    Thank you all so much for the response! Honestly has helped me a lot! I the thing with the foundation course is that it will take me longer than the 2 years to compete my a levels and then still not get into the course. So then at the end i would of wasted another year. I'm gonna research into Romania universities and see if I can get into the medical course. Otherwise I'm just gonna do biomedicine at uni and then do a postgraduate course to medicine.

    If you have your heart set on Medicine you should apply to Romanian med shool. One of my best friends has gone there after undergrad and I know another person who has one to Romania after A-Levels.

    Really? Because I just contacted them today and got a reply that my grades are unfortunately not enough to get into the medical school. Do you know by any chance what your friend got for A levels? Thank you 😊

    I don't know what she got but I would hazard a guess at BBC or something similar. You can either retake your A-Levels and apply abroad or do your degree and apply for graduate entry and abroad. I have another friend studying medicine in the Czech-Replubic after doing bsc neuroscience.

    Oh okay that seems reasonable! If nothing works out I'm just going to finish my degree and apply abroad. Thank you!

    Yes you are right because I contacted them but because of the grades I got (1 C & 3 D) they said the grades weren't enough. Thank you though!

    I want to transfer into medicine for the second year
    No UK University will let you transfer into the 2nd year of a Medicine degree.

    Hey, since going to study Medicine at Europe has become more and more popular, it is becoming much tougher getting a place to study Medicine in European Universities. e.g. Latvia. However, most Universities take in students in September as well as February. You could try resisting the A-levels in the winter and apply for a place this February? Something worth looking into I guess.

    I got AAB in A level, but unfortunately I didn't get a place in a UK university for Medicine. So I was at a crossroad of either doing biomedical science and then applying to Medicine OR going to Latvia to study medicine. I chose Latvia and it was really one of the best decisions I have made.

    Thank you so much! But the issue is that there's no more exams in January. All the exams are done in the summer for a levels. So unfortunately I can't do the exams in the winter which is a pain in the back side. I would contact the university and see what options I have. Thank you 😄

    Hey, yes do contact them. Even if you can only resit next summer, Europe is worth looking it to. Ofcourse, you can do biomedical science, but again it is extremely competitive to get Medicine after that. If unfortunately you don't get a place, then you have wasted 3 years studying a course you didn't really want to do. Not to mention the money wasted.

    Hi, I was wondering if someone could give me some advice. I got rejected from Medicine in August and I applied again to apply for September 2016. I was planning to retake some of the exams to make up for lost grades. I really don't want to get my hopes up again and not get in. I know Pleven do Feb intake from researching. Does anyone know if it is too late to apply?
