Hi, so i was wondering if universities will take into account my extenuating circumstances for when applying to medicine at uni, I know this course is extremely competitive hence the query,
so basically in year 9, i fell out with my friends, I then became very ill at the beginning of year 10 where I developed a diagnosed eating disorder, throughout year 10 I struggled greatly, I couldn't concentrate whatsoever, prior to me falling ill i was an A grade student, anyways during the middle of year 10 my ED got worse, and I ended up being referred to an ED service, i missed a lot of school because I had so many appointments with the service, in year 11 things got worse I was in and out of hospital for most of year 11 but nearing exam time, I was admitted into hospital where i stayed there long term, Im much better now and whilst in hospital i sat 3 gcses, of which i achieved C in french, C in science and A* in r.s, I am now sitting the rest of my gcses and am predicted 2A* 3A and 1B , I really want to do medicine will uni's accept me if I excel in my A-levels aswell?

You should email some of the uni's you are interested in and ask if they accept Extenuating circumstances, some might, some might not but only admissions will be able to tell you.
