I don't know what to do I have an offer from my dream university (Edinburgh) for Chinese. But my dream course is medicine (which would mean I need to do chemistry a level and re do biology a level).

I don't know what to do as I am really pleased with the offer from Edinburgh but it is not my dream course. Any advice?

In my opinion, the course is not nearly as important as the city. You are only at the uni for a few years, but the course is for life (especially Medicine)

If your heart is set on Medicine, then redo Chemistry and Biology. Otherwise go for whatever course you have.

if your dream is to become a doctor, maybe it is worthwhile to redo ur a levels, as you'd have a completely different life and career path if you do chinese. would be worth the extra 2 years of a levels

you have options
1) stay do your course and apply to graduate medicine
2) redo your bio and chem a level
3) apply to medicine with a foundation year
