    Hey, I'm a student in year 11 and I want to work in a hospital, ideally as a doctor or a dentist, but my average grades for my SATS have left me with C's as predicted grades in high school. I've noticed that many aspirating medics have A*'s as predicted grades.

    In many subjects I either achieve my predicted grade (C) or just go 1 level above (B) or sometimes an (A) . I'm very hard working compared to a lot of people in my school. I get praise form teachers because at this stage in Year 11 they 'predicted' I will only be achievinggrade D1 or C3.

    I revise a lot but I find that my techniques are not making a big enough effect on my grades.

    I aim to study for my Alevels :
    •Biology
    •Chemistry
    •History
    •Psychology

    Guys can you help me. How do I improve my mock grades before May so I can study medicine. Do I stand a chance??? And should I pick these subjects for my Alevels ??

    Wow I remember writing that up^^ now 8 months later I can happily said I achieved 5A's 4B's and 2C's. Yes I passed all my GCSE's!!
    Maths- 6/B
    English Lang- 7/A
    English lit- 7/A
    BIO - B
    Chem-B
    Physics-B
    Re- A
    History- A
    Business studies- A
    DT-C
    Spanish-C

    I currently study Alevel: biology,chemistry and psychology. I didn't do history because I wouldn't have been able to drop it after a year because we don't do AS anymore.

    i don't I want to become a doctor but I am definatly interested in dentistry, and of course medicine as a whole. I'll just have to see what the future hold xxxx

    You still have a chance to get A*s. Use this time to improve which will give you better chances to go to Medical school.

    Mock grades don't matter for anything (only for college offers but many will just accept you anyway after results day if your grades are good enough) so my advice to you is to work on your actual exams coming up instead of your mocks and try and plan ahead for the long term.

    Realistically you'll either need to work harder than you ever have or you won't make any kind of dentistry/medicine course at a good university. And honestly don't even use the argument "I work harder than the others in my year" because honestly, you can only give a f*ck about yourself and noone else at this stage. You can do it but itll be a lot of work.

    Remember they are only mocks, but being completely honest with you, if you get C's in the real exams, your chances of getting into medical school are pretty slim.
    However, you said you want to work in a hospital. Have you thought about being a nurse, a physiotherapist, an operating department practitioner, a pharmacist, a radiographer, occupational therapist, a dental hygienist, a biomedical scientist or a midwife? I know that is a huge list, but that is still just a fraction of the number of different jobs you could have in a hospital!
