I applied for medicine last October and got rejected pre-interview from everywhere. For medicine you have to apply by Oct 15th and exams are in October so a lot of people who want to do medicine are confused about how to apply this year so I’m not sure what I’ll do. I’d rather apply to medicine with the necessary grades but it means I’ll miss the deadline if I take the exams first. So I’ll have to take a double gap year. Wouldn’t be too bad if I had something to do but I don’t. I’m trying to find a job and get some work experience but alas, Covid and the fact that I have only 9 months retail experience means I’ve had no luck on either part :/ but thanks, I’m discussing next steps with my teacher on results day so I’ll decide what I’m doing then

So I've guessed my rank order based and made a rough guess at the number of As or A*s that will be given based on the data I could find. I didn't have my rank for most tests unfortunately but I have rough idea. ( High ≈ Top 5 ). Grade boundaries fluctuated so I think rank order is the most important thing to look at here. I'm really just hoping there is good number of A*s should be fine for As.

Physics
13 Students ≈ 1/2 A*s , 3As
GCSE:
- 9
Mocks :
- Y12A A Predicted B ( Rank High )
- Y12B D Predicted B ( Rank Mid)
- Y12C A Predicted A ( Rank 1st )
- Y13A B Predicted B ( Rank 3rd )
UCAS Predicted:
- A*
Topic Test (Over 20 tests) :
- Y12 AVG C ( Rank High )
- Y13 AVG A (1 Rank 1st, Most Rank High)
Expecting
- A*/A
- Rank 2nd/3rd

Chem
30 students ≈ 2A*s , 6As
GCSE:
- 8
Mocks:
- Y12A B1 Predicted B ( Rank High )
- Y12B D1 Predicted C ( Rank Low )
- Y12C A Predicted A ( Rank 2nd )
- Y13A A Predicted A ( Rank 3rd )
Topic Tests:
- B A A
UCAS Predicted :

Expecting:
- A
- Rank 4th


Maths
40 students ≈ 3A*s , 15As
GCSE Grade:

- Y12B A* Predicted A ( Rank High )
- Y13A A* Predicted A* ( Rank 2nd )
UCAS Predicted:

Very in depth, but I don't think you're far off. Hopefully you get the grades you deserve!

It's good that you can be confident with at least 1 subject. Is your school quite a high achieving one. Mine is pretty much bang average.

My school is barely above average. The average grades for the past 3 years have been:
2019: C+
2018: B-
2017: C-
And about 10% of students achieve AAB or higher. We’re the best sixth form provider in our area but since most sixth forms in our area are below average and low performing, were really only the best because were better than the others.

I have pretty much the same story mine has been C-, C, C and 16% AAB. And ours is the best in the area🤣

The rank order will probably be the most important thing. Do you have any data on your schools exam performance in previous years? It could be better in certain subjects. I know that in maths 45% get A/A* and 66% >=B and 90% >= C. Where as the school average is 26% A/A*. So being mid in maths would get you an A or B quite likely.

I haven’t been able to find any of that information. My school is a stand alone sixth form and we’ve been open since 2014 so we’re still quite new tbh and were also rather small (about 200 students across both year 13 and year 12) so i don’t know if exam specific data would be published. Where would I find it as it isn’t on our official website?

I struggled to find anything as well. I just stumlbed across a file on the website for people applying for maths A level from 2017. I don't have anything accurate for the other subjects or any other years. I've requested it but I think I'll be waiting a long time. Some 6th forms ( Not surprisingly the better ones) have them on their websites though.
