Okay so here are my year 12 grades from my June mocks:
French A
Chemistry C/D (depends on the grade boundaries)
Biology D
Maths C

I know I didn't fail but these are the grades taken into account when making UCAS predictions. Therefore my predicted grades are:
French A
Chemistry B
Biology B/A (currently B but we have another mock in September and my teacher said if I get an A she'll predict me one)
Maths B

My chemistry teacher will not change my predicted grade but my biology teacher said she probably will considering I had been getting straight As throughout the year - including in a January mock.

But I wanted to do Dentistry so badly and now I can only apply to a couple of universities which do contextual offers (e.g. Leeds, Newcastle) which doesn't give me very high chances I think.

I don't particularly want to do Biomedicine and if necessary I would prefer to resit year 12 with new subjects as I am better at Humanities which I would be more passionate about over Biomedicine but I don't think my parents will let me.

Does anyone have any advice? I'm so stressed. Thanksssss!

consider a gap year so you can apply for dentistry with your actual grades?
