    my predictions in maths is A and B's in biology and chemistry. I know for the fact that I will get 2A* and an A , I've been revising since summer holidays. but I want to do medicine and need 3As for my predictions for any university to look at me at least but I don't think that's going to happen therefore shall I apply for a foundation year in biomedical Science with those ABB predictions or shall I just apply during a gap year with the grades I get in year 13. another thing is the UKCAT score is not that great and need higher so gap year or foundation year?

    What would you achieve with a foundation year in biomed sci apart from use up some student finance? Better to take a gap year, get your grades, work on your UKCAT score and go from there.

    career advisor at my school suggested that taking a gap year would mean that my reference for ucas application would be hard to get during the year for some reasons.
