How do you not do chemistry at GCSE? Every school does it?

Are you thinking of taking chemistry A-Level? If not it would be extremely difficult to do it at uni. You can still take chemistry A-Level if you haven't done the gcse but obviously you would have to put in a lot more work

So do you want to work in the medical field or do a chemistry degree?

This is the Medicine forum so we're obviously here to advise on getting into medical school. Which science GCSEs are you doing? There are medical schools which would accept you without GCSE/A level chemistry, but you would need to check carefully. This is a good resource, though requirements may change by the time you get round to applying:

Er...can you? A level chemistry stretches many students who have done well in GCSE - can't imagine it would be manageable for those who haven't studied it at all after year 9

Nah they don't. Most state schools do double or triple science where you learn each one. Where I did my A Levels, and GCSEs, we were allowed to choose if we wanted to do all three or just two of the sciences, as we did IGCSE each science was a different subject all together. Though, most people did all three.

I'm not saying this at all because it's still not clear what you're asking about. Do you want to study medicine or chemistry? I've assumed it's medicine since you're posting in the Medicine forum. Maybe you could clarify?

Okay, in the UK you don't need to study chemistry at medical school. So problem solved :borat: Apply to the medical schools which don't require GCSE or A level chemistry and also check if you are eligible for any foundation/widening participation courses.
