Yes it’s possible... medicine isn’t all about chemistry, just a stereotype.

Yes. There is no pure chemistry in the degree, it's just an entry requirement.

Most medicine unis want an A at chemistry, at least in scotland. Try your best though if you're bad it'd still be fine in theory.

As long as you can get an A or A* in the A-level, that’s all that matters. Doesn’t matter that you don’t enjoy it - it’s needed to get into the degree but not after that. I think the first time anyone mentioned anything to do with chemistry was a 4th year anaesthetics module lecture when someone began talking about partition coefficients. Thankfully it was short lived and I’ve not had any need for it since then, either!

Thank you, I was panicking there would be a lot more chemistry because I hate it but I love biology
