I’m looking at studying medicine, but when i took my A levels i didn’t know what i wanted to do and only got CCC in subjects unrelated. I considered resitting my exams but a lot of med schools don’t accept resits unless there are extreme circumstances (which there were not). If i were to take Biology, Chemistry

Do not worry about resits not being accept, there's still 20 med schools that will look at your application even if you resat!

If you sit 3 A levels, in one sitting, including chem and bio and another subject you have not done before and get at least AAA, then very few, if any, med schools would discriminate your results from a first time sitter
