    My results were
    Biology - D
    Chemistry - D
    Sociology - C

    I wanted to study medicine for 2017 entry but don't know whether I should just give up . Also wanted to know if there were any similar courses to medicine. I have the ukcat in September ,so don't know whether I should study for it or just cancel it. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Hi there,
    I am sorry to hear you didn't get the results you wanted.
    It's unlikely that you would be successful with an application to a 6 year undergraduate course.
    You can either continue to A2 and try a post A-level application; apply to a Medicine with foundation year course or apply to an alternative course that is less competitive as you suggest.

    Cancel it I am sorry but there is no chance, I am being brutally honest so you can plan something else
