    So, I'm in a slightly awkward situation because I've just sat my exams for GCSE and awaiting results. I didn't do as well as I wanted it to go, all of the exams went "alright", but I just feel I'll probably end up with a string of Bs when I wanted majority As

    I've chosen my A Levels (Bio, Chem and Geog) as A Levels for Medicine, in case I want to do it after sixth form, because I really would like to do something in health care. However, I'm also interested in doing law, so would there still be a chance of me doing this course with the A Levels I've chosen.

    This situation is awks because I don't even know if I want to do Chemistry, so I might swap it with Psychology, and I might get sh*t GCSE results and wouldn't be able to do medicine anyway, so then I wouldn't chose Chem.. I'm just very muddled lol. Plus, my Bio and Geog exams didn't even go well

    Any facilitating subjects are fine for Law. You'll end up doing better than you think for your results - I realised that I've been concentrating more on the mistakes I've made than the things I got right. It seems like you've messed up your exams, but chances are you probably haven't.

    Hopefully! I just don't want to be that person who doesn't get the results they expect, and like everyone around me getting As and I'm here getting Bs... I just feel like it will be really awkward, and I'm stressed about this summer which is so stupid because it's supposed to be the best summer of your school life! I'm dreading things like Sixth Form Induction Day

    Bio is a lovely subject! - goes well with human geography if you're on AQA
    Don't do chem, you'll regret it

    This made me lol

    Chem is one I'm on the fence with... It's apparently one of the hardest A Levels, and I really like the subject, but it's kinda concerning that I find GCSE hard (especially C3 on AQA wht is that..)

    Well, I did the old-style A levels and I do biology, chemistry and geography (just finishing up my A2 exams now), but I don't think the content will change much with new A levels.

    Biology is pretty interesting, a lot to learn. Geography actually sorta suits law, as you'll can practise longer questions, and at A2, there is an essay. It hones your extended writing skills.

    Chemistry... is awful at A2. Psychology, I've heard has a ridiculous amount of memorising, however, lots of people who take it do like it.

    This is why I'm worried about taking Chem, but you have to have it for Medicine...

    What makes Chemistry bad? Really curious just because you've been there done it I just don't want to flop my A Levels because I can get away with flopping GCSEs but not A Levels..

    anyone can do law with any facilitating A levels. it's a course that doesnt require a specific a level, though they do say it's nice to have an essay topic like geography

    B's are fine grades anyway, and most unis care more about A Level grades than GCSEs. Don't dwell on GCSEs too much, as you can't change the past now. Think ahead positively - at A Levels you won't have to be doing the subjects you hate and you'll get more independence

    I do those exact subjects for A level, currently in year 13 now, - not going for law though
    I think they should be ok but I would suggest doing maybe a more proper essay subject? Geography does have essays but not as intensely as something like English or History

    Universities in Scotland look for A Level or Scottish Higher English as a definite subject you should take for entry into Law. Im not sure about England though. Why dont you look at the unis and see their grade requirements? I recommend swapping Geography for English, also I don't think Geography has anything to do with Medicine either so if you pick English you'll have a better chance of getting into Law.
