    I have high aims as well and one I have applied to one that wants a A as well but that's a sixth form in the top 10% in the country really hope I get in. I have high Uni aims as well but knowing Medicine is highly competitive not really concerned much about what Uni it is. The medical council does not care about what Uni you have been to. Wish you all the luck with your high aspirations.
    Yeah I noticed the competition for doing Medicine at Uni when I saw the entry requirements to getting into Oxbridge for Medicine haha

    Hi, I want to do medicine too but my teacher predicted me a C in maths which I don't know the reason why as I got a B in maths exams previously.In order do maths at the sixth form that I want to go to you need an A. I could have picked Physics which I had been predicted higher in but I just love maths. But my predicted grade was a C in September, but after that I put all my effort into Maths! That was all I thought about and I practiced every day and recently in January I got A* in my mock maths. I proved my teacher wrong, there is nothing that hard work can't change. I am 100% hoping that I get A* in my final exam too! Hope this helped you to achieve well!

    I have A* in maths A level, and im currently doing the step up course which prepares me for it and tbh it's the number 1 cause of stress for me at the moment. It's all fun and games when learn the steps for a topic and all those cute little rules, but you'll have the shock of your life when you see the exam questions where they mash up different concepts here and there into one ugly question. so after today i've decided not to consider maths a levels and will choose something else. Maths will not affect you in medicines. It might sound biased but my chemistry said you dont even require biology for it, you only need chemistry. but of course having other sciences will open to a lot of field in med
