I'm hoping to become a doctor (not sure what I'm going to specialize in) but I'm wondering if there's a way to go through high school, get the necessary mark in my final exam, and then move to somewhere like the Netherlands to go into Medical School, and then work from there.
I'm just wondering if there are any reasons that I can't do this? Or any difficulties that might arise.

You'll certainly have to do a levels first. Maybe some entry exams.

Your best bet is to contact medical schools in the Netherlands to check that they accept UK qualifications, and what their entry requirements would be. Particularly whether or not they require specific A-levels. Think carefully about any language requirements too - I am assuming that you speak Dutch if you're thinking about the Netherlands, but if you don't then think carefully about what language the course is taught in and if the university has any requirements for you to learn a language and to what degree of proficiency, if it's a language that you don't already speak. (Remembering that if it's an English language course, your patients won't speak English, some overseas universities seem to provide interpreters, others require you to master a language to a certain level before your clinical years begin).
