Retaking A levels/GCSE : Gap yearWatch
So I've just finished my alevels (chem, bio, RS) but don't think I've done too well. I'm wanting to do biomed at Birmingham (and hopefully study medicine at graduate) but won't be able to get in due to my 5/C in GCSE maths. Annoyingly, I didn't know I could retake my GCSE's if I didnt "fail" them. Biomed requires me to have at least a 6/B in GCSE maths. However I'm concerned as I've already finished my a levels (which I'm certain I'm going to have to retake 2 of). Is it too late for me to retake GCSE maths?*Any advice/ websites/ online tutors you can reccomend?
mathsgenie is <3 if u want to get higher marks focus on the grade 7/8/9 topics.
hmmm also mathswatch is good
Thank you! however I'm no longer retaking my gcses or a-levels. By some miracle I've made it to uni through clearing and will be studying biomed in Hull this year. I plan to still pursue medicine. Good luck in your journey to medicine, you're gonna ace those exams. Are u trying for immediate or graduate entry?
Ik it seems properly frustrating with friends going off to uni n staying behind, but it will be for the best, as a whole a year isn't that long. Tbh I got really lucky with clearing, I'm pretty sure you're grades are better than mine so it's all about hard work. The way I see it, it's better to have the 'uni experience', and take time to nature first before tackling medicine, given how competitive and rigorous it is. I'm doing the full 4 years, with the Hope's of attaining a 1st, doing work experience n volunteering then trying for GEM. I've had a look at graduate entries and I think most if them dont even look at aleve, they just want a min of 2:1
