    Apply to unis that don't look at GCSE's so much but look at UKCAT. If you nail your UKCAT and get 700+ for example it's likely that you'll recieve interviews from everywhere. Manchester is a good one to consider as they require 5a's/A*s and a UKCAT of 670+ and that guarantees you an interview. Just apply strategically and you'll be fine.

    I don't mean to be rude but how lazy do you have to be to do this? You're not applying abroad, you're applying in the UK and it's very easy to figure out what you need to do by just a quick Google search. You don't need to pay anyone to do this. This is probably going to be one of the easiest stages on the path to becoming a doctor.

    Also, I assume you're talking about a UK med school application. Which 'agency' were you with then?
    well I don't think it's OK to judge people being lazy, some people don't have time and I was out of the UK with my sick grandfather during that time. I was taking care of my grandad so I used an agency and they did everything for me and I got to spend more time with my grandad during his last days!! and I don't regret using this agency because they really were nice people and very friendly, they still talk to me every while to see if everything is ok. I applied through Medlink Students.

    You could also look at Plymouth, Liverpool and perhaps Brighton and Sussex?

    That's an unfortunate situation you were in but I still don't think the average person won't have the time to do it. It takes maybe an evening to sit down and look at all the med schools, entry requirements etc, browse the web for the information that's already out there, and everything else then comes with time. But if it worked out for you, good for you.

    From what I've heard it's quite tough to get accepted without an agency though

    That's not true. The majority of successful med candidates don't use an agency. in fact many of them don't even know such agencies exist. They can't do for you any more than what you can find online.
