    They won't ask you why you didn't do as well as others, because they only offer an interview if your predicted grades are the minimum requirement they ask for. Therefore, IF you get an interview it means your grades are high enough.

    And as for your answer, thats a terrible answer, essentially you're saying that the only way you know how to revise i to memorise textbooks (terrible way to revise btw since when you have more content to learn, its impossible to memorise a whole textbook), also it says that you can't cope the the (comparitively minimal) workload of AS'a (so how can you cope with med school workload?) and that you're lazy becuase you didn't put in all your effort. While you realised that you were lazy, don't change the fact that you were lazy

    They won't ask you that - waste of a question and I very much doubt the interviewer is going to have your AS results. Much better use of time to ask you about personal qualities - if you meet the minimum requirements of the medical school (which you would if you're at interview) it wouldn't make any sense for the interviewer to effectively say "oh so you've met the minimum requirements, but why haven't you exceeded them significantly?"
