Do A levels matter when I have a good degree result?
I'm maybe applying for medicine, at the mo I'm doing a degree in Neuroscience. I had BBC at A level and was wondering does that matter if I get 2.1 or 1st in my degree? I never thought of doing Medicine at first and actually wanted to do Neuroscience. But now I'm more and more interested in the neuroscience aspects of medicine.

Your A level grades will matter (or not) depending on where you apply.
If you get a 2.i, Sheffield want BBC, Cardiff want BCC and I think Barts and Kings want something similar, so you can apply to all of these, at least. Some medical schools disregard A level results altogether with a First (again, I know that Sheffield do).
Give your target medical schools a call and ask them... I'd say you're in a pretty good position at the moment.
