    If your school predict you a B in chem you may have a hard time, but if you can get predicted AAA to include chem and bio then you should have a better chance. Saying this a lot of med schools would still consider you with a B predicted in chemistry, I cannot speak for the ones above (UCL probably not though as they do require A*AA) but have a look around.

    Are you taking all 4 to A2?

    You need chemistry at an A - either way. Try and talk to your teachers about upping the prediction.

    Hopefully i can talk to the teachers and see what they say, need to wait until school starts which is a pain

    I wanted to drop english lit but my school is picky on which subjects to drop, since i got an A in english and B in chem, they would rather me drop chem.

    I will talk to the teachers though thanks

    I'd advise to take chemistry for medicine - the vast majority of medical schools need it.

    Don't let them make you drop chemistry! Say you need it for your application, they can't make you do a subject you don't want to do

    Fight your hardest - say you'll work hard and are happy to maybe do a mock exam for your teacher to show that you've been working at it, etc?
