    For AS I got BBBC in biology, maths, chemistry, physics respectively. My teachers might predict me AAA, should I consider applying for medicine or should I just give up.

    And is someone able to help me with my personal statement?

    Being predicted something and achieving it are two different things so talk to your teachers about what they think you can realistically achieve. There are literally loads of resources on TSR so have a good look around. Make sure you've done enough work experience and can demonstrate the essential skills and qualities for a doctor. Please don't send your PS to anyone on the internet you don't know.

    What are UKCAT score?

    How is your personal statement looking?

    I turned those grades to AAB. But certain people got inflated predictions such as AAA from CCB and they achieved offers from UCL etc but never got close to getting the grades. I'm sure you will put in the work in A2 but getting the predictions can often be misleading and getting offers that you cannot realistically achieve. This can cause heartbreak and many people end up in clearing because of this.

    Getting your grades first and taking a gap year wouldn't be a bad idea tbh.
