    It depends on the universities you want to apply to. You should decide on the basis of how their admissions work and their course structure and style.

    You need to pay special attention to GCSE requirements, especially if you did badly in English. English skills are considered important and most med schools will require at least a C. Your GCSEs overall are well below average and you may find your options are very limited because of it unfortunately. Any special circumstances or a poor performing school may slightly increase your currently slim chances.

    There are more ways into a "career in medicine" than being a doctor. That might be worth researching at this stage.

    For future reference, proper use of spelling and grammar will make people take you more seriously, and will result in more people willing to put more effort into replying to you.
