I'm looking for a bit of advice. I'm Irish and I have just moved to the UK. I have an undergraduate degree in Chemistry but unfortunately got a 2:2... Although I received this from a prestigious university in Ireland where other universities in Ireland will consider this a 2:1.. but this isn't the case in the UK. I really want to do medicine but my past education just doesn't cut it.
So I want to know what my next move should be? I have considered doing A-Levels as I have looked at the course content and past exams and they seem like they'll be pretty easy with my educational background and I'm confident I could do very well. But is this something that will be accepted by the universities in the UK?
I would also be interested in doing graduate entry medicine but I don't know if this is possible anywhere with my 2:2!
I just need some advice about what to do now? I'm willing to do any course/get any qualification to gain entry into medicine.

Yes, it's possible. See here: https://www.medschools.ac.uk/media/2...al-schools.pdf
As you have a degree, you're classed as a graduate...it would be dishonest to exclude that from an application and substitute in recent A-level grades as if you hadn't taken a degree. Focus that effort into something like the GAMSAT!
Nottingham may be your best bet if you do well enough , though you could also do a masters and be eligible to apply for the one true medical school
