    I am a year 13 student and I study A-level chemistry, biology and psychology. At AS level I achieved an A grade for psychology and a C grade for biology, however I didn't sit the AS chemistry exam (I will be sitting both AS and A2 chemistry in 2017).

    I don't know my predicted grades for A2.

    I might not get to do the 5 year medicine degree. So I am interested in doing a 6 year medicine degree with a foundation year.

    Some universities that do a medicine degree with a foundation year might not consider my application as I already study chemistry. They would consider those who study non-science subjects.

    Does anyone know any universities that I should apply to (taking into consideration the circumstances that I am in)?

    University of Nottingham A108
    University of Southampton BM6 and Uni of East anglia

    Bristol if your sixth form/college is on their contextual offers list. KCL offers an Extended Medical Degree too.
