    Hiii guys,I have a major dilemma!!!! So I just finished Year 12 and am studying Biology, Chemistry and Maths with the intention of studying Medicine at Uni. However, I received a D in Biology and a U in Chemistry. My school gave me a conditional offer, if I get at least a C in Math, I can carry on with Chemistry next year. However, I don't know if it would be a wise choice to carry on. I tried very hard in Chemistry, but not my best. I also received 0 tuition, so may dad did say if I wanted to carry on with Chem that he will hire a tutor for me. So can someone please give me some advice on what to do. Also, Chemistry is not my strong suit. I am much better at essay based subjects, if I reflect on GCSE grades.
    PLEASE SOMEONE GIVE ME SOME ADVICE, SHOULD I SCRAP MY DREAM OF STUDYING MEDICINE OR NOT, PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

    Realistically those grades aren't gonna cut it for a course like medicine. And I don't think admissions like medicine applicants to retake a year of A/AS Levels. You might have to give it up

    Univeristies no longer look at your AS grades. If you can get your predictions to at least AAA, then definitely apply for medicine. If not, don't be afraid to take a gap year and apply next September after you received your A2 results.
    Chemistry is such a hard A level and everyone finds it difficult. Over the summer, keep working and ensure you understand the AS chemistry so that you can grasp A2 chemistry as well
    And no, don't scrap your dream of doing medicine Just don't be afraid to wait another year if you need to
