    I have found that on my results day, I achieved a grade B in core science of which I sat in year 10. This has really sent my heart to my arse as I've always been expected to achieve at least an A* plus science has always been the one thing I have been good at, I thought, and have wanted to eventually study medicine.
    I have achieved an A in Biology, A in Chemistry, A in my Controlled Assessment and a B in Physics and overall got a B. My physics apparently set me back as I'm not the best at it.
    I am wanting to do Chemistry, Biology and Physics at A level and I really want to get the best marks I can in them which I think I can. If I struggled some with GCSE Physics, will I manage it at an A level?
    Would this set me back in future? Should I think of something else to do as a profession seeing as I'm obviously not that great at it? And does this grade really matter to Universities if I really try to get great A levels?
    Sorry for so many questions but if you could reply, it would really help me and ease my mind

    It might be a problem only if you intend to do Physics at uni if not then I think you should be fine with those choices if you really put in the effort
