    I am about to finish my 3rd year doing a biomedical degree.
    I will be taking a gap year to gain work experience in schools and potentially a job to get some money in before I apply to do a PGCE for the following year.

    My A level in biology is appalling. An E. Only reason my uni accepted me was because I attend a very low rank uni. Any way to retake this before I apply for teacher training? is it worth it?

    I don't think its worth it to retake your biology A level considering you are almost finishing your degree.

    Don't look back, focus on the present and future.
