This gives info on requirements for different unis. It's no substitute for doing your own research, however...

I think you will struggle with only one science A level, as most require Chemistry and at least one more of Bio, Physics, or Maths.

Foundation courses then are an option, but bear in mind that most of them have other requirements that you have to fulfil to be eligible, eg your socioeconomic position, family history of higher education etc etc.

Best to check with individual universities, all of this info is very readily available if you google a university's entry requirements...

There are foundation year medicine courses for those students who do not offer 2 sciences but they are very competitive. I think Manchester and Sheffield offer these for AAA.

Also, there are the foundation courses to widen access ^ as mentioned above and Universities which offer these( with different eligibility criteria to be fulfilled). Unis that offer these are UEA, KCL, Southampton and Nottingham.

You apply through UCAS using the specific code for the course and uni. So for example- Southampton, the code is BM6
