    Are these grades okay?

    History - A
    Geography - A
    Business - Distinction*
    Health and Social - Distinction
    English Language - 6
    English Literature - 7
    Science Core - A
    Science Additional - B
    Maths - 7

    Do you think doing A Levels is worth it? I feel so bad for getting these grades :/ I want to do Law or Pharmacy, let’s say I get three A*s in A Level, could I have a chance in applying for medicine? (History , Biology and Chemistry)

    yes you definitely have a chance just pick 2 sciences at a level id recommend chemistry and biology as most universities ask for those and u can pick a third subject of ur own choice getting A*AA would get you into a good university

    I'm sorry but I don't know what distinctions are in terms of grades (I'm assuming they are good here though), but you have an above average, solid set of GCSE results; and let me tell you, it is always better to try to further your education rather than give up.
    Its been a struggle with me because I've been suffering with depression since the end of my GCSE exams, and my results didn't help. At the moment I feel like a disappointment, so i can relate to how you feel; which is where this advice comes in, my mum said this to me (she's a teacher): "students who at least try and fail A levels are respected more than those who quit". Definitely do A levels, and at least apply for medicine, if you don't get in, I guess its not the end of the world, even though it wont help with your confidence. But you're more likely to get a job with 3D's at A level then getting one with any amount of A*'s at GCSE. It shows you've at least furthered your knowledge, and firms respect that...

    Pharmacy easy just do chemistry at least and maybe biology. Pharmacy isn't as stressful as medicine or as long or as competitive. You can actually have a life outside work.
