Well before we start: not everyone can apply to Medicine with a Foundation Year courses. These are not open access courses for everyone with lower grades than AAA.

Are you sure you meet the widening participation criteria?

If you do meet the guidelines for them, then as long as you pass the Year 0 you will move to Year 1 of a Medicine course (for the vast majority of these courses). Note that Medicine with a Foundation Year courses are usually more competitive (in terms of raw numbers) than standard undergrad medicine courses.

They are all different - it's for underprivileged students e.g. those living in a poorer postcode area, went to state school, received free meals, parents didn't go to university etc.

You would have to go to each university's website to find out.

But, with your grades (BCD?) you wouldn't meet the grades for these courses anyway. They usually require at least BBB / BBC or higher.
