UCAS application about gap year

Hello,
I wanted to apply to medicine but my UCAS predictions were low (ccc), so couldn't apply through early entry. I'm taking a gap year. Do I need to apply to any course that meets my predictions this yeat or I don't need to do anything this year?
Thanks

There are several med schools that don't look at predictions, so you could have applied to those, but have missed the medicine application deadline. If you are sure you would resit if you do not get AAA and definitely want to do medicine, there is no point applying for other courses, but if you would take another course if your grades are low, then apply

what will happen if I apply now to any course like biomedical science now and I will reject their offer on the results day? will this affect, when I will apply to medicine in my gap year? Thanks

No, as long as you do not actually start an alternative course, it will not affect a medicine application
