I have just received my AS results however they are not high enough to apply directly to medicine which means I plan to apply to a relevant undergraduate degree before going on to study medicine. My main interest within medicine is forensics so I'm wondering if anyone has any idea what the best undergraduate course is to apply for. This link https://www.medsci.ox.ac.uk/study/me...medical-course shows a list of most commonly accepted courses so I'm looking for something along these lines but I don't know what would best benefit me. All reply's appreciated!!

Firstly, there is always the improve your results then apply during a gap year option. Graduate entry is a lot more competitive so it's worth considering.
Secondly, that list is for Oxford and does not speak for elsewhere. It's worth doing broader research to see what other unis want. Email them if you have to - its important.
Thirdly, even with the right subject choice you will, most likely, not get into medicine. That is the statistical truth. You need to ensure your alternative is also provided for when making this decision.

Sorry, what are you wanting from us? That link shows you the courses Oxford prefers (it's a couple of years old now). Look into those which sound interesting (probably something to do with human biology in your case) and if you've got more specific questions contact whichever universities you're interested in.
