Medical degree with minimal GCSE's watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm 18 and I want to study medicine at Uni but don't meet any of the entry requirements currently. I'm at college retaking my GCSE's because I messed around at school cause I was an idiot and failed them. The only thing I left with was a Level 2 Science Btec...Anyway I've heard about a 6 year course where you do a foundation year before you start your 5 year med degree? I've seen Leicester do it for people who live in the East midlands(I Do) and if you have maths and English C or above as well as two sciences. I don't think my Btec applies does it?
    Anyway, I was wondering if it was even possible for someone like me to get on to the course if I pass maths, English and retake Science(If my Btec doesn't apply)?
    I guess I didn't take my school time seriously because I never really knew what I wanted to do in life but after spending the majority of 2016 in hospital before my father passed away I got to see all of the great work that the doctors and nurses do for people and it inspired me I guess.
    Any help would be great, thanks.

    You would need to call/email different uni's and ask them if you would meet their entry requirements under mitigating circumstances, otherwise I'm not sure of any courses that can accept your gcse's
