    I got my AS results yesterday and not gonna lie, I goofed and got B (Biology), C (Chemistry), C (Physics) and D (Maths).
    I thought it'd be better to book my UKCAT after my results and the only days I can do the exam are the 15th and 16th of September which is more or less a month away.
    But having seen my results, I'm not sure what to do now.
    I could pay £65 for the UKCAT and pray my predicted results are good and work my arse off to try and get into medicine at uni or give the UKCAT a miss for a year, work to ace my A2s then take a gap year and then re-apply or instead take up a course like Biomedical Sciences and try to transfer when I'm at uni.
    I'm a little stuck because if I'm going for medicine for next year, I need to do the UKCAT, complete the personal statement and then apply for universities.
    What do you guys reckon is the right call?

    Personally, I'd avoid the biomedical sciences route (it is extremely competitive - more so than the 'normal' route). I'd just focus on scoring at least AAA next year, taking a gap year and applying next year tbh.*
