    individual grades:
    (core science)
    biology - A*
    chemistry - A*
    physics - B
    overall = A

    (additional science)
    biology - B
    chemistry - A
    physics - B
    overall = B

    (extension science)
    biology - B
    chemistry - C hahAha
    physics - B
    overall = B

    ok so i've successfully achieved my place in 2 prestigious schools but unfortunately, they couldn't grant my wish to study bio and chem for a levels bc i achieved a B in additional science.

    i cannot deny the fact that i took advantage of my academics and simply did not reach my full potential but how can i convince these people that i'm not the same person i was 3 months ago? how can i assure them that the grade i achieved was just a wake up call, knowing i could've done so much better if i tried?

    i've got an interview with them tomorrow to discuss what i want to do next and if i were to stay, what suitable a levels could they suggest for me to study

    but i really want to do bio and chem so i can study medicine

    i can't allow a letter on a piece of paper become an excuse for me not to study the subjects i need to help pursue my desired future career

    Attempt to enrol at another school, seriously you have to do the subjects you enjoy and want to do! Believe me, if you choose a sixth form over A level choices you will regret it! I regret not moving sixth forms to take the subjects I wanted.

    If you're desperate to study medicine which will consume most of your life, I would advice trying to convince your desired school to accept the grade or apply to a new sixth form.
    If you chose new subjects you won't be able to do medicine as Chemistry is vital. It depends what you want, a prestigious school for two years or a dream career for life. my advice would be find a sixth form that will accept you because you've done so well. Well done and Good Luck.
