it is possible but i think you would have to do alot of extra work and additional holistic learning to support you. Overall your grades are not that bad especially science but its the maths that will let you down. people will have higher grades than you so you will have to work extra hard to stand out and achieve better A-levels.

There will be people with higher grades and better scores but at the end of the day if you work your ass off you will get there. You dont need to get into a really good uni cuz once you have you degree people dont look at the uni that much and when you become a doctor or whatever you want to be it does not matter how you got there or whatever extra things you did to scrape back from your grades. i know people who did really badly in gcses but got better for a -levels and uni and now she is an optomatrist lecturer at a really good uni. so it is possible
