    So I've been predicted the following grades for my GCSE exams:

    English Literature - B
    English Language - A*
    Maths - A
    Further Maths - A
    Biology - A
    Chemistry - A*
    Physics - A
    World Studies (RS) - A*
    German - A*
    Geography - A
    Drama - A
    BTEC Sport - Distinction

    But what jobs could I do with these grades, if I was to achieve them? Would I even be able to get into the medical industry with a B grade?

    I want to work either in medicine or law, but I don't really know what grades you need to get, as an average, to even study law at university... are there any well-paid, enjoyable jobs I can do with my grades?!

    (I'm doing Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Psychology at A-Level if that helps at all.)

    Honestly, there's more weighting on your AS grades, the entry exam (UKCAT or BMAT) and the interviews compared to your gcses. Your one B is fine. I know a lot of people who's successfully gone on to medical school with multiple Bs.
    Plus those are predictions anyway - you can do better than that if you don't like the B prediction.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
