    Chemistry is too low. Proportion A* at GCSE's is not very good. Econ is also going to be a stretch when related to medicine. And yes, the death of an immediate family member is counted as extenuating circumstances (I think).

    Yes but you should notify the universities of your extenuating circumstances before applying. They will also expect you to resit chemistry to achieve at least an A. Good luck!
