I want to be a paediatrician in the future so I'm currently doing L2 health and social care as my high school didn't have the option for me to do it. However I have failed science by a few marks which means I cannot do A level science next year. Is there another subject I could take along side Health and social care L3 which would allow me to become a paediatrician?

You can try Applied science? Though I'm not sure of there is an A-level Applied science but there is BTEC Applied science. See if you could do these?

All the best!

To become a paediatrician you first need to qualify as a doctor by doing a degree in medicine, then specialising. To do medicine at uni you should do A level chemistry, and most applicants do at least one other science as well. Be aware that medicine is very competitive - you're expected to have A/A* grades in your core GCSE's and your A levels.

If you don't have the right qualifications you could look into doing a foundation year.
