Don't GCSEs play a role in medicine applications too?

The reason they would've rejected you is because they think you'll struggle with the A-Level, because it's much more demanding that GCSE. Same with chemistry.

I expect you will find a sixth form, you just have to do some research and ring them up and ask.

You need to be prepared for some very hard work though, as others have said A Levels won't be easy.

I was 2 marks away from a 6 in biology so they will remark it for me.
However in chemistry i got 84 marks and a grade 6 is 101 marks.

Ask if you can study it for the first term and then do a set of exams after and if you get descent grades then you can carry on but if not your take up another subject ??
Make a deal with them. Say your work really hard just give me a chance and if I don’t prove myself I’ll change subjects

That positive news on Biology, well done. Now time for you to research nearby sixth forms that might let you in.

Likely but not 100% definately. It depends on work ethic people get 9s and end up retaking the year because they were overconfident and were not ready for year 12. It varies

I was in the same position, BSIX college accepts grade 5s for their entry requirements per subject. But a levels are not easy you HAVE TO WORK HARD especially seeing as you got a 5 and most sixth forms ask for at least a 6 or 7
