If you get the AS your predicting then you have a chance, yes. Also there are other factors i.e. the UKCAT and BMAT - do well in these and apply to the right unis and your chances look very favourable. For example if apply to BSMS and then smash the BMAT they will invite you to interview regardless of your GCSE profile. Its about applying smart and reading the Universities admissions processes and eliminating ones that use GCSEs heavily.

If you plan to get at least six months' work experience, have you already started? Or have you at least had some places return interest and maybe even request a DBS check if necessary? If none of the above, you need to get going if you want to make sure you organise that kind of long-term voluntary work. Not that six months is necessarily a must, but if you want to do it, it may take longer than you realise to set up.
