Getting into Medicine is competitive because a lot of people who are going into it are getting at least 10 A* in their GCSEs. My advice would be to pick the scientific subjects you want to study at AS-level and ask your college to enter you for a resit. If that's not possible then pay for it yourself. It may be a bit expensive but if you're going to apply for Medicine at top universities, then your C grades won't do you much justice, even if you do ace your A-levels.

You got 5 A's overall and also A's in the only subjects that really matter in the long run (Maths and English).

first of all i'd reccomend you sit down and stop thinking negatively, your not going anywhere so whats the point in rushing and mucking things up?
i'd start with an actual thought as to what you want to do, it sounds like you either:
1. really want to do medicine, and kind of assumed you'd get there, but had a few bumps along the way.
2. just like the idea of medicine, they way it would sound when you say you were a med student/doctor, and maybe you'd get to cut up a few people here or there.
3. don't actually know what you want to do so you just listed careers that you'd heard of hence the 'i want to be a operator (surgeon), psychiatrist, vet, engineer, journalist etc etc.
after you've done that, research different universities that offer your chosen course (be realistic here - it may seem harsh but your not really giving yourself a good chance of success if you only apply to places like oxbridge, imperial, ucl etc) and then look at their entry requirements, what kind of subjects they want and at what grades.
after that, you should phone up local colleges/go on their websites as to what GCSEs they want for the courses you need, and then find out if they offer GCSE resits, or the nearist private examination centre.
PM me if you want any help i may only be the same age as you, but i like to think i can be a good ear for somebody going through a bad patch.
