I'm on a gap year right now trying to decide what to do and where to apply.
My stats are:
GCSEs: 11A* 2A
A Levels: AAB (B due to mitigating circumstance)
UKCAT: 730 average, Band 1
I will definitely be re-sitting the B grade this year and hopefully getting it to an A*.
Would you advise that I resit an A grade subject in the hopes of getting an A*? One of the subjects was REALLY close to an a* I don't know- is it worth it? Most schools want AAA so I've technically already achieved the requirements, but would a predicted A* make me look more competitive, or is it pointless?
Where would you recommend that I apply? Not many schools take retakes
So far I'm thinking Plymouth, Exeter and King's Extended year... what are people's thoughts? What could be my last choice?
I don't want to sit the BMAT
Advice on which med schools to apply to? Watch

You are limited to schools take retakes and the UKCAT.
Re: the B, if you think you can do better retake but if it limits you too much school-wise and you have mitigating circumstances contact the uni and see what they think.
Re: the A* it is a chance. What do your teachers think?
