    If I don't match the criteria for foundation medicine then is it pointless applying ? Are there any universities that do the 6 year foundation medicine course but don't require any specific criteria to be matched or any universities that have no criteria at all ?

    I'm like you, i didn't do well at all this year so i looked deeper at foundation courses. unfortunately, if you're not in a deprived area, go to a school that has a low average a level result, looking after a parent/in care then you can't apply. all the foundation medicine courses are widening access courses for those who don't have adequate support and facilities to get the AAA/A*AA grades that you need for regular 5/6 year medicine :/
