AS levels will lead to predictions. As long as you're predicted AAA in bio chem and something else they wouldn't care about your AS levels.

How will they know about your a-level results when you apply?

Yes. You can apply for 2019 entry with achieved A levels.

if you are predicted entry requirement grades for the uni of choice and have a strong personal statement, you might. Otherwise you'll need to go via a gap year route (or clearing - i dont know if clearing works for medicine though). having achieved your good A'levels spend the gap year doing things like volunteering in hospitals.

Ignore the ones saying you won't find medicine in clearing - there were plenty last year. Obviously it's not like say criminology for example but there will be places somewhere.

There were 2 universities-- St George's and Plymouth. Hardly plenty.

If you aren't predicted AAA, then yes. Unless you get lucky and find a uni in clearing

It was the first year they had ever gone through clearing. Expect the number to increase in years to come

You can't apply to medicine through adjustment

The standard way is applying in Year 13. If you're lucky clearing or take a gap year.

Couple of options here

1) Apply in year 13 with strong A-Level predictions
2) Take gap year and apply with strong A-Level results
3) Study a different degree and go into a graduate medicine course
4) Study something else / Don't go to university

If you're dead set on medicine, then obviously option 4 won't be a great option. However, if you're not passionate about medicine or aren't going to get the grades then it could be the best option.

You can do option 1 and then option 2/3 if you want to. You can apply in year 13 and after a gap year (if you're rejected in year 13).
