Like the title says I'll be applying to med at the end of year 13. This is because I have very little work experience and it's too late to even try this year.
My current graces are as follows:
GCSE: 1A*, 4A, 4B, 1C, 1E
AS: Maths A, Bio A, Chem A, Physics A
I'm taking A2 bio, chem and maths this year and my predicted grades are probably around A*A*A/A*AA; My teachers haven't told me yet.
I was wondering if applying a year late puts me at a disadvantage and whether you guys think that I'd make a decent candidate.
If it doesn't put me at an advantage would there be any point in me applying to non-medical courses this year? It's very likely that I'll end up rejecting any offers I do receive, but my tutor said that it'd be helpful to just give me an insight to the whole application process, etc. and that I may even end up changing my mind.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Medicine applications are not like any other course applications, excepting perhaps Dentistry and Veterinary Medicine. So if you're not going to apply for medicine this year then don't bother. I do agree it would be good to get to know the system.
In regard to your main question, no it doesn't.
