i thinks its always worth a try. im not intending on doing medicine myself. but i got 4 a's 1 b n 3 c's at gcse and my teachers are still intending on me getting into one of the high universities even tho im not doing to well in lessons atm either. if u show your teachers that you really want it and work your arse off over the next two years you will get your grades and well at the end of this year.. if you have good grades your teachers will have no other option than to raise your predictions. if theyre all high grade a's then your ums marks will be high aswell and they cant predict you to be low next year if youve alredy got high ums points to add to your final score
good luck xx
why don't you apply to an international uni?
OP: How about you apply for the Access to Medicine course? My friend who is from Bulgaria and arrived to the UK in 2004 has had 3 offers that way; it's for those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds or haven't had the English education system for that long. The grade offers are generally lower, she's been offered BBB. Anyway, how about you do some research on that?
AS & A Levels
Three A Level subjects are required. Of these, Chemistry or Biology is essential plus one subject from Chemistry, Biology, Physics or Mathematics, plus one further rigorous academic subject if only 2 sciences are offered. If Chemistry is not taken at A Level, it must be offered at AS Level, grade B minimum. General Studies is not accepted as one of the three A2 level subjects. If only two sciences are offered, the Science subjects not offered at AS/A Level are required at GCSE Level, ideally at grade B or above.
Grades of AAB will be required at A Level. It is not necessary for a grade A pass to be achieved in Chemistry or Biology. (Although the majority of students will be offering four AS Level subjects, those able to offer only three will not be disadvantaged).
If you are not sure as to the acceptability of your subjects, please check with the Admissions Administrator and for any further information on 'rigorous' subjects.
I've so many ideas on what to do now =D thanks and God bless all you guys and people who invented TSR! xD
