    I have recently got my results for IB, I did have an offer for HYMS buttttt I screwed up. I met their minimum offer of 32 points but didnt get the higher score of 665 I got 554 in highers. So its unlikely they will take me this year
    So my options are:
    1- Do a degree in biomedical science etc and go through the graduate entry route. But I dont think I can afford it/ the whole time scale might not be necessary ifffff
    2- I resit my IB exams in my highers and get something like 666 in my highers. Buttt it seems to close more doors than it opens as so many uni's just dont seem to want resit applicants. I dont have any mitigating circumstances either unless I hurt a member of my family....
    3- Fast track A levels? This was presented to me an option but is it even possible to do a levels in one year IB Chem/ Bio are very similar but is it possible?
    Are there any other options? Would you presonally reccomend any of the options more? Any help at all would be sooo appreciated. Thank you
