    I got A*A*AABBBBCCC at GCSE, A* in English language, and English literature, B's in my two science and a C in maths (still heartbroken I was 1 mark off a B but its a C regardless) and now I'm studying Economics, English Literature and Geography at a level, predicted AAB respectively. Anyone know any foundation degree programmes that will take me on with these grades or will I have to do a post graduate degree in medicine? . Anyone with similar grades got onto medicine without having to do the aforementioned degree?

    No not really pressured by my parents, i want to do it. The degree I wanted to do previously is just not as employable, And I was asking because I found the Manchester foundation degree and it specifically asks for no science subjects at a level and if you do have some it wants no more than 1. But you need a B in maths which I dont have so I was just wondering if anyone knows other foundation programmes that meet my grades.
