    You could be a candidate for the Foundation year with those predictions ( you need B in Bio and chem) You could also exceed your predictions, some students do. But the interviewing panel decides which year applicants are placed in. At least if you apply you have a chance provided that you have the GCSE maths and English grades required. Your personal statement will give you more advantage if its well written and captures solid and steady voluntary/paid work that reflects your ambitions. I am assuming you want to do a healthcare related degree. If so sustained voluntary or some practical exposure in a setting which involves caring for people especially, vulnerable people would help significantly. (CRB check would be needed) Then if called for interview your performance at the interview will determine if you are chosen ad where they put you. It may also depend on the applications they get when you apply. The course has become very popular and competitive. But an application gives you a chance especially if you put all he other things in place to make your application stand out. Good luck whatever you decide.

    Not at all, ring them and explain why. It doesn't affect your application.

    I don't think I have good enough reason to change it as on the letter it says they only reschedule interviews under exceptional circumstances and I have to email for confirming attendance so should I email them regarding changing the interview slot??

    Not entirely true. I have non science BTEC at DDM, there's a girl on my course with an E in chemistry and there's also a girl with AAA science a levels. It varies a huge amount, I know a few years ago they accepted a mature with just GCSEs

    Thanks for the info. Good to know its pretty much open to anybody who applies. This will clear up a lot of doubts for a lot of applicants and prospective applicants.

    Normally Dec-May . I had mine in April and I applied in January, they take quite a while to reply to you and I think mine was notified by post, not UCAS

    What is the interview like? What format is it in? How long is it?

    The interview usually consists of two interviewers. In my interview only one of them asked questions where the other just sat there and took notes; he seemed completely zoned out to be honest. It was slightly off-putting as he didn't seem engaged into what I was saying or responded to anything I said. So take note of that and don't be put off by this kind of behaviour - just make sure you occasionally address the other interviewer. I think its just an interviewing technique. It was formal interview but after a while it did seem like a chat. They look at your PS and ask questions from there so make sure you know what you have written and be willing to explain this. Of course your PS will probably been tailored towards Medicine and therefore expect standard medicine interview questions.

    Hope this has helped - if you want any more advice on the interview just drop a PM and I'll help as much as I can! Good luck, prepare like you would for standard medical interview and that should exceed what is expected from you It is much easier and casual than standard medical interviews.
