm fairly good at maths, although I haven't got my GCSE results back my past papers are normally A grade, so I hope that's not an issue, but for the beginning of year 10 and some or year 11 out class didn't have a proper science teacher! Also, we covered the C6 and C7 exam content in about a month Abby I was expected to teach myself a fair bit of the content at home. Sob story over, basically what I'm saying is I don't know if I'm good enough because I haven't really had the opportunity to show that. Normally I would have given up but I feel the exams went ok.
I'm so sorry I've written a novel here, I'm just in a bit of a flap about it! Could anyone who's been through this or is in the same position offer any advice?
Thanks a bunch in advance!
AS chemistry mainly builds upon what you've already done at GCSE, you should probably choose Chem, roll with it for two weeks then come to a final, educated decision. Even if you don't do chemistry, maths and, for example, further maths should be enough for you to do medicine provided you get the grades
