I want to do medicine at uni and I'm wondering if there is another way to make things happen if the grades aren't achievable this year. Im waiting on my exam results for my national 5's in Scotland, and the marks i get for these, determine whether i do my highers. I have chosen Maths, English, Chemistry, Biology and photography as my choices for higher but i want to drop photography due to the low number of UCAS points that the subject gives. My main question is, what happens if i don't get good enough grades to do my highers? I want to do this more than anything! I've been through a lot in the last few years and my grades are slowly but surely moving away from failing.
Can anyone give me reassurance and suggestions?
What can I do if I don't get the marks? Watch

Take a graduate entry into medicine by taking up a science course in uni. Does you no harm as long as you put in the work from there on.

If you haven't achieved the required grades this year your options are very limited I'm afraid:-
1 Graduate medicine, but it is extremely competitive. You will need a minimum 2.1 in a suitable degree.
2 If you meet any resit criteria - and tbh it is unlikley - you could resit and apply with achieved grades.
3 Study abroad - not for everyone.
4 An access course IF you qualify - again unlikely I'm afraid.
