    Errm I don't think any UK medical schools accept BTECs I'm afraid. You'd either have to do A levels (or equivalent) or do another degree first and then apply after you graduate

    A100 medicine courses require 3 A2 level qualifications to include chemistry (and usually biology) at grades AAA-A*AA, and competition is high so many achieve. GCSE requirements also include a B in maths and english language for the majority of medical school and most also require Bs in science. Often these "minimum" requirements are not going to get you an interview though and due to high competition some schools have required as high as 8A*s at GCSE, but be aware requirements vary from school to school.

    A BTEC (in what may i ask?) is not going to be accepted, you would either have to complete A2 levels or apply with a first or 2:1 after completing and undergraduate degree.

    Hope this helps.

    Is this for the 5 year course or for the foundation year, im pretty sure a lot of universities accept the BTEC course for the 6 year (with foundation year) programme.

    They won't accept it unless as you said just now it is the correct subject for that specific university (Bristol), you can take the appropiate A-levels and do your best but you'll be at a big disadvantage regardless of how fantastic you are because they do not like accepting retakes/people deciding on medicine late.

    The other option is to stick with what you have and apply to do Biology or something similar and then once you have completed it apply for medicine straight after.
