A-level and GCSE requirements for biomedical science?

Helpp, I really want to become a forensic pathologist and have decided to follow the biomedical science route instead of the medicine/doctor route.
The issue is that I got quite average grades in my GCSE sciences
Biology- 5
Physics- 5
Chemistry- 4
I’m not sure I meet the demand for A-level biology, which is important in securing me in the university course.
I’m thinking of retaking my GCSE biology and any other between physics and chemistry, so I could get into a-level?
I’m not really sure, and it’s just giving me a lot of confusion and stress.
I’m 16 and in Yr 12.
Sorry you've not had any responses about this. :frown: Are you sure you've posted in the right place? :smile: Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there. :redface:

Hey what did you get in your maths because sometimes colleges accept students that did average on their sciences but got a A or something in maths to get on A-level biology.
