    Going into year 13 now....
    I initially wanted to apply for medicine and my GCSE's were average-ish at 2A* 5A 2B 1C
    For AS I did BIO, CHEM, MATHS and PHYS got ABCC ( il probably be predicted AAC)
    For the UKCAT I got 630 average and Band 1 SJ
    Relevant work experience
    No point applying for medicine with those predictions so what should I do now ?

    I would take a gap year. Aim for at least AAA this year and apply during your gap year. Tbh I'm afraid I don't think you would get any offers this year with AAC predictions although it wouldn't hurt to apply just so you can get support from your school/college and experience of the UCAS. Also try and get as much work experience in as possible this year.

    Good luck!

    Im not going to lie (sorry if this is harsh) but i couldnt name a medical school off the top of my head which would interview you with low GCSEs and a low UKCAT.

    It is probably better to take a gap year and reapply.
