    You could do a gap year and retake a few modules if you didnt get in because of your grades, and then reapply ( but some only a few universities accept retakes im not sure which ones)

    Or alternatively you can study medicine abroad, in Prague or somewhere else in Europe

    Get a job, learn a foreign language, prepare another application for different medical schools. Get more work experience. If you fail again consider going to Europe. https://www.themedicportal.com/appli...dicine-abroad/

    Get feedback on your application!

    Work out what your weakness was: aptitude tests (UKCAT, BMAT), personal statement, work experience, grades and make them better! Did you get rejected pre or post interview? If it's pre then change your application, if it's post then improve your interview skills. In the meantime, gain more experience, volunteer or work as a Healthcare Assistant or something, and keep going! Good luck!

    Really depends if it’s pre-interview or post-interview. Basically, try to finish the year strong, and improve yourself for next year - then reapply

    Work hard to get the grades now
    Be ready as soon as UCAS Clearing opens to phone Medical Schools.
    If unsuccessful, reapply next year having done more work experience and work on improving your personal statement and getting more interview practice.

    Best of luck 🤞
