    I've completed my a levels and currently waiting for results day but I've now decided that humanities was not for me...

    I did triple science and got AAB (bio, chem, phy) for gcses and really regret not choosing sciences. ..

    I've recently found out that certain unis do med with foundation years and especially UEA do a course I reckon I could be accepted in for..

    But sadly ucas apps are closed and I haven't actually appled for that course...

    Can someone please shows me some guidance I really want to do medicine now and I won't be content with anything else:confused:

    Report your own post or ask in AAM and request for your thread to be moved to the Medicine subforum. You will get much better advice there.

    Lots of advice here about applying for Medicine : http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki/Medicine

    Foundation medicine courses are just as competitive as straight Medicine courses - just because you have the grades does not mean you'll be accepted. Other subjects to look at as an alternative - Paramedic Studies, Biochemistry, Physiology, Microbiology, Neuroscience, Medical Sciences, Medical Engineering, or even Nursing, Midwifery, Pharmacy/Pharmacology : http://www.nhscareers.nhs.uk/explore-by-career/

    The OP got AAB in triple science GCSEs. They're looking at a foundation course because they did humanities at A-level.

    You'll have to take a gap year and reapply next year, you'll also need to get work experience etc sorted, just as if you were applying for a normal medicine course.
