So I dream to do medicine whether that be a surgeon, GP, doctor, nurse and I've been told that my personality suits the interaction I could have with patients.

I have currently completed my first year in college and I don't think I will pass this year, my GCSE grades was only 1A, mostly Bs and a few less than that but I have a lot of experience. I know of many students who have amazing grades, sufficient amount of experience and don't get into med school. I have two plans:
Plan 1: If I get grades at A-C then I will carry onto my second year at college and try my best to get all A*s then take a foundation year at university
Plan 2: Re-take my first year at college and get amazing grades that majority of students can do in two years and try to get a lot more experience to get into med school straight after

What do you think of my plans and am I being realistic of thinking I can still do medicine?

Also will I be able to get into a university?

Medicine is a really hard course to get onto and the majority who apply will have at least AABB, and many will have higher than that. If you arent going to get those sort of grades in AS i dont think there is much of a chance of an offer, even with all the experience. If you retake exams and get amazing AS grades then there is no reason why you cant get into uni. See what grades you get this year and then maybe talk to your chemistry teacher at college and see what they think.

I live in London so there's a lot of competition and it may be difficult to get into uni by taking three years to get those amazing grades when others can do it in two.

My chemistry teacher is also not so easy to talk to... She tried to kick me out of my exam two weeks before the exam and also didn't look for funding for me to go on a compulsory biology trip that was £185, so I didn't go. Not really sure what to do about my college either. It just opened up and I'm in their 'test year'. Doesn't seem like I took a good risk so I might just leave the college.
