    Well, I want to go into medicine, but I cant do GCSE maths so like A-level is a no go & I was thinking that even if I can't get into medicine, I have law as a kind of back-up?

    Generally you need Chemistry and then one of Physics, Maths or Biology, so they should be fine as long as you do very well at the science subjects. However, if you can't do GCSE maths, then you might find a lot of the skills you'd need in Medicine very difficult. I get the feeling that you're basing your choice of degree more on the prestige of the subject rather than your skills and enjoyments, as Medicine and Law are very different areas. Maybe have a look on the Medicine and Law forums and ask some questions about what the courses involve and how suited you'd be
