Oops I think I messed up my title lol :P

I mean to say

"What can a student do if their A level is not 'up to the mark' for medical universities?"

I'm just saying, if for instance the student did not get the required grades to get into a medical school in UK (I'm not talking about top universities like Cambridge or Manchester) but even the average once and now you have run out the two years deadline for finishing the A level does that mean your life is literally doomed?? is there nothing that I can do to get in ANY universities in the UK?

How far are your grades below what's needed? Honestly, if they're nowhere near what unis need, the only option you have - if you really really want to do medicine - is to do a life science undergrad degree of some sort (biological sciences, biomed, pharmacology etc) and then apply for medicine at graduate level

If you've not got AAA at A level and you have no extenuating circumstances, your only choice is probably to apply for graduate entry medicine, which is mega competitive. I don't think many -if any- medical schools will accept you resitting outside of the 2 years.
