    You'll have to finish your degree to try for GEM anyway.

    Why didn't you do well at GCSE sciences and why do you now think medicine is a good option?

    GEM stands for graduate entry medicine. So after you have completed your computing degree you can apply for this, provided you get at least a 2:1.

    Try and get some work experience in a medical setting so that you can be sure medicine is for you
