Need advice from anyone who did chemistry at A2?

I completed chemistry AS and had hoped to do medicine, but I didn't do as well in my chemistry than my other 3 subjects.

I am wondering now should I drop chemistry - and is there any way i could do medicine without chemistry? Or should i keep on chemistry aswell as my other 3 subjects and repeat my 3 AS exams? And is chemistry A2 any more difficult?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

All of my friends who applied for medicine did A2 chemistry. But I can only really answer your last question: all your subjects will get harder at A2 but you may enjoy the more in depth stuff. I bet you could handle resitting 2 of your AS modules, 3 might feel ridiculous. I advise you to only do 3 subjects at A2. Sorry im not much help but good luck

if you want medicine no, I'm pretty sure it's required. Repeat exams, last chance to work hard though as I think med schools require a levels to be completed in just two years.

Chemistry A2 is a lot harder.
