Need some advice.. watch

    • Thread Starter


    The thing is that during year 11 there were a lot of family things going on, which made it a bit hard for me to study but I still managed. I took a year off to sort these things out and get back into normal state, and now I am ready to go back to my education.

    I would like to apply for A-level biology and chemistry, but from what I am reading in the requirements I believe I would not be able to make it. I have a high 4 in Higher Mathematics and 5 in both English Literature and Language. My core and additional science were at a C level. I would like to pursue a career in Medicine, so this is my only way of doing it. From what I have seen these grades are not good enough to join an A-level course. I was thinking about doing a year in college to retake my exams and then move onto my A-levels, but I am unsure.

    If someone has any advice for me on what I should do I am ready to accept anything.

    Thank you!
