but don't you need reasons like your parents didn't go to uni or went to a school with bad average results for foundation year?

kings only have two requirements (: and not all of them! check nottingham and bristol too. https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/extended-medical-degree-programme-mbbs

or you can apply to normal med courses that dont consider past minimum gcse requirements, like edge hill.
