    I'm predicted AAB for ucas application which I'm really disappointed with because I really want to do medicine . Currently I'm working at A*AA and I'm still in progress to pull the As to 2A*, I know for the fact that I will get these grades with hard work and studying really hard which I have been working my socks off. for each test I take I get higher and better results than previous one . Even so its too late to make my medicine application now, due to my predicted grades . my school told me to apply for a foundation year or biochemistry whereas my parents told me to go for a gap year and apply with year 13 results, get more work experience and improve my application. I need advice on which better option to take as long as it leads me to medicine

    You could apply for biomed/biochem now and if you get the grades to apply to medicine then do so and apply for 2019 entry, if not but you did well enough to get into uni then do the biochem/biomed degree then transfer onto a graduate medicine programme. This way you're basically doing both options.

    Goodluck!
