    I'm applying for biomedical science but because I know my A-levels wont get above a C, I've applied for universities with low entry requirements. I recently discovered some universities offer my course, but with an extra foundation year which is also something I feel I will need, as I've been doing so bad with my A-levels. I'm applying for greenwich, birkbeck and university of westminster. My confusion is I'm not sure if I could get onto just the biomedical course at birkbeck and westminster, but also the foundation, will I need to apply to both universities twice as in putting westminster/birkbeck for biomedical and also biomedical with a foundation? I don't want to apply for just a foundation because if my grades are too good then I will have missed a chance to do just a biomedical, but if I only put biomedical and my grades aren't good enough, will i not be able to do a foundation
