    I don't know if I've done well enough in my A2 exams to get AAA. I still have three exams to go. My issue is, I've already got lots of medical work experience planned for the summer (I'm taking a gap year), so it might all be a complete waste of time
    I'm looking into other options if I don't get the grades; neuroscience/ biomed degree and then postgrad medicine seems like the best option. However, I keep hearing that postgrad medicine is being abolished soon, so is all hope of being a doctor lost if I don't get AAA in August?!

    There are no concrete plans to get rid of grad entry at the moment.

    If the 4 year degree does go, it will likely be replaced by either 5 year grad entry programs or by making undergrad entry more friendly to graduates.

    Just work hard on your remaining exams and plan your gap year well. Nothing more you can do.
