    Basically I was thinking of doing medicine but it seems unlikely now with these stats:

    GCSEs: 2A*s, 7As, 3Bs
    AS LEVELS: ABD (geog, bio, chem)
    Predicted: ABB/AAB
    UKCAT: QR 640 / AR 570 / VR 520 / Band 1 SJT
    UKCAT average: 577
    I have a ton of volunteering and work experience and extra curricular though, if that helps at all?

    Should I bother applying, don't think many unis would even consider me, would they? If not, what alternative courses are there that I could do to apply as a grad later, bio / biomed possibly??? Which unis are good for biomed also??

    No, you wouldn't meet the requirements of any 5 year course with less than AAA predictions. Focus on getting AAA at a-level and then take a gap year and apply to medicine then.

    Why did you take the UKCAT if you were going to be predicted less than AAA?

    Smash your a-levels and reapply, GEM isn't the best option atm
