So yeah... I've failed chemistry last year and I'm retaking it this year as an external candidate. I want to get an A grade but I'm finding difficulty with that.
P.S I'm retaking my whole AS level year because Last year I was an idiot and I really regret that. I was going to give up studying but now I'm more determined than ever. I have a schedule for studying, I don't go to school anymore and I study at home.
Since I want to do medicine, 3 years of a level is really really bad and I'm well aware of that however I will try my best to get in.
I want to ask will graduate medicine be better if I done 3 years of A-Level?
By the way I'm getting voluntary experience and work experience from hospitals and GPs as I'm well aware of that.
A recent event in my life made me want to do medicine, even though I have bad grades for AS level, I'm still willing to give it my all.
Thanks in advance.

Hey, I got an A this year in AS chem.
- Print off the speicification and go through it periodically, ticking through things you can do and noting down parts of the spec that you aren't strong/sure on
- Do ALL the past papers before the exam. Start now by doing exam questions by topic. Mark yourself, and if you don't get over 80%, go back and revise then try some more questions
- Understand the exam technique - note down the things in bold in the mark schemes
- If youre doing OCR exam board - machemguy youtube is a lifesaver!
- Also 'physics and maths tutor.com' has a chemistry area tailored for all he exam boards - very good website.
- Print off other people's notes and go through it - I personally think it's a waste of time writing out your own notes for a subject like chemistry.
- Revise as you go along and you should achieve
It's never too late to become a doctor - Good luck!
