    Okay, if you don't get adequate replies, you should ask this question again because tbh I don't know what I'm talking about however... I don't think merely doing a biomedical science is an entry route into medicine. This would depend on the university and whether they allow cross-transfers like this, so you should conduct some more research on this and hopefully you get an answer on TSR too.

    As for your GCSE's, I can understand this, and a lot of medical schools have students with a lot of A*s don't they. Have you thought about doing International GCSEs?

    Before any of this though, do as many activities and stuff such as DoE, EPQ, World challenge, NCS, idk, student shadowing, work experience in a hospital or care home setting, stuff like that. Also do you know about the UKCAT and BMAT exams?
