    I was thinking about whether to apply for engineering or medicine as I do mathematics, chemistry and biology. Some good engineering universities like coventry and Birmingham do not require physics but it would be advantageous. I received CCE as my grades, and I'm going to resit maths so I can change my C2 grade of a U into hopefully an A and then B/A overall for the first 3 modules. My biology teacher will probably predict me a B and I'm hoping that my maths teacher predicts me an A as I'm resitting the module which absolutely penetrated me, and I'll try to get my E grade in chemistry to be predicted to a B, it does sound pretty foolish but I've been one of the most vocal students in my class and haven't missed any hw, and I missed one or two lessons so I could maybe sweet talk into that. Now to my main point, using the A2B scheme for university of Birmingham which I'm eligible for I can put the entry requirements of AAA down to a ABB which is to my logic possible, but I could also apply for engineering which has a entry requirement of AAB and using the A2B scheme I could get it down to either a BBB or ABC which seems more plausible, any advice would be appreciated!

    And is it possible to apply with two different courses on the same site?

    You can't apply to medicine without AAA as far as I m aware and you certainly can't apply to those two subjects at the same time, your personal statement wouldn't work just to start with. A teacher shouldn't be predicting an E to a B really. Engineering sounds like something you're more suited to, most people would apply to medicine with an A in chemistry.

    You can, but you will not be successful trying to apply to both Medicine and Engineering. You won't be able to provide a strong personal statement for both courses.
