    hey guys, basically, I got my results today and didnt get the grades in biology and chemistry i needed to get into a-level chem and bio. In other words, I can't become an oncologist or orthopaedic surgeon like I wanted to be for ages.

    Anyway, my back up plan has always been surgeon/oncology > paramedic > firefighter > programmer.

    So with these grades, and these A-levels, am I on set to becoming a paramedic??

    English Lang: B
    Lit: C
    Maths: B
    History: C
    Photography: C
    Computer Science: A
    Bio: C
    Chem: C
    Physics: C
    and at A-level im doing,
    Health and social
    Computer Science.

    what are my other options?? I have an interview at my first choice school for sixth form and im subbing law and accounting in for bio and chem because i didnt get the b i needed...
