    I have grade B in biology and I'm really worried this grade is going to stop me from being able to do a job in medicine. I am really unsure if I should resit because all my teachers are insisting that I shouldn't but I feel like if I do get a better grade there would be better options for me in the future I'm so worried and confused as to what to do is it okay if someone could help me?

    I wouldn't resit, yeah there will be more competitive applicants but I doubt the reason you don't get an offer will be down to your gcse biology grade. Just make sure your biology a level predicted grade is an A or above

    Forget about the B in GCSE, you'll need a better grade at A Level Biology.

    Don't worry! As everyone has said above, all you need to do is focus on getting great AS / A2 or linear A level grades when it comes round to it.

    When it comes to applying to med school, if you don't think your GCSEs are as strong as you'd like them to be, then avoid applying to GCSE heavy med schools like:
    Birmingham
    QUB
    Cardiff
    Edinburgh
    Oxford

    Good luck with it all!
