    I did my core science and additional science a year early in year10, I got two A grades overall. Doing further additional science this year and target is A*. R the two A grades I have for core and Add good enough to apply to a uni like kings for medicine or should I attempt to retake and try for the A*'s. If u need extra predicted grades or anything to help answer plz ask. I might be a bit young for this but I want to prepare to the best.

    You do realise Medicine applications are based on more than just your science grades. And as for Kings, UKCAT plays a big role too.
    But there is nothing wrong with those As.

    Well I just love to to learn stuff about the body and how it works and ways to treat diseases. In basic terms as I'm not writing a statement here. I love to learn and help people in the future. Doing medicine can allow me to do both. Treat/care for people and learn more to better myself. When I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes quite a few years ago and when I started to understand what it was it motivated me to do some thing about diseases like diabtes. Help find cures. Or help people dealing with these illnesses or need help.
