    I recently got my GCSE results ( i missed results day as i was in Italy) and i didnt get the results i was expecting. I didnt do badly, i just expected different results.
    I got :
    4 B's: History, Economics, English Lang and Add Science
    5 A's: Spanish, French, ICT, Maths and Core Science
    1 A*: English Lit

    I was really really happy with Spanish, as i took it as a subject in year 10 having had no previous with it. I was conversely dissapointed with Economics and history, both i was targeted A's in.
    Before the results, i was think about a career in medicine, however, after seeing these results, im not sure what to do.
    I was thinking about taking these:
    History (AS only)
    Economics
    Chemistry
    Biology.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much, as long as you put the effort in in 6th form and get good grades at AS, as this is what interviewers are more interested in!

    You got an A grade in core science which is the most important thing, and your GCSE grades are otherwise good. You will be fine to apply to medicine if you want to. Make sure you do Chemistry and ideally Biology A-levels (though ity's not compulsory) and sort out the usual pre-requisites; work experience, references and the A grades at AS-level.
