    Foundation years are done after A-levels, you usually need A-level qualifications to be able to take a foundation year. Unless you're talking about something else like college btecs?

    all in all if you want to do medicine id reccomend taking Alevels in science and medicine based subjects, this will give you a higher chance if getfing into a good med school

    I honestly thought you could only do Foundation years after completing two years of A level or Btec equivalent. as for the University the only real way is to visit it. its almost useless going to and spending loads of money on a Uni you've never seen in person before because you could simply hate it when you get there
