Most of DDs offers were much the same. One was very much later than the rest as it was as new course being offered and they needed to get it accredited. In the end they decided not to run it and offered DD on the standard course. She was only really interested in that uni for the new course, and it became her insurance, even though it was the same offer as her first choice.

However her first choice reduced her offer by one grade once she firmed them which lowered it to lower than her insurance.

Only one would formally give an alternative offer that would include her EPQ.

What does your DS want to do?


I think you are right. Chemistry is a crucial subject with some also asking for Biology. But why would they do 4A levels and a 5th A level too. I thought it is usually 3 and rarely 4!!!

How sad for the girl. A year at the age of 17/18 is a long time.

To apply for Medicine, Chemistry is a must have subject and usually is the one that require A* if A* is part of the minimum requirement. For any student considering doing both than 3 A levels, they should only doing it if it is considered there is a high possibility of achieving A*. A*A*A* would be better than A*A*AA.
