    Good luck! I recommend doing lots of extra-curricular work e.g. volunteering at a hospice and doing a first aid course, but I imagine you know that already. That's what helped my brother get into medicine despite not getting 5 As.

    Well he wasn't far off(AAAAB) but it was the extra work outside school that counted - it made his personal statement stand out and gave him extra leverage in interviews. He did get turned down by 3 of the 4 he applied to though, so it was a close thing.
