    I know this seems petty but I am absolutely sick and tired of studying so much for A level Biology and Chemistry and still getting Bs (even recently a D in chemistry!) It is not my revision technique, I know that I am working as hard as I can and as productively as I can. It's simply the fact that I am not naturally good at maths and science. I really want to study medicine but I fear that I will never be as clever or as smart as everyone else when they don't have to study half as much but still do so much better! I have two and a half months left to somehow get 2 A's and I dont know if I can survive it at this point

    Okay, in all honesty you should be getting at least B’s at this point. You can easily do this by thoroughly learning the content (easy said than done, I know), but I also do Bio and Chem as am aiming for Medicine, and manage to learn the content(but there’s a few topics I need to go over). Read the spec and see if you are able to talk about, in depth, the points written.

    Then...practice practice practice! You are obviously ‘able’ if you have the right grades so far for medicine.

    Just don’t get yourself worked up or you will stress out and it’ll go haywire. Revise in chunks and ensure to cover everything at least twice from now until June.

    Okay thanks. I think I'm just stressing myself over nothing at the moment because of mocks. thanks for your advice!

    You have some time to turn things around..but honestly if you’re struggling then i think you should reconsider studying medicine? it’s a hard course and you might not make it through the whole course.
