    Medicine doesn't usually come into clearing because it's a massively oversubscribed course to start with.

    Usually, even if you do get the grades, if you didn't have an offer, you won't get in to do medicine. There will be no spaces left to take you as every course for medicine is always oversubscribed.

    Like people have said above, medicine is massively oversubscribed and isn't found in Clearing - I'm pretty sure every single university offering medicine requires an interview before they hand out an offer, too. If you do well at the end of A2 and want to do med, I think you'll have to take a gap year and reapply

    The only way you'd get in is if you are interviewed, narrowly miss out on an offer and are placed on the waiting list. If a conditional firm applicant then does not get the required grades, and you do, then potentially the uni could offer you a place

    Med schools usually make their own waiting lists for people who applied earlier but were close to an offer after an interview.

    Unlikely but you might as well ask and see what they say.
