    Hi guys, I'm currently a 2nd year student at Leicester studying psychology. I've always wanted to do med but I really flopped my a levels, getting an A*BC in psych, Business studies and Bio (originally did Chem but was forced to drop it at AS). I have a lot of work experience in the field including shadowing a GP, working at a care home for almost a year along with some experience in a hospital. Currently, I'm sitting on a 2:1 but was wondering if it is worth applying to medicine due to my bad grades and the lack of chemistry, which many uni's require. Applying for GAMSAT unis is an option that I know of but even so, many of the unis still look at A levels. What to do? I need brutal honesty here.

    You've already arrived at the correct answer - apply to the universities which don't have A level requirements (Warwick, Newcastle etc) and/or the GAMSAT unis. You've got the right ideas, so don't doubt yourself. Good luck!
