You'll need to research yourself, a good starting point is here: https://www.medschools.ac.uk/media/2...al-schools.pdf (entry requirement for all UK med schools).

If that doesn't work, you may have to consider taking A-Levels and reapplying; alternatively you may need to do a degree then going for graduate entry medicine (harder than standard undergrad medicine).

If you want to be a doctor you have to go to med school, you can’t go into medicine with biomedical science degree alone. But most med schools do integrated degrees so you can do medicine and biomed in 6 years 💖

You can intercalate biomedical sciences as a medical student, here is more information

One can be a PhD doctor after doing Biomedical sciences (and studying further!) but not a medical doctor, you are right.

this is an extremely competitive route, but try to apply for gateway to medicine. only s few universities in the country accept it though, and they do accept BTEC. you also need to do a UCAT exam when applying.

make sure you get tons of work experience. a good starting point would be working as a HCA

But remember Medicine with a Foundation Year (or Gateway Year) have some criteria - they are not open for all applicants. They do have lower grade offers.

OP need to do more research before going for them!
