    Hi guys, i recently finished my Alevels and got my results back and I do biology, chemistry and english lang, and i got CCD, and i was obviously very upset with the results as i had planned on doing medicine, however i did not apply to ucas yet as i was taking a gap year for work experience, now my only option to do medicine is through biomed then medicine post grad, and my first decision was to resit my a2 year, but my headteacher said that if i do a year of work experience then i might have a chance of getting accepted for biomed at some unis, so now i am stuck between the 2 options. Either resit the year or do work experience for a year at the hospital where i work part time. PS i work at a hospital as a porter and they are willing to take me on full time until my school starts. So what are your thoughts on what i should do? Do you know any univeristies with an average entry requirement for biomed that might be ideal for me???? Thank you

    I think your better option would be to resit the year to improve your grades enabling you to do a degree in your favourite science at a university you really want to go to. Once you've done that degree you can do a shortened medicine degree. My GP live nextdoor to me and at one stage I wanted to do medicine so asked him how he got to where he is. After his A-levels, which were less than spectacular even after resitting a year, he did a degree in Biochemistry. He graduated with a first and then did a 4 year medicine degree.
