    Hi, I've obtained 6Bs, and 5Cs at GCSE.
    Maths-B
    Use of maths-B,
    Chemistry-B
    Religious education-B
    Geography-B,
    History-B
    English lit-C,
    English lang-C,
    Biology-C,
    Physics-C,
    Spanish-C

    I hardly revised and was really lazy throughout the entire year.
    I have an offer to study Chemistry,Maths and Religous Studies at a sixth form.
    I wanted to study Biology however it was substituted for R.S.
    I was thinking of retaking 6/7 of the GCSE's; Spanish (Not definite), English language and literature, Maths, Physics,Biology and Chemistry.
    I would be taking the year off to study for these and resit in November and June.I predict that, by genuinely putting more effort into my education, I will achieve all A*s in the subjects I will resit.
    However, would it be worth it?
    And, would it affect my chance of applying to Uni, to study medicine or pharmacy?

    It might, you will need to look at the UCAS website to see if unis accept resits as many may not especially for things like medicine and pharmacy as the competition is tough and they need an excuse to drop people. Hopefully it doesn't.

    Honestly? Yes. Certainly for medicine. Not saying it's impossible but as has been said, medicine is super competitive and many universities won't accept re-sits—whatever the grades you achieve the second time around. I'm not sure I would take a year out to re-sit, I might be inclined to take the A-Levels you've been offered and some advice from your Sixth form about university and career options. Smash your A-Levels and there will be plenty of options open.
