    What A levels subjects are you doing? Foundation courses are usually for people who didn't do Chemistry at A level.

    Chemistry biology and mathematics
    I'm pretty sure you'd be ineligible for foundation courses. I'd advise not applying for anything this year, concentrating on getting your A's and then applying for 2018 entry

    Check their eligibility criteria.

    They are very competitive.

    So after receiving a CCE for my AS-levels I gave up on medicine and began pursuing mechanical engineering and wrote my draft of my personal statement for UCAS. I realize I most likely won't get many good offers so I thought of taking a gap year and applying with my actual A levels (which I am confident will be better than this). I also began to do some research on if I still have a chance of getting into medicine and I found that if I go on a foundation year with lower entry requirements (for example Southampton University has a requirement of BCC) and then carry on with the normal 5 year medicine course. Can someone give me an idea of how competitive these spaces are, and my chances of being able to get a space with me taking a gap year and applying with my A level grades?
    Actually you may be eligible for foundation courses at Southampton and Nottingham, even UEA. I say may because this is based on last year and there are also other requirements that have to be met (other than grades).

    I'd say do some research, because I know 100% that these schools had foundation courses for people with science subjects in 2016 entry x
