Hello
I was wondering If I could have some helpful suggestions.
Basically I am really interested in becoming a emergency medicine physican and was hoping for someone to help me.
I took my core science GCSES early this year because my teacher made me (made everyone sit this year if you were D grade or above)
I think I have done badly and these are my predictions
Biology:C
Chemistry:C
Physics: D
If i was to do really well in my additional and triple exams and get B-A grade would I have a chance at getting into a good university or would my core exams hold me back.
Would getting good A grade a levels help surcure me an opportunity in a good university.
All of my other grades are on target to getting a B grade next year and ict I am predicted an A
Thank you for any helpful suggestions 😊 xx

Firstly, for Medicine, all uni's are good - provided all goes well, you'll end up a doctor wherever you go.

Medicine GCSE requirements can be found here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...e-requirements

I'd suggest retaking next year to push your grades in core science up a bit.

Would getting good A grade a levels help surcure me an opportunity in a good university.
There are loads of factors involved in a Medicine application (GCSEs, A-Levels, entry test, work experience, extra curricular stuff, interviews etc.) so good A-Level grades on their own can't secure a place anywhere for Medicine. You can increase your chances of getting in by applying wisely to Medical Schools that favour your strengths, however.

I can't get my core grades up as I have already done the gcse exams im waiting for my results, apparently you can't retake GCSES any more unless maybe I complain to OCR

Your school may have its own policies regarding retakes but AFAIK, it is still possible to retake GCSE exams.
