I want to repeat at a different college as my AS results came pretty badly. I initially wanted to take chem and maths but i wasnt allowed to when my gcse results came out as a b instead of an a. This meant that i had to change half of my wanted subjects into subjects that won't help me with my desired uni course. However, if i were to repeat a year and i wanted to do medicine at uni, would I have less of a chance of going to a good uni doing medicine as i repeated a year?

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

I don't have a huge amount of knowledge about medicine, but I don't think you'll be judged that badly at all if you were to repeat a year as long as you perform well overall. A far as the university knows, there are a number of reasons why you may have had to repeat a year, so as long as you get the required results at the end, they'll see that you're capable of performing at a high level. I think there's also a special medical entrance exam needed when you apply to medicine courses, so that will also be important.
