You will need to have taken last year's UCAT, or potentially BMAT, to be able to apply via clearing. So you can't. And in any case, Medicine showing up on clearing is extremely rare and when it does, it is usually open only to those who were already interviewed but rejected.

As said above, you need a current UCAT to be able to apply. Going in via Clearing would mean starting this September and they can't offer places to people on condition that they get a certain UCAT score one year into their course - that wouldn't make any sense.

If on A-level results day you find that you have those three A*s, apply next year with the grades in hand. Get a relevant job in the meantime. It isn't the end of the world if you don't go straight from school to uni and it can often work to your advantage if you don't.

Borderline impossible for this to happen. And even if this hypothetically happened a 99th percentile is considered very very difficult so I doubt that would happen. Best bet is sit the ucat and reapply for next year which imo is better than graduate entry med (NO GAMSAT)😮*💨
