Have you considered a similar but less competitive subject - like occupational therapy, nursing or chiropody/podiatry? Even anotomy/physiology is often less competitive to get onto.

Work experience and enthusiasm are always considered more important than grades in highly vocational NHS courses even for the competetive ones like physiotherapy

Yeah I agree, what Pencil Queen said is a really good idea. Also if you have a healthcare related degree some unis will let you do a shorter degree course for physio i think...

Another thing...have you applied for physio, because if your predicted grades prevent you from getting any offers - which I hope they don't and you still get good grades in the end then you could try clearning??

yeah ive not actually applied for physio yet though but the ucas forms have to be in shortly and im still undecided of whether to apply for sports which requires 3 c's or take a gap year and get experience while doing resits if needed
