I did A-Levels in Religious Studies, Business, and History and I am currently on a gap year and am holding an offer for accounting. However, I really want to do medicine and I came to this realisation at the start of year 13 when I was applying for university but I thought it was impossible to get into medicine without science A Levels. However, I then came across the medicine foundation year for a non-science background at the uni of Manchester which required AAA however I only got BBB so I unfortunately cannot apply for the course.

Then start 3 new A levels, including chem and bio and achieve AAA and you can apply.
Pretty much all med schools require at least AAA unless contextual and all bar 3 courses require science A levels

How would I go about that?
Should I do both biology and chemistry a levels? Or would med schools prefer me to be doing 3 a levels at once?
