if i wanted to study medicine in 2021 but have mediocre gcse grades or alevels.
im hoping to do an access course for medicine along with November Gcse resits to compensate for my bad grades.
the thing is that the deadline to apply for Medicine is in October, like two week before i even resit my gcses.
so ill be submitting my grades and whatnot and theyll see the bad gcses instead of the retook gcse grades.
what should i do in this situation? I have read on tsr that access courses are accepted and some unis may take you. But is it worth doing an access to medicine course?

As far as I know, Lambeth and City and Islington are the only ones in London that are (somewhat) widely accepted by med schools. Your med school choices will be a lot more limited than if you did A-Levels but that will be the case for any Access to Medicine course.

Theyre all booked up already- did your uni allow distant learning?

I don't think they did when I applied, but med schools change their entry criteria all the time so maybe there are some now that accept that, I'm not sure I'm afraid.
