I currently dont have the predicted grades for med school if I get grades in the real exams then I will take a gap year and apply for med school but if I don't then I will apply for graduate entry but am struggling to choose between studying biomed or pharmacy. Which of these is closest to medicine and what is each one like?

If you don't get the grades, you should still take a gap year to improve your grades and reapply to med school at standard undergrad med level.

Never ever do a random degree (that's anything other than medicine) with the sole aim for graduate entry medicine. It will take longer, cost more and (most importantly) will be much, much more competitive.

If you have embarked on biomed / pharmacy, you'll need to be prepared to be looking for a vocation with a biomed / pharmacy degree for life.
