I have a few quick questions about medicine. The thing is,I really want to study medicine and I can't see myself doing anything else. I am aware of all the routes into medicine and I have considered the one with a foundation year. Now , these are my GCSE grades:
English Language: B
English Literature: A
Religious studies : A
BTEC Diploma in sport: Distinction* (Worth 4A*)
BTEC Diploma in Public services: Distinction*(worth 4A*)
National First Certificate in ICT: Distinction (Worth 2A+A*)
Adult Literacy and Numeracy Level 2 : Pass
My questions are :
1) If I apply to the 5 year course , providing I get the right A levels (AAA) Will I have a decent chance of getting in?
2) If I apply to the foundation course , providing I get the right A levels (CCC) Will I have a decent chance of getting in?
3)My school did not offer GCSEs when I chose my options in year 9 , therefore I had to stick with BTECs. Will this put me at a disadvantage and if so , will universities consider this and be somewhat sympathetic , since I didn't have a choice....
Opinions/Advice/ Anything, would be appreciated watch

I have no idea about the grades but I was considering doing medicine after this degree so did a lot of research on it. Maybe if you can get a work experience placement or you do some voluntary work it could help? Voluntary work could be something like; reading to the blind, offering help in activities or feeding in a nursing home or maybe even if you do a sport offer to help a club for free? Try contacting your local hospitals to find out if they have any placements. I know that in Taunton they have a scheme for college students. GOod luck
