I really want to work researching genetic diseases, immunology and cures but I'm not entirely sure what to study at uni.

I spoke to a family friend who works in Biochemical engineering and she told me I should go study medicine at uni because of the opportunities it gives you. A lot of my family are also pushing me to study medicine. But now with covid and exams being cancelled I'm really not sure I could get in with my marks (I got a low C in my chemistry prelim and I'm not confident that my final grade will end up being higher than a B).

Now I'm considering what other courses I could study if I can't go for medicine. I know my local uni does a life sciences course which includes both genetics and immunology but I don't know if it would be better to aim for something different.
