    I would say retake sciences, since a lot of sixth forms require at least a B minimum in sciences that you want to choose. Plus with better GCSEs, Some unis will place you above others.

    Definitely biology and definitely physics. Maths no. Chemistry is up to you. Don't want to overload yourself and end up not doing as well as you could though.

    Most unis that offer Medicine ask for around 7/8 As or A*s at GCSE

    lol take medicine out of your head mate, start looking at our courses you can do.
    trust me when i say if you got those grades at GCSE, which is a walk in the park, your not going to do much better at A-level, if you pick those subjects. there maybe a 1 in a 1000 chance of it happening, unlike what ppl on TSR like to claim.
    also really ask why you wanted to do medicine, most people by A-level or after the first year realize they didnt really want to do it or dont want to anymore. Anyways gonna be honest very unlikely to do medicine with those grades, pick some easier A-levels and get good grades at those and carry on your life.

    Also very few people retake or want to retake GCSEs when doing A-level. Then again GCSE are easy as hell, so i guess you could if you wanted to. Also great GCSEs dont really mean much ( this coming froma person who got great GCSE's , all unis care about is a B/A at maths and english Lang ), unless you want to do medicine and a few other high end courses.

    yh GCSEs are easy as hell, IGCSEs ARENT easy as hell. You know what? I messed up, but i know i can do better, i got those grades bcz i didn't work hard enough not bcz im academically unable.
    Thxs for you advice but NO, i will retake these exams, work harder, then get the grades i want.
    Remember: Success makes you strong, but failure makes you unstoppable.
    I dont believe everyone has amazing grades, unless there geniuses, there bound to fail at least once while in med or even getting a C might be a fail to them. So im not giving up on my dream, im giving up on slacking.
    But again thank you for the advice, im sure you want the best for me, and i cant blame u for thinking that i shouldn't become a doctor.
