So I finished my GCSEs and I got a 7 in Biology and chemistry but a 6 in maths. I made a lot of stupid mistakes in the biology exams however I'm not really worried about taking bio as an a-level. Its Chemistry and maths which the trouble arises.
Ive never been good at chemistry and always got 4s and 5s in mocks and assessments. I can't even begin to explain how I managed to get a 7 lol. I did revise tho.
Maths - I've always been less than average since sats yr 10 and yr11 not managing anything higher than a grade 5. I did so much past papers nearer to the exams. It would get to the point where I would rage at maths sometimes. I was 3 marks off a grade 7 currently considering a remark.

Overall I would like to assume that if I put in 100% hardwork in my choices no matter its difficulty I would be rewarded with decent alevel grades.
But I want your opinions. Is maths and chemistry the right choice for me? I am really serious about doing my absolute best.

Also - I’m sure you’ll work hard but if medicine is what you want you need 3as at a level minimum and if you got a gcse 6 and didn’t feel that good at the subjects do you think you’ll manage that (it is doable but just something to consider as well as if you enjoy the subjects)
