If I got a B in Gen Chem, will I be ok in future sciences (ochem, physics, biochem??)
I'm a fourth year student that decided to pursue medicine after a long period of contemplation. I ultimately decided I should at least give it a shot instead of regretting it in the future. I like bio and am good at memorization but struggle with math and chemistry. I took gen chem this semester and worked the hardest I ever did throughout my four years in college. The material isn't necessarily difficult and I did all the practice problems and homework problems but the tests are really conceptual and nothing like the practice problems, which is why I haven't aced a single exam so far. Ultimately I'll be finishing the course with a B or B+ but I question whether this is the right path for me if I already struggle with general chemistry. Will I be able to do better in Physics and Biochem when I can't even get an A in gen chem? (I go to a top 20 school so I'm just hoping my sciences courses at my postbacc institution won't be as difficult). I ask because Postbacc is very expensive and I don't know if my will and effort alone will help me get into medical school if I struggle in the sciences.
