wow you've done great in your U6 mocks - no-one in our school got A* in chemistry mocks this year (our U6 mocks were a few weeks ago). best of luck for medicine though. I applied for Birmingham this year and got a rejection too.

Damn you must’ve worked hard to get from your AS mocks to your A2 mocks.
How did you get an A* in your Chemistry mock?(Revision techniques wise?)
What exam boards are you doing for Chemistry and Biology?

Aqa for both
In terms of revision learn definitions like stardard enthalpy of lattice formation and stuff like that and past papers ( its funny how i dont take my own advice anymore but they work )

I forgot to say the stuff about predictions not that it matters now but just for the background especially for bio . In year 12 ( i went to a different school for sixth form ) during parents evening mind you these teachers dont even know me . How can you come to a student and say Oh i dont think medicine is the right course choose a different one or make a backup choice based on some stupid chart thing that predicted your grades at the grade of year 13 based on GCSEs to them basically i am a C student right so for bio originally they predicted me a C mind you these teachers know that your girl wants to do medicine . So i had to fight and discuss with them why this was the case because after those mocks every test after that i got A s and before the mocks as well but they only move it to a B so i just want to get the grade for medical school and to prove myself to myself and everyone else like you are not God for you to tell me you cant do this or that you get me but yh just a little rant and background
