If it's only your AS results, it's far from over.

Oh, in that case just do a degree, retry again in three years as a graduate if you really want it. You could also resit your A-levels and email each uni RE: their policy on resit candidates.

Check the advice on this page here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...medical_school

Generally, the route would be to do another degree and then apply to graduate entry medicine but this is very competitive.

Any life sciences degree - e.g. biomedical science.

Quite a large variety. It's usually best to stick with some kind of science, preferably chemistry/biology related. Biochemistry, chemistry, biology, chemical engineering, psychology...

I should think so - the required grades will vary by uni. You could look into clearing now, or apply over the next UCAS cycle.

More than likely. It depends on the uni.

Depends on the uni. If they stipulate a certain degree set, pick one from it. If they don't, then go for something you're most likely to get a 2.1 or above in

Southmapton has a lot of English graduates as they like reading a lot haha

Grad entry is 4 years but if you apply to undergrad then yes. You'll need to do 5/6 years.
There are plenty of jobs in healthcare if you have a search about
