    It will make it very difficult. If I am not mistaken Peninsula and Keele accept retake students and one more uni which I don't remember the name of.

    You could also apply foreign to somewhere like Czech Republic or Romania as their degrees are cheaper and can be used in England.

    Resitting will rule of the majority of universities. Medicine doesn't like retakes. Looks like it's pharmacy or some other crappy degree like biomedical science that'll you'll have to choose from.
