    Hi guys
    I'm going into year 13 doing English language, Biology and Chemistry.
    My predicted grades will most likely be
    English - a*/a
    Biology - a/b
    Chemistry - b
    ( I've also got an A in AS Geography)

    Obviously these aren't high enough for medicine and that is the only thing I want to do, so I've been looking into med with foundation years and I do fit the general requirements of having a low house hold income, deprived secondary school, first generation of my family to go into higher education and also had medical problems this year. I know I can achieve A*AA next year but my predicted grades won't be that high.

    Will I be able to apply for medicine with the foundation if I get AB B predicted grades, and then if I achieve the standard AAA, not have to do the foundation year? I have relevant work experience so personal statent will be good , ok GCSEs (2a*7a1b) and am sitting ukcat in a couple of weeks but hopefully that goes well.

    Never looked into the foundation year before but seems perfect for me, unless I'm missing something.
