I am a year 13 student and I study A-level chemistry, biology and psychology at sixth form. My sixth form isn't that good and I live in a deprived area.
I was considering applying a medicine course with a foundation year.
My problem is that I tried to register to do the UKCAT test before applying to universities that do the 6 year course, such as KCL and Southampton.
However the deadline to register UKCAT was 21st September (a few days ago). I won't be able to do the UKCAT test until next year (2017).
Nonetheless, I have applied to do a medicine course with a foundation year at Lancaster - so I can sit BMATs.
I need some guidance on what I should do. Should I apply medicine with a foundation year at Lancaster and my other options I choose something like biomedical science?
Or take a gap year and gain voluntary experience and then register the UKCAT test and apply medicine with a foundation year in other universities such as KCL, Southampton and Bristol?
