    I'm just confused about whether it really is worth applying with the B grade. What did you get a B in if you don't mind me asking?

    I agree that we were the first to take the linear exams but that just makes it even worse because we have to resit EVERY SINGLE PAPER...

    Yess do the BMAT cuz it'll let you apply to BSMS / Lancaster. Also 645 isn't bad tbh but you can really revise for the BMAT init. What are you putting as your 5th option?

    I would definitely say going for the resit is a great option if anyone has missed their offer narrowly the first time round for medicine. I missed my offer last year(got A*AB), resat 2 A2 units to get my grade up and managed to somehow get in so it's definitely possible! I'm also fairly sure that most people who resat managed to get in the second time round, it's just about making sure you nail the ukcat and bmat.

    I'm happy to answer any questions ppl may have.

    Medicine abroad in which country? Bulgaria? I'm thinking of mainly BMAT universities (BSMS, Lancaster) if my UKCAT messes up (mines on 3/09) and I'm looking at Plymouth and Liverpool but both require a decent UKCAT, idk about HYMS and UEA because I don't think my GCSEs are competitive enough tbh.
