    Yes definitely go for medicine, but apply strategically. When you say high ukcat I assume 700+ around. Go for schools such as Southampton, Durham, Newcastle, perhaps Kings College. Manchester is also viable. There are many options available. Good luck with your application!

    For all the grades you can obtain at a level that is not the only deciding factor when applying for a place in medical school. As a doctor your ability to study and pass exams theoretically is at a level C grade . Competition makes it higher. However even withstanding the top grades you can obtain the deciding factor is why and what you would aspire to do when you are a doctor ! Where is your interests and what have you shown to cement that interest ! For all the high grades at A level nothing bears any indication of future performance other than time perseverance and dedication
