    To do a degree in biology, as far as I know, you'd need at least a C in English language at GCSE level, something which you don't seem to have.

    It depends what you mean by Foetal Medicine. If you mean cell line style research a degree in most biological discplines followed by a doctorate will surfice. If you mean babies and theatres and all that jazz, then to get anywhere you may need a MBBS or similar. Espeically if you eventually want to head your own team. Clincial research grants tend to go to clinicians not medical researchers.
