    AS results: A in Geography, B in Biology (A if remark goes up), C in Chemistry, C in History, B in EPQ on Embryonic Stem Cell Research.

    I repeated year 12, so I am now going into year 13 which will be my 3rd year in 6th form. I have had very good work experience at a pharmacy and The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I will most likely have predicted grades of AAB or higher. I will be applying for Biomedical Science at university. What are my chances of getting offers from top 20 and top 30 universities, for example from Surrey, East Anglia, Southampton, Kent, Birmingham (examples), with my profile, despite me going to spend 3 years in 6th form?

    I don't think spending 3 years in 6th form will stop you if you are determined (and you sound it). I know people who got onto good courses are 3 years in 6th form - it shows persistence.

    Just make sure that the unis that you apply to have a range of grades for entry and allow resits. I don't know what those unis require for Biomed, but make sure you apply to some with high grades requirements and some with lower grade requirements (if that's possible with biomed).

    Edit: I just asked one of my friends who did 3 years at 6th and applied for biomed. They got lower grades than you and got in - it wasn't a top 30 (it was an "ex poly") but they are now a research tech at a university.
