    Hi. having just finished my exams I think I did well in RE and Psychology but i pretty sure i did really bad in Biology and Chemistry (all AQA). I think my predicted grades will be A- RE or Psychology, B Biology and B for chemistry. I'd like to go into Medicine or Psychology or maybe a science related degree however entry requirements are AAA so my predicted grades are lower. Will universities still accept me? If I turn out getting AAA in A2, will Unis who may have previously rejected me, accept me?

    You will need AAA predictions for medicine, so that's a non-starter, I'm afraid. If you get AAA at A2, you could apply during a gap year. You might have more flexibility with psychology or other sciences.

    Medical schools in particular will be extremely unhappy with Bs in chemistry (the key subject for them) and biology.

    If you end up getting better then your predicted grades then you can go through adjustment (but not for medicine) or take a gap year and apply for the following year.

    BTW there's no disadvantage applying post A-level. In fact it can make you a stronger candidate as you will have known grades and you can do more relevant work, etc in the gap year.
