hi , i am thinking of applying to medicine this year however my situation is i resat year 12, i didn't sit any external exams only mocks provided by the 6th form (did rubbish in one subject) at the end of my first year, so i haven't received any As results. just predicted grades, i didn't bother applying as i knew i wouldn't get in.
i moved college and changed the subject i struggled with, would i still have a chance getting into to medicine despite resitting year 12 but not sitting any external exams
first year of yr12: only mocks
second year of yr12: did alot better in mocks
currently in year 13.

thanks in advance.

You will need to apply to med schools which accept retakes (= completing A-Levels in more than 2 years). https://www.medschools.ac.uk/media/2...al-schools.pdf

Bear in mind that because your options are (much) limited, there may well be a chance that you won't get in (first time). You may also need to consider alternative routes of entry, including graduate entry medicine.
