So I’m thinking of doing clinical science foundation year for medicine and then transferring to Leeds for medicine, as I don’t think I have the right gcse grades. Would I have to go through the whole ucas application again, or would I just get sent to medicine straight from clinical science. I know a levels are important but let’s face it, I am less likely to even get an offer due to my GCSE grades. What are the opinions on this? And has anyone actually got into medicine at Leeds from clinical science?

You would need to apply through UCAS. A foundation year doesn't guarantee you a place on another course, and you'll need to achieve certain grades in order to be eligible. Leeds may be able to give you some advice about the likelihood of getting onto medicine from the clincial science course.

Thank you, I heard that if you don’t get into med you can go through a foundation year but this time they won’t look at your grades but rather your performance in that year and I i think the Bmat

They will look at everything prior to making a decision about your grades. There is no way to hide poor grades achieved previously - these must be disclosed on your UCAS application. They may pay more attention to your recent study, but all grades will be looked at.

Your teachers should be able to advise in terms of whether they think it would be realistic for you to achieve the entry grades. No, I'm not.

Oh ok, tbh teachers will always discourage you, they don’t know your potential, only you do. You can’t let something in the past effect your whole future. Theres people who have been discouraged and still performed well and there’s people who got encouraged and dident perform well. It is important for an individual to know their potential and then work towards that accordingly. At this moment of time I doubt my teachers will encourage me for medicine but I know that I am capable of it if I work hard.

Of course that's true, but if you are unsure whether you may meet the requirements then it's sensible to at least speak with your teachers to see what they think is realistic. Your teachers aren't your enemy and they do want to see you succeed. From what you've written previously (and this entire thread) you don't seem particularly sure you are capable. All I am suggesting is that you make an informed decision - but you need to do whatever feels right for you ultimately.

Best of luck with your application.

Yes it’s my GCSE grades and my potential predicted grades that put me off but I know personally that I am capable of it, thank you for the advice.
