    I am thinking of taking Biology, Psychology and one from either physics or chemistry. I have been doing research online and you need 5 A's at least, to become a doctor.

    I need help on maths, biology, physics and chemistry. It is not as if I do not revise, I made cue cards and loads of revision material and I stay back with my teachers and ask them for websites which do not help. Is there any tips on getting better? I do not have long till my GCSE's and I am not getting the grades I want. Please is there any guidance?

    do questions that is the only way to go after making notes

    get the specification make sure your notes are conscise

    go over notes, do questions mark see what u got wrong do it over for all topics in 2 months time you'd have covered everything fully.

    simple really.

    Understanding and knowing the specification and mark scheme is a big help, really important to take time to learn this. If you know how the examiner is marking your work and what marks are being awarded for then it's a lot easier to design your answers to maximise these marks. Lots of past papers and practice questions, especially for maths as the more you do the better it sinks in and is retained. I haven't done the other sciences but certainly for biology it's important to really understand the content, don't just memorise everything, you need to understand how and why things work in a certain way. Know your terminology well and make sure you use that terminology/key words in your answers. Good luck!

    Most universities require you to take chemistry if you want to do medicine, so if it is between chemistry and physics, I would suggest choosing chem.
