Since year 11 I've always been interested in applying to Cambridge to study medicine. Open days and trips etc confirmed this for me.
GCSE: 5A*, 7A
AS: A in Maths, A in History, B in Biology, B in Chemistry
A2 Predicted: A* in Maths, A* in Chemistry, A in Biology
I'm banking my AS history and studying 3 A-Levels this year.
The reason my Chemistry is a B with a target of A* is that we changed from the OCR Salters exam board to AQA halfway through the year with limited AQA resources, which will be outlined on my reference.
I have also conducted a lot of good work experience placements, for example teaching first aid in East Africa and shadowing a Consultant Cardiologist at the Freeman Hospital for a week, alongside the usual GP placements etc.
If my BMAT score is high and my Personal Statement and interview are to a very high standard, is there a chance of admission or do the two B's at AS ruin the application for Cambridge? I've heard that they are big on UMS...
Please can you give me your honest opinions?
Half of the top 10 aren't even RG...
