    Get feedback and find out why/ where your weakness was.

    Decide if you have alternatives or yu will work on your application and try the following year.

    Some private unis are still accepting applications for medicine. I've heard of people applying to Irish medical schools after 4 rejections, I've also heard ot people getting offers from Barts Malta after the release of A-level results in August.

    Alternatively you could look into medical school in Australia, their application cycle for 2018/19 entry hasn't started yet.

    Two of my unis said they only accept international students with achieved a levels so I might have to take gap year. Are you an international student?

    irish med school applications are closed now, but they are a great alternative when you have great stats, since they just use a points system and no personal statement.

    But you have to get a high score on the HPAT exam which is hard

    i found that with 4 a levels, one of which being in maths (extra points), all thats required is 150ish to meet their requirements, which is the average.
    the op seems to be very smart, so it may be less of a problem to score highly for them

    Most home medics wouldn't get a single offer as an international.


    It's very difficult - your UKCAT needs to ideally be 700+ and your BMAT should be high 6s in each section with a 4 in section 3
