    Are there any alternate routes in to medicine for 2018? Apart from graduate and foundation medicine. What would you recommend to someone who didn't quite get the grades for undergraduate medicine? Is it worth doing diagnostic radiography then doing graduate medicine? I really want to do medicine but I am unsure which route to take.
    Thanks

    No, you only have the routes that you've stated. I wouldn't do diagnostic radiography unless that's something you're generally interested in potentially doing. A foundation programme will be far less expensive than the graduate route, but at the end of the day it's what you can get into and what you want to do.

    Yeah I just missed out by 2 marks to be able to do foundation medicine. I did want to do foundation but my exams didn't go too well due timing but had really prepared hard so felt a bit let down. Currently just doing volunteering. I think I will have to graduate route.

    There are a couple of transfer schemes floating around, but just bear in mind that if you don't transfer you are likely stuck on that course until you graduate.
