Linear A levels - Medicine. Watch
I am currently a Year 12 studying A level Chemistry, Economics and History, which are all linear. At the time of choosing my A levels I wasn't quite sure of the career I wanted, however I've now decided to study medicine. I was wondering if retaking Year 12 would be considered a resit year as medical schools do not allow over 2 of A level study, keeping in mind the fact that these are linear subjects so technically I won't be resitting any exams. Do i have a chance of entering medical school if I resit year 12 doing linear A levels?
I want to retake and take new subjects as I am currently only studying one science, and you need atleast two for medicine. Also I've heard foundation courses are much more competative than the normal course.
All I'm saying is, you might as well move onto the second year with Chemistry so you can learn the A2 content and pick up another Science and see if you could do it in one year. It'll save you learning all of the same content from AS twice. Just seems a waste of time that's all.
But if they will let you repeat the AS year then you'll end up doing 3 years at college, right? So what would be the difference if you were to sit A2 Chemistry, Economics etc and another AS Science next year then complete that to A2 in your third year?
I've told them that I might want to leave, haven't decided anything for sure though!
