    Don't give up.
    I got ABBB in my AS results as well as flopping both my Ukcat(score 615) and BMAT( think my score was( 2.7 3.1 and 3A)
    I applied to Durham, imperial, UEA, and BSMS.
    Got interviews from both Durham and BSMS for medicine in which I recieved offers from both universities.
    I worked my socks off and at A2 I got A*A*AA. In my results and will be going Durham so never give up at all!

    Don't retake the year because there are very few med schools that accept A-Levrls taken over 3 years. Just work harder next year and retake some modules, get yourself predicted AAA and you're sorted in terms of grades.
