I got an E in AS Chem so dropped it after AS. Predicted AAA in Biology, Psychology (which counts as a second Science for Leeds Manchester Newcastle Nottingham) and Politics. Will this put me at a disadvantage as I have applied for biomedical science ?
On my Biomed course in the chemistry module they went right back to basics because a number of people on the course had no previous knowledge of chemistry. If the universities don’t specify that you need to have A level chemistry at x grade, then no, you shouldn’t be at an advantage.
I would, however, recommend that you take some time out of your summer holidays to brush up on your chemistry to make your own life easier once you start your degree.
I graduated with a first class honours last year and I’m now doing an MSc in Cancer Biology.
You'll have key chemistry modules (biochemistry) in Biomedical Science degree's. I got an E at AS too, resat it alongside A2 and got an A. I'm now a Biomedical Scientist working in Biochemistry. Sometimes things just don't fall right in life.
