    Thats quite confusing.

    Medicine is very competitive. You need high GCSE in some cases and High A levels.

    GCSEs are normally required to be able to sit the A level. The two most commonly required ones are Chemistry , then Biology. You need to be doing those at GCSE.

    They do not like resits at A level so best get it right on first sitting.

    If you are clever then its straightforward to teach yourself a GCSE and sit as a private candidate or you could do it via distance learning.

    You may find it very difficult to do A levels because of your age. You might have to do those via distance learning as well. It is not hoing to be easy for you.
