I wanted to apply to medicine for the 2020 entry, I have done my ucat and my score is below 650 and my band is very low. I understand that I can't apply but my school will still make me apply to university for biomedical sciences, I dont mind doing it as I can get into grad medicine however I was wondering if I did my UCAT before results day next year and got a good UCAT and exam results whether on results day I can decline the potential biomed offers and take a gap year to apply for medicine. Am I allowed to withdraw my offers on results day and if so when I am 19 am I entitled to student finance

You can decline your offers, yes.

Am I allowed to withdraw my offers on results day and if so when I am 19 am I entitled to student finance
Yes, and yes you will be entitled to student finance. In effect you would have just taken a gap year.

What was your band and your GCSEs as some med schools may still consider you.

Who cares about your school on results day? It's not as if you're going back.

Do what you want and apply to wherever and for whatever; it's your life / future and not the school's.

I was thinking about taking a gap year but I know I will be applying for university for 2020 for biomed, but if I do well in the UCAT and the grades I was hoping to decline the offer and apply for medicine

on results day if it goes to plan, how do I decline the offer and does this mean I can reapply again also does this look bad on the university I rejected

You'll need to click on "Decline my place".

This is the process for this year, and I assume will be similar for next year too: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6018164

Oh yeah thats 100% fine, UCAS now gives you an option to release yourself from your firm on results day.

You are free to make a new UCAS application next year.You really need to stop worrying about your school.You are free to do whatever you like.I fail to see why you have to apply to biomed in the first place as you have no interest in doing it.

I know there are a few biomed and similar programmes which fast track the top (x) students onto their medicine course after the first year. Have a look into these as no UCAT required just a lot of hard work in your first year at uni lol! I only know of Newcastle Biomedicine specifically but there are others that my teachers have talked about to me

If you want to do medicine and get the required A levels redo UKAT and re apply to medicine next year. Very competitive to go bio med route.

Newcastle still require those wanting to transfer to do the UCAT. You cannot get out of the admissions tests!
