I'm in the process of 2019 entry for sheffield, newcastle, birmingham and leicester. I've been rejected post interview from sheffield and newcastle so i'm kinda panicking right now over what the worst case scenario would be. Still waiting on post interview news from birmingham and leicester (I know that birmingham and leicester don't take reapplications so I'm bricking it honestly...).

In the worst case scenario I was considering taking a gap year to massively improve on my application, but the thing is, I'm confident I can get the required A level grades this year. Would I be able to apply after my gap year with grades that I've achieved this year or are they invalid if they arent acquired in the year of application? or is it different between each school? And since I can't reapply to birmingham and leicester would I be able to apply to other schools after the gap year, would this still be considered deferred entry considering I'e applied to other schools before and failed? I'm guessing these won't be taken as "reapplications" since I haven't technically applied to them before?

I reckon none of these are too easy to answer since they're probably different for every school..

It's very simple. Yes, you can apply next year using grades obtained this year.

Thanks for your quick reply!

Just wanted to clarify this is for all schools correct? And also is this correct for applying to new unis other than the ones I've previously applied for. Would they be classed as deferred entry or reapplication or both?

Unless a medical school specifically states you can't apply there 2 years running (which you say is the case with Birmingham and Leicester) then you can apply wherever you like. It wouldn't be deferred entry but would be a reapplication, which happens to hundreds of students every year.
