    I achieved the grades A*A*A in all humanities (hist, socio, rs) in June 2016 in one sitting. I'm taking a gap year to hopefully make a great application for 6 year courses designed for those without science A levels such as the one at Keele. Do you think I have a realistic chance if I really try hard?

    I'm not english but i'll say you what Iwould say to anyone from my country: the idea that you can't do a science degree without coursing science subjects at A-levels is total ********. It's true that it's going to be harder for you at first, but you'll see that all the A-level science is contained within the first one, two terms. But anyways, if you aren't confident that you can make it, just do a one-month prep course (offered by many unis) if you can, or watch videos, read medical journals...

    You have the grades and you have a gap year to get all the relevant experience/voluntary work so you have a very good chance it's up to you now

    I don't think they'd offer this course if they didn't think those without science could do the degree... That's the whole point of the first year...

    well idk what to say because every time someone reply's to you and says "i don't think you can do it" or that you'll probably struggle ou reply saying that you can and that they are wrong. Do you want their opinions or not?? because it doesn't look like you do at all...

    There are lots of foundation year to medicine courses for people, who haven’t done science A levels. You have a good chance as you have already achieved those grades. However, there are other entry requirements such as work experience. Good luck

    I think OP is looking for advice. Saying "I don't think you can do it" with no justification, is not advice.
