    I'm 17 years old, doing my second year of A levels with psychology, English language and biology. I got BBD last year and I am going for AAB this year with one resit in biology if necessary. Everyone is currently applying for universities and I want to apply for a medical foundation course at Nottingham university which requires special circumstances (which I have) and BCC with chemistry. I haven't taken chemistry at AS or A2. I was also looking at biochemistry with the same issue, is there any advice anyone can give me on what my options are and what I should do? Thanks!

    Chemistry is essential for medicine and biochemistry so you need to take the AS and A2 in chemistry somehow really.

    I am planning on doing an EPQ on chemistry but I suppose I'll have to do another 2 years of three more A levels including chemistry, but will universities turn me down for that? Thanks for your input!

    Does your school or college allow anyone to do both the as and a2 chemistry in one year?
    You need to contact each university to know for sure, medicine courses will be quite specific in what they want i presume and biochemistry could be similar.

    I'm not sure actually, I could ask the question but I doubt it. And yes I'll have to go to a few open days or contact them for further details but so far it seems my options are really limited.
