    So I got A* in general studies, A* in politics, A in biology(2 ums from an a star) but unfortunately B in chemistry. Can i still apply to medicine with a b in chemistry or should i resit? However, even if i do resit i might not get the grades and if i do then i will only be able to select few unis where competition is hard. I am currently thinking of fast track medicine after pharmacy but the thought of doing something i dont like for 3 years i making me rethink this. So should i take a gap year and apply or stick with fast track medicine?

    Its ur choice at the end of the day, but if I was ur place what I would do is re-sit the chemistry units that I need and then apply only to unis that accept resits, make sure ukcat ps everything else is perfect then u should have decent chance. There is little to no point to apply with a B in chem as it is a requirement to every uni.

    A*, A, B sounds good. My advice would be to contact unis ASAP and ask them what they can do, although it already may be a bit late right now.
    In the case that you don't make it, I think that taking a Gap year may be the best option but check the policies about resits, bc I think that not many favour A-level Retakes.
    Best of luck in getting in though xxx

    You should have been calling Unis on the 18th as I know of people with AAB that got medicine places by calling up.

    If you really want to do medicine then don't jump to graduate entry. Its longer, more expensive and even more competitive than undergrad. Resit the chemistry, aim for an A* then reapply. Some uni's do accept resit applicants and you will hopefully have good achieved grades. Btw general studies is pretty irrelevant when it comes to medicine applicatons
